    I love the idea of the bottles! Definitely cute and easy.

    So many great options!

    Personally, my favorite are the potted plants.  Despite the con of them being a little difficult to transport, they’re adorable and would be a great gift for vendors/guests who’d like to take them home/your own garden if you have any left over.  Plus, they photograph so pretty!

    The potted plant is my vote, really cute.  Will it work well for the number of guests you’re expecting?

    I wanted to do the window thing, but it was really hard to find windows!

    I like the clothesline idea.  I’ve seen something similar that’s not attached to trees, and you could attach them to other things if you have to move it inside.  I have a picture that I found on the Green Wedding Shoes blog that I put into a Word document for ideas when I was planning, but I don’t know the link and the paste from word link isn’t working.  It lookes like two fence posts are in metal pails, and the clothesline is hung between them.   

    If you could do tiny little plants so each person would get one as a favor, I’d like that idea.

    Not to throw out yet another option, but we used clothespins attached to cards and brown paper bags.  Our favors were in the bags, and the clothespins had the table “number” (we used table names, rather than numbers) on them.  A perk of this idea was that if we had to do a last minute change to the seating chart (which we did when someone bailed a few days before the wedding, grrrr), we could just change clothespins rather than have to print new cards.

    I love # 3 & #4! The cards in the plants look SO cute & provide a nice natural element. I would, however, still give the vendors cash tips in addition to the plants. I also love the names on the window, but I like being able to take my escort card with me to the table!
