We were ecstatic when we saw Amanda’s DIY blog at Small Home Big Start. She created unique and adorable honeybee favors for her summer wedding using our Honey Bee Wildflower Seed Mix! We’ll outline how she did it below, but you can learn more and view her amazing photos here.
Amanda says, “When we started talking about making DIY Honey Jars for the wedding favors, it made me think about the bees. We needed to give something back to them too. That’s when I came up with the idea of creating little packets of wildflower seeds that guests could take home.”
She paired her honey jars with a homemade packet of our Honey Bee Wildflower seeds, asking guests on the sign to please “scatter them in your garden or in a ditch on your way home.” Taking it one step further, she and her husband took some of the Wildflowers on their honeymoon to spread, but instead gave them away to people they met on their trip!
Amanda found great resources for the envelopes and labels, so each favor only cost them $.58 (including the seeds).
She put a tablespoon of seed in each packet, which will cover almost 100 square feet. She placed the seed in transparent envelopes and used store-bought labels to print “Honey Bee Wildflower Seed Mix” on the labels using her printer.
She created a fabulous display for the favors using a wood tea box and moss. Check out her photos to see more.
We absolutely adore this idea and are thrilled that we could be such a colorful part of Amanda’s wedding. Have you used Wildflowers in your wedding? Please share your experiences in the comments below or on our Facebook Page. Happy Gardening!
