So something life cool happened recently. My one and only sibling, my older brother Eric, got married to a hilarious, beautiful artist/graphic designer, Amanda. On this oh jubilant of occasions, I decided to bring some favors of my own creation for these two children of the earth.
My dad insisted on a rehearsal dinner. So off to a local brew house they chose in Healdsburg, CA we went. He enlisted my help, wanting a cool party favor for the group.
I thought succulents would be cool idea. THIS IS THEIR STORY:
Our couple to be is super into the outdoors. I wanted something earthy, rustic but personal so it could become an actual keepsake. I ordered the succulents here and the silver, metal buckets here. These made a personal but affordable favor, averaging out to $2.27 per favor at a quantity of 24 (including shipping and tax). Note: this is a small quantity so the price would decrease per favor for larger orders.
I decided to fashion some cute tags for a sentimental touch. “Let love grow wild. Amanda <3 Eric. 12/5/15. You can download the template I created here: Succulent Tags. I used this cool, patterned paper pack from Target, some fancy line scissors, rubber cement and twine.
Here they are, all 24 in their glory.
As they wanted a relaxed, low key dinner, my dad’s creative girlfriend used a burlap table runner and decorations. The table looked adorably rustic.
They went with the wedding flowers and nature-inspired motif so they made some additional appearances.
And now they live so serene and chic on my desk.

Congrats Eric and Amanda (as they were just honeymooning in Thailand and Vietnam , those world adventurers). Love you guys!
