Wedding Prep #'s 3 & 4

Completed the seed packet wedding favors at 6:35 this morning. On the left is the front of the packet, on the right is the back of the packet.
113 of them..I love the fact that the seeds were harvested from my gardens.
How cool is this container? Thanks Dee for letting us borrow it...(hope I remember to return it, lol)
Finished the water bottles just a few minutes ago. Random wedding related words and symbol stickers....
on strips of scrapbook paper. Scrapbook paper was also used in making the seed packets.
Gotta run, more prep to do~!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today I am Thankful for the refreshing Fall weather we are having!

What neat ideas! You grow so many different flowers, it's only fitting that you share them with your guests!! Neatly packaged, too! I like the water bottles, as well. It will be a wonderful wedding!

They are fabulous Darla! You are making me tired just reading all about it, but I'm sure you are having fun.

Becca's Dirt said...

Darla we appreciate you posting as the wedding plans progress. I know it takes time from wedding stuff. Love this idea and the guest will be so happy to have these seeds to remember the wedding by. Maybe it will spark a person who wants to garden but hasn't taken the plunge. Have a good day.

RainGardener said...

The seed packets are delightful! Love the scrapbook paper you chose - it's hard picking from such a huge variety isn't it? What a great idea - did you think it up? And all from your own garden makes it so special.

Pecans---I only shell those pecans as I need them.
I give some away, I eat some, I put them in recipes.
I still have some from last year.

These are adorable! How clever and creative! I just spent time, reading your blog posts since the last time I visited. How exciting about your daughter's wedding! I love the colors and the patterns and the hat boxes are wonderful! I can just 'imagine' what the cake will look like. It will definitely be a 'fun' wedding! Good luck with everything!

Valerie said...

You are so good! I needed you last December! I loved the seeds that you sent me. I still have peppers growing now that were from your seeds.

With being out of the loop for a day or two, I just had to hustle over and see what you are doing, and wow! have you been busy. You have the greatest ideas ever, and the wedding will be extra-special due to all of your loving personalization. Wonderful!

Wow, I love the seed packets and all of your creative touches. I started following you today.

Corner Gardener Sue said...

I wish I was as creative as you are. If I tried to make these, the folds would not be straight, and the flaps would not line up properly. I love what you wrote on the labels! I look forward to seeing wedding photos.
