We Love: Mini-Succulent Party Favors


We created these mini-succulent party favors for guests at our Spring Showroom Opening Party and we received so many compliments that we thought we’d share the idea. Simple to make and charming whether presented in a large grouping or singularly at place settings, these make great wedding favors or bridal shower favors. Use fresh succulents planted in soil, instead of cuttings, for party favors that are living reminders of your celebration.

  • Start with individually potted succulents. We chose all lavender-hued rosettes, for a uniform look, but these desert plants grow in a variety of shapes and soft colors. Ordering a collection of mixed succulents is usually a less costly option. Follow your floral supplier’s instructions for watering, then use a soft brush to clean off any stray soil.
  • Set each potted succulent into a mirrored glass votive. Make sure you know the size of your potted plants to ensure proper fit. We love the contrast of a high-shine votive with the dusky succulent leaves, and mirrored or mercury glass looks beautiful in candlelight.
  • Finish with a round sticker, to make your event memorable. We used stickers printed with our logo. Planning on using a wedding hashtag? Stickers printed with your hashtag will remind your guests to tag and share their own party photos on social media.
