Don't Worry It's just Me....

I hosted a bridal shower for my friend a few weeks ago.  The party was a wine tasting party, in a very old house/bed & breakfast historical farm on the water.  It was an amazing setting.  The party favors that I came up with was to give out succulent plants, mini terrariums if you will in a wine glass.  I figured they are the easiest plants to take care of, as long as you give them good dirt.  So after consulting stormthecastle.com (just found it via google search and emailed the guy), I was able to get the right layers of medium to plant the succulents in.  He now has directions and links to my photos on his site. 

I also had left over plants and planted them in my sea shells with the same "dirt". 

I then used an oil marker to write the names of the bride and groom, with a heart in the middle of them.  I then painted the heart red with glass paint.  It looks very good.  I have never done anything like this before, and quite frankly i have completely set myself aback.  I am gaining a lot more confidence that I can do anything I set myself up for! 

I also did these water arrangements, but I will post those on another link.  I'll just say, I am starting a side business and may possibly be doing a wedding in the next year already. 

I figured this was so easy, and such a great hit, I knew it would be nice of me to share the idea. 

Thanks for looking

Jenny

I think these are so cute, and it sounds like they went nicely with the shower location!

I love this idea. It would actually be perfect for my reception. I work at a nursery and we have a ton of extra hens and chicks.Can I steal it?
