Bomboniere Trend: Potted Plants

Giving a pot plant as a bomboniere is a wonderful eco-friendly and inexpensive idea. It is not just something your guests will eat or throw away; it is a gift which they can plant in their garden, cherish and grow.

There are many great DIY ideas on how to wrap and label your plants. You can place them in small terracotta pots, metal tins or even plastic cups which you can then decorate in various ways. Putting your plants in small glass jars is another fantastic idea and you can embellish it with a pretty ribbon with a tag attached to it. If you are wondering which pot plants to choose as your wedding favours, read which ones we recommend:

Succulents

Succulents

Succulents are very popular pot plants at weddings and you can see them everywhere from centrepieces to the bomboniere. The best thing about them is that they are very durable and easy to maintain, since they don’t need too much water. Succulents are grown as decorative plants because they are pretty and come in many different and interesting shapes. We suggest you look for miniature succulents which make an inexpensive and effective wedding favour. 

Giving away potted herbs is even more practical. Your guests will love this organic gift and they will add interest and a delightful scent to your tablescape. You can choose aromatic culinary plants like rosemary, thyme, basil and oregano which are very useful in the kitchen for preparing delicious meals. This is a very affordable and yet clever gift which you can even pick from your own garden.

Ferns

Ferns

Ferns are great for centrepieces and they are also a great addition to wedding bouquets. They look very delicate and pretty which is why they make a fabulous bomboniere. Use imagination to create a pretty packaging for them. You can make small jute or linen bags and finish off the look with a beautiful bright-coloured band.

Bonsai

Bonsai

Finally, a small bonsai tree is one of the most beautiful pot plants you can find. You can pack them in a bright-coloured silk cloth to match your colour scheme and tie with decorative ribbon. Alternatively, you can place it in a pretty ceramic pot and label with a cute paper tag.
