Party Favor Pots II

Last week's cute Easter party favor pots were a hit with our guests and they all seemed anxious to get busy potting the herb seeds they received. With that, I decided to use up the leftover Plantable Coir Pots to give another gift sampler to everyone for Andrew's birthday dinner celebration we had on Saturday. I gathered up the supplies and this time the simple fillers gave a nod to the Birthday Boy's interests:

  • Burpee herb seed packs - Parsley, Oregano, etc. - this week there was a buy one, get one at Menards = .50 each
  • Birthday Boy's current beverage of choice for everyone to sample and toast with - New Glarus Spotted Cow beer $7.99 / 6 pack
  • Paint chip note booklets to honor Birthday Boy's handy skills - handmade / free
  • Branch pencils found at Marshalls to appeal to Birthday Boy's rustic nature- 10 for $5
  • Mini cupcakes and candles for everyone to light and blow out with their wishes for Birthday Boy - 12 for $3
  • Scalloped tissue paper
The paint chip note booklets are easily made by cutting down several scrap papers to fit into the variously sized folded paint chip cards and then stapling the bottom, matchbook style.

On some of them, I cut across the tab end with a scallop scissors for an extra finishing touch.

It all assembled easily and quickly...

To make a welcoming and festive display!

Fun and done!
