Shop Succulent Wedding Favors DIY Inspiration Idea from

Spring is on its way (we promise), and with it thoughts of nature. Give the gift of green to guests with DIY succulent wedding favors! Succulent favors are both eco-chic and budget friendly, and your guests will love getting a plant to take home and grow as a symbol of your love. You can buy mini succulents from your local garden shop or nursery for $3-$4 each. These cute mini bowls are less than $1 each and come in a case of 100 or packs of 5, making it easy to order the amount you need for your wedding, shower, or birthday party. We’ve included our printable tags that say “Let Love Grow” and a sign that says “All things Grow with Love” to accompany your favors.

Here's what you need to make DIY Succulent Wedding Favors! | Smarty Had A Party

What you need:

Step 1:

Remove succulent from container. Add a little water to mini bowl, and place succulent inside. Press soil down to keep plant moist.

Step 2:

Cut out printable “Let Love Grow” tags. Take bamboo pick and fold tag in half using adhesive to keep in it place. We used a tape runner, but you could also use a glue stick or a small piece of double stick tape.

Step 3:

Place bamboo pick with tag in the soil of planted succulent.
