Pretty Tea Cup Favors

Happy Sunday! If you’re looking for a unique favor for your next event, why not repurpose some orphaned tea cups. There are a gazillion uses for these lovelies but I think they make the perfect vessels for tiny plants and look so charming. They’re perfect for give-aways at weddings or events!

You’ll need:

  • Tea cups – your cupboard, flea markets and antique stores are perfect sources for these lovelies
  • Tiny plants like ferns, succulents, violets, and orchids – the selections are endless
  • Moss – any craft store will carry this item
  • Paper, twigs, and all-purpose glue for a place card pennant (optional of course) – again, craft stores have tons of paper options and your back yard can most likely offer up some twigs

Here’s how ya do it:

  1. Simply repot the plant of choice directly into the cup. It’s important to have plenty of soil around the root system of the plant.
  2. To conceal the dirt, add moss around the base of the plant.
  3. You’re done! OR you can add hand-made place cards like I did. Cut paper to the desired size and shape, write your guest’s name on the card then glue it to a tiny twig. Poke it into the cup and you’re done!
