wedding party favors

create a garden of love with seeds

When you’re busy planning your wedding it’s difficult to see beyond that one special day. But the fact is, your wedding is the start of a lifetime of special occasions. You’ll soon find yourself planning many other events, including anniversaries, baby showers, birthdays, graduations, holidays and more. Your new family will want to enjoy all of these special times with your loved ones and friends.

You could start a tradition now that carries through the years ahead. Consider choosing party favors for weddings that becomes a family’s trademark or theme.

Personalized seed packets would be a perfect choice. Seeds convey many different messages: the blossoming of your love, the birth of a new baby, another year older, even a living memorial to someone who has recently passed. You can give a different flower for every occasion, creating a virtual garden of love for your family and friends.

Another choice for this tradition is an edible party favor, including mints, candy or delicate packets of tea. All of these convey the sweet memories of your special occasions, and you can personalize their wrappers or containers with whatever message you wish.

With so many personalized favors to choose from, maybe you’d prefer to give something different for every occasion. That’s a great tradition too, because each invitation you send will start your friends guessing as to what you’ll be giving them this time.

No matter what products you decide to use as your traditional family favor, you will have found a way to extend your events into long and pleasant memories. This is certainly something to consider as you search for your personalized wedding item. After all, you’re not just creating one special day, but a lifetime of special occasions.

Things are great these days at the Farmhouse and we continue to be busy with weddings, showers, baptisms and first communions. Graduations will start to pour in soon as well.

TIPS: The fall bulbs are blooming Daffodils and now the Tulips. Time to start thinking about summer plans. We usually recommend ordering your guest favors about 4-6 weeks prior to your event date and avoid last minuite stress. Our regular delivery is 10 business days, so start thinking about flowers and trees and herbs for your upcoming event.
Kind Regards, Plant a Memory, Sheila, Robin, Amy

Outdoor weddings are extremely popular among couples who want to incorporate nature into their celebrations and share their love of the outdoors with their guests. In addition to encouraging loved ones to give back to the earth, there are many great reasons to give tree seedlings or seed packets as wedding favors.

They are symbolic of the couples growing love, they are versatile and easy to personalize, and they are budget-friendly and simple to make.
Not just for spring or summer weddings, seeds or tree seedlings make thoughtful, green, favors any time of the year. While most are easy to assemble and personalize, it helps to choose a flower or tree that will be easy for your guests to plant and maintain.
The symbolism of planting seedlings is unmistakable. It is a romantic reminder for your guests that your love will grow indefinitely. They can wish you well each year as they witness the growth of the flowers or trees that they planted in your honor.
Your options aren’t limited to seed packets. You can give out bulbs in votive candles, for example, creating an attractive table centerpiece or place setting, as well as a favor. Think beyond traditional plants and consider herbs, or surprise guests by placing seeds in matchbooks instead of matches.

Finally, you will inspire your guests to think “green” and plant for a greener tomorrow.  Earth-friendly favors can be accented with containers as simple as a paper packet or as elegant as a small bamboo box or metal tin. The important part is to make them a representation of your love and a remembrance of your special day.

tips for a greener wedding, a growing trend.

Many brides in the modern world are looking for a way to make their weddings more unique, and more environmentally responsible. This trend toward green weddings has been growing for a number of years, and environmentally responsible weddings are expected to gain further traction going forward. If you are getting married and planning your own wedding, there are some things you can do to make your own celebration greener and more environmentally friendly.

Just use these tips for a greener and more environmentally responsible wedding day: Outdoor wedding photograhpy is beautiful, let nature be your decorator!

 Choose locally grown flowers in season. Buying flowers from far away means that they must be shipped thousands of miles, which wastes precious fossil fuels and increases your environmental impact.

 Print your wedding invitations, place cards and menus on recycled paper. You can find some great invitations and other printed materials, all from companies that use recycled paper.

 Wear a family heirloom wedding gown, or pick up a dress from your local vintage clothing store. Vintage wedding gowns are sure to be unique, and they are a green alternative to traditional wedding garb.

 Give your guests bird seed hearts to hang in your yards and feed the birds, instead of rice. Birds can be harmed when they ingest dry grains of rice and it expands in their stomachs. If you want to include confetti in your celebration, choose a variety made with recycled paper.

 Give environmentally friendly party favors like seed packets and tree seedlings to the guests at your rehearsal dinner, wedding and reception. Your guests will think of you and your wedding day every time they look at their gardens or back yards.

Plant a tree by giving them as gifts at weddings and special events because they help the environment, help control water,
help stabilize the soil, help provide sade and shelter.

Plant a tree for future generations
to plant a tree , you don’t have to be a forester!

Trees Help the Environment: Three More Reasons to Plant a Tree
It seems that everyone knows that trees purify the air by taking in contaminants and releasing oxygen. They consume huge quantities of carbon dioxide, cutting down on greenhouse gasses in the air. That’s not all they do, however.

 Trees Stabilize the Soil
Big trees need big roots. Some kinds of trees grow their roots outward, and some grow them downward. Either way, those roots hold onto a lot of dirt and debris. Trees have roots systems that are strong enough to keep the topsoil in place, instead of allowing dry soil to be blown away by the wind. When an area loses its trees, it seems to be only a matter of time before it also loses the rest of its plantlife. 

 In wetter and snowier conditions, it isn’t only the wind that threatens the soil. Trees hold the sides of hills together, preventing many landslides. On a smaller scale, they also help keep the soil from sliding into the rivers and lakes. This allows waterside plants a chance to grow and give river animals a safe place to dig their burrows.

 Trees Control Water
In the same way that the trees hold onto the soil, if you plant a tree they also hold onto water. Flood damage tends to be more severe in places that have lost their trees. The soil gets washed away, and there is little to slow the torrents.

 Some kinds of trees pull water up from deep in the ground, releasing some of it from their leaves into the air through transpiration. It is well-known that trees don’t survive well in desert conditions. Did you know that they also help to prevent desertification by recycling the groundwater?

 Trees Provide Shade and Shelter
 Have you ever wondered why so many small farm fields are surrounded by narrow lines of trees? Those trees break up the wind, sheltering the crops from harsh weather. Trees serve as wind-breaks in nature, too, allowing other plants to colonize the clearings and providing shelter for wildlife.

 Trees along rivers and creeks shade the water, keeping it cool enough for the fish to survive. Warm water holds less dissolved oxygen than cool water. If the trees are cut down from the creek banks, the water overheats during the summer. This suffocates the fish. The bacteria which feed on the sudden wealth of dead fish use up more oxygen, and kill more fish.

 When you consider all the important things that trees do for the environment, it makes sense that planting more trees is a good thing to do. Giving people trees to plant can inspire friends and family to plant  a tree for for a greener tomorrow.
