Wedding Favors Gifts
First decide on what type of seeds you want to give your guests -
Should it be flower seeds, vegetable seeds or perhaps healthy edible seeds like sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds that taste great and are a brilliant alternative to unhealthy sugared almonds or chocolate wedding favors?
Or personalize your seed gifts by giving green-fingered gardners the vegetable and flower seeds and the edible ones to anyone who is more likely to kill a plant then nurture it!
For spice lovers, choose chilli seeds...
Eco Friendly Wedding
For an eco friendly wedding, buy recycled colored paper from a stationary store and make small packets that can be filled with seeds.
You can either draw shapes like leaves or hearts onto cards then use these as a template for each seed packet or you can make simple mini envelopes - take a large envelope, open it out so you can see how the "shape" is made, scan it onto a computer and reduce in size to make a smaller template.
Each packet should contain 20-30 seeds and the instructions for what to do with them can be written on the back of the packet.
