I LOVE to garden. I love everything about it: the feel of the soil in my hands, the smells of the earth, the sweetness of the new baby plants. Gardening brings out the best in me, puts me in a good mood, and calms me like nothing else.
So, at my next party, if I can share a little bit of my good gardening karma with my guests by sending them home with fresh herb party favors, what could be better.
To make these party favors, I bought some herbs at Home Depot. Then I split up the plants (I got two favors per pot of herbs) and repotted them in these pretty SOLO heavy duty paper cups.
I attached a bow made out of grosgrain ribbon to each one, and used Glue Dots to make sure the bow didn't slip down the cup. Then I wrote the name of the herb on Martha Stewart Home Office Labels and attached a label to the front of each cup. Easy!
Didn't they turn out so great? They're perfect for any summer party where you want to share a little bit of sweet smelling nature, and boy, do they smell sweet!
