Cute little party favors!

I mentioned last week that we had my friends wedding, bachelorette party, and shower all in one weekend… Well, the shower was at my home and I needed some quick and inexpensive favors. I ran to my local store and picked up four of those 6-pack annuals. 4 different types of flowers. I cut the packs up so I ended up with 24 individual flowers… wrapped them in some plastic cello sleeves I already had, tied twine around the outside, and put a little custom tag on.

I put all the flower’s info on the tags so their new owners would know where to plant them. So, the total cost of this little project came out to $12. I already had the twine and plastic sleeves, so no need to purchase those. BUT, they aren’t really that expensive if you need to buy them.

We displayed the favors in a tiered cupcake holder. Everyone loved them! The best part is… if any of these favors are left over… you just have plants (instead of a ton of candles or shot glasses…).

These would also be a pretty great favors for weddings. It was all so easy to assemble… and, the cost is around .50 cents each.

    I have done this a couple time except once I used parchment paper and the other time I used brown wrapping paper.
    The plastic cello looks much easier to tie a string around though! Love the blog!!!

    I love this idea!! So much so that I'm now looking for a reason to throw a party that needs favors.. Maybe I'll just start giving out flowers at the coffee shop and market and gas station and laundromat and so on! Haha.

    Love this! I'd much rather have had this as a favor at the last wedding I attended. Instead I got a framed picture of the couple who I didn't even know that well. It was awkward so I just left it on the table.
