brittnamrogo :  Just count me as one of the people who would grab any left behind! My friends did centerpieces that were a few succulents in a box with greenery and I straight up took the entire thing and carried it on a train for 18 hours! 🙂 As long as the names are on flags that are removeable as opposed to like writing them on the pots themselves, its a yes from me!

Those are super cute! Succulents are the one plant I am capable of keeping alive and I love tiny plants for special spots or windowsills. I’d be pumped to get that favor.

I would LOVE to receive something like that as a wedding favor.  If we wind up with an outdoor desert venue I plan on doing these as favors at our wedding.

brittnamrogo :  Those are adorable! I think the box definitely covers up all your hard work though!

cute! I went to a gala that had a “DIY succulent bar” or something. We all got a plant in a little pot like yours, then they had glass bowls with different types of rocks, signs, or I don’t even remember… and we made our own little pot. Well, they had someone there scooping the dirt so we didn’t get messy in our nice dresses. 

I was excited… but so many of us had a few too many drinks and we forgot to bring home our plants…haha

I love them and think your guests will too!  So cool that you grew them yourselves. Don’t bother with the boxes though as others have said it covers them up and isn’t particularly more practical.

P.s . I defo thought for an instant you were going to offer succulents and (LIVE) chicks … as in baby chicken live bird.. when I speed read the first post ‘hen and chicks’

Bravo!  I love it.  And those who can’t bring it home can leave it or give to someone – honestly I would love several.  A little not eattached to twine or coordinating ribbon is nice.  I am tempted to say leave it on the table as part of the table display or if money is tight gather them in the middle as your display.  But this is athoughtful and kind gift and one which people can take home.  I don’t think they want a magnet with your mug or a bottle opener with your name and date on it.
