It’s the last day of our “Weddings In A Jar” series – you can start here if you missed it – and today I am sharing the project that I am making for my friend’s daughter’s wedding that is coming up in a week. These Succulents In Jars Wedding Favors turned out so cute and the bride is happy so, in turn, I am happy.
Shelby wanted a very simple wedding with no fuss but you know how these things go.
Instead of 75 guests there will be 150. Everything has gotten a little more detailed, and that is sometimes what mothers of the bride and groom love to do, so I say just enjoy the day and it’s all going to be beautiful. Like Shelby.
It’s an outdoor wedding and the back yard will be decked to the nines with white lights and table centerpieces filled with baby’s breath and lavender. The theme is actually pretty rustic and nobody had thought about wedding favors as of a month ago so I suggested a few things and these are what Shelby picked.
Sweet and simple, so the girl at least has that part covered. We’re having a “wedding favor assembly party” tomorrow to put the rest of them together. There might be wine and there will for SURE be a lot of laughs.
Succulents are very hardy little plants and, believe me, I need something that is hard to kill. My Sea Urchin Succulents are still going strong so you can assemble these a couple of weeks in advance. Water lightly once a week and don’t get the tags wet!
These will live on as a great reminder of the special day.
Supplies you’ll need:
- Mini Jars (1.5 oz)
- Assorted small succulents (online or from your local nursery)
- Baker’s Twine
- 1/8″ Hole Punch (most standard punches are 1/4″so this makes a nice smaller hole for the tags)
- Free printable labels (download below)
- Extra potting soil (you may not need too much but it helped fill in the tops of the jars).
The succulents can be a bit fragile and, aside from that, these are super easy to assemble. Simply add a succulent to each jar and break apart the dirt around the roots so it will fit down securely. Add more soil if needed and attach the labels using the twine and double knot.
You can customize these labels by adding names and a date like I did in a free program like PicMonkey. They print on standard 8.5 x 11 and I used ivory card stock.
