Succulent Wedding Favors + Tea Cups = Perfection

Give guests the gift of plantable succulents! Succulents are easy plants for guests to maintain because they are hardy, retain plenty of water, and can withstand colder temperatures than other plants. These easy-to-DIY succulent wedding favors (which double as place cards, too!) are placed in tea cups ready for guests to plant. Since they are “planted” into whimsical tea cups, guests get two gifts in one! Gather plenty of vintage tea cups from places like thrift shops, garage sales, or estate sales – the more mismatched, the better. Each guests will have a one-of-a-kind planter piece to cherish for years.

DIY Button Monogram

Good morning, lovelies, and happy… Tuesday! How was your weekend? My (Emma here!) 4th of July weekend was so much fun! The weather was hot, so my hubby and I had an enjoyable trip to the beach with some fireworks in the evening. I hope you all enjoyed every second of your extended weekend, too! This morning we’re bringing you a beautiful, easy to DIY button monogram. This monogram will add a whimsical touch to your bridal shower, wedding reception, or ceremony and can be reused in your love nest as decoration, too. Even though I’m already married, I plan on making one of these for our home, too!
