I’m a new-bee (hehe) here, and I had a question about wedding favors.
We are having an intimate garden wedding in October, and I wanted to have mini succulents in hessian bags, tied with string, as my favors.
Succulents are easy enough to find, but the mini hessian sacks/bags are hard to find. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I thought about getting a giant sack and creating/sewing mini ones, but I’m not too creative.
Any thoughts or help appreciated!

@katieandbodine101: Can I just ask some questions about the succulents? What are you going to do when people leave them behind?
As for the bag, are you good at sewing? What about hemming? I think that if you don’t have the skills or the resources you might have to find a more workable favour so you don’t end up wasting money on something that eventually doesn’t work.

Succulents are one of my favorite things in the world, so I’d pretty much explode with delight… if anyone at my table didn’t want theirs I’d take it lol.

I love the succulent idea! If you’re not so great with sewing you could always try to use some stitch witch instead. It’s a fabric tape that binds the fabric together when heated up with an iron. Doesn’t work on all fabrics but you can get a roll at Joann’s for around $5 and give it a try!

@BridieBea: Aw, dont assume people are going to leave them! Nobody in my family would think twice about leaving them and with an intimate garden wedding, it seems like she knows her guests would like them. Succulents sound like an amazing idea for that venue IMO. And, if people ended up leaving one or 3 behind, I would take them and grow them in my window or on my balcony. I’m doing seed packets becasue I know my guests are gardeners. If people leave a few packets behind, those seeds will be growing in my garden later this summer! And plus, either succulents or seed packets look amazing in photos!!
