Want to give flower seed wedding favors? We found a stylish way to do it! Read on for more + join the list for the latest.
Happy Friday! Today we’re sharing an eco-friendly favor idea: flower seeds as wedding favors! These plantable heart-shaped seed favors make beautiful party favors for weddings, showers, and engagement parties.
If you think flower seeds as wedding favors only work for spring and summer, think again! These seeds make great take-home gifts for any time of year. At the first sign of spring, guests will be excited to plant their flower seeds and remember your wedding day as the seeds bloom on a sunny sill or outside in their favorite garden spot.
While many wedding favors are thrown away, these are functional, give-back-to-Mother-Nature tokens of your appreciation for guests traveling far and wide or locally. Everyone can benefit from seeds to plant and it is a truly sustainable option. Plus, these particular flower seed favors are made by SeedWeddingFavors from 100% biodegradable and recycled materials.
Isn’t that such a nice idea and a breath of fresh air for favors? No more sitting on a shelf collecting dust — blooming in the sun instead! :)
There are many flower seed wedding favors on the market but we chose this as our top pick and here is why: they make the seed paper themselves, so they have COMPLETE control over the seeds that go into them, the color, and freshness.
Other seed favors? Not necessarily.
This means your seed favors for guests are always fresh and made to order.
The result? Seed mix that produces big beautiful blooms for well-known and well-loved garden flowers. Some of the blooms you’ll find include:
– pink and red poppies
– black-eyed susans (mine just bloomed here and I’m loving ’em!)
– blue bachelor buttons (I had to look these up, I never heard of them before — take a look, they’re beautiful!)
– shasta daisies
– pink cosmos
… and more!
They even test its growth four times a year to ensure germination. They mean business about these seed wedding favors, you guys!
Do the flower seed wedding favors bloom again?
This was a big question I had: once planted, is that it? One season of blooms? Not necessarily! Some of the flowers are annuals for first year blooms… but others ARE perennials for blooms year after year (I love that!) This means your guests will adore seeing a few of YOUR flowers in bloom in their sunny garden space year after year.
How do you plant the heart seed paper?
You plant it the same way you’d plant any seeds. Simply keep warm, damp, and in direct sunlight.
How much do these seed favors cost?
These particular flower seed favors are wildly popular right now and are affordable, too. They are UNDER $1 (around $0.78 each!) Note: the paper feather seeds are around $1.75.
