CUTE AND AFFORDABLE DIY WEDDING FAVOURS

DIY Wedding Party Favours

I’m not gonna lie, my engagement party was basically a wedding in disguise. As much as I tried to fool everyone into thinking it was a simple garden party, I Pinterested the shit out of that party. And yes I just used “Pinterest” as a verb.

I wouldn’t change a thing of course – you know how much I love a good DIY and hey, it was good practise for the real thing! I don’t know what it is about my personality that enjoys repetitive mindless tasks on a Sunday afternoon, but making these little party favours is my idea of a weekend well-spent.

Since our wedding is taking on a botanical air, we decided to make our party favours and our Save the Date cards (coming soon!) garden themed. So, I found approximately 80 packs of herb seeds on eBay for cheap. They were a mixture of basil, thyme, marjoram, chives, sage and parsley. And since storytelling, reading and writing are engrained into our lives too, wrapping the seeds in book pages seemed like a pretty genius idea.

It’s super simple to do – just wrap the seed packet as if you’re wrapping a present. A tiny little botanical present. Then decorate with ribbon or string and write the name of the herb on the front of the packet. Et voila!

It’s time-consuming if you’ve got 120 wedding guests, but it costs almost nothing and I think they look great! The most challenging part of this DIY for me was ripping the first page out of a book without crying. It took me about an hour to choose a book I wasn’t that attached to, hence the weird tribal exerts and references to racial history…

Top tip: If you’re brave enough or have two copies, use a book you both love.

(Just don’t tell me about it)
