Air plant favors

Air plants are one of my favorite kinds of plants. They don’t need soil, or much water (just a little spritz here and there) all the plants really need to live is water! That is my kind of plant.

Air plants make amazing favors for weddings or showers. They’re are a great solution if your looking to gift flowers that can last through an entire wedding day and are affordable to buy. Gift miniature (baby) plants on their own with simple thank you tags, or line a table with them placed in tea light holders. A more modern (and less messy) take on the succulent favor trend.

To take the plants and turn them into sweet farewell favors, I placed each air plant into a tea light holder and adorned the front with a simple heart. I’ve tried painting glass many different ways before, yet it never seems to come our quite as bright and bold as I’d like. For these little glass holders, I used Elmer’s new Painter’s markers. I am so happy with the bright and colorful results – perfect for a celebration.

The marker’s worked just as well on paper as they did glass – so turning these pretty favors into seating cards for a wedding will be a piece of cake. Now I’m off to see what other glasses in my house might need a quick paint update.
