A new trend in wedding receptions is using potted plants, especially succulents, as centerpieces and using them for their Wedding Favors. Crafty brides paint the pots in their wedding colors, creating patterns like chevrons or a diagonal line using painter’s tape. Or you can color sand in your wedding color and plant these cute little heart shaped succulents in it for a conversation starter centerpiece. Guests then cart these centerpieces home at the end of the evening. Other brides are bringing homemade desserts like cookies or cupcakes to the tabletop, using patterns they download online to create foldable boxes in thick paper and tied with ribbons that suit the wedding theme. For a more rustic look, use a brown paper lunch bag to conceal the wedding favor goodies. Fold down the bag slightly and use a hole punch to allow you to thread ribbon in the wedding colors through the hole, and tie a gift tag with a message from the happy couple to the package. Incorporate your custom stamp. When flanked by votives in candleholders with similar ribbons, these bags create a charming tablescape.
