Dried Flower Wedding Toss & Shower Gift Ideas

Herbs & Ideas for Weddings and Showers

 

 wedding and shower herbs and ideas

  We LOVE Country Weddings, Bridal & Baby Showers here at the farm!


Nothing for us has more romance and tradition than a country farm style wedding & nothing says country wedding more than dried roses, dried lavender and Mason canning jars!


We have fresh dried loose herbs such as lavender buds and red rose petals and buds for your wedding service, wedding shower, wedding favors and wedding toss and confetti needs. Add in a few custom made favors and mason jars to set the mood.


A few suggestions and hints:

  • I like to suggest about 2 handfuls of herbal wedding toss confetti per guest. For 40 guests you will need about 2 pounds (approx. 16 cups) of mixed and scented herbs.
  • A 3x5” bag will loosely hold ¾ cup of herbal potpourri.
  •  I always suggest ordering 1 pound more than you think you will need, you can always find a use for the left over herbs.
  • To scent your herbs add your herbs to plastic or paper bag large enough to hold them and place a few drops at a time onto your herbs, toss and continue to add scent until the level you like is reached. Allow herbs to sit for several days to infuse your scents used before dividing into individual portions.
  • I like to suggest up to 25 extra sachets for guests who want to bring an extra home or for guests who couldn't make the event. It's thoughtful and a basket or container can be used as additional decoration on your table.
