This time last year I was helping with a few details for my nephew's wedding.
They were trying to stick to a budget, and seating cards weren't anywhere near the top of
the priority list. I suggested pots of wheat grass - the biggest bang for the $!
I did 150 for them, in all my years of planting wheat grass I've never been so nervous about it growing, I took care of them like orphaned baby chicks!
For instructions go to my planting wheat grass post.
The clay pots were from Hobby Lobby at 50% off, making them .20 each.
I used Light Buttermilk acrylic paint, testing it ahead of time I knew it would peel a little
once you start watering the seeds, but we liked the aged look and were fine with it.
The platter set on an easel was a thrifting find, painted with chalkboard paint.
They came up with the cute play on words.
The skewers were from the Dollar Store and cut at assorted lengths.
We used scrapbook paper cut in a decorative shape, printed guests names on them,
then glued to the skewers.
A fun, fresh statement for about .26 each.
A budget friendly idea you could use for any event.
Happy 1st Anniversary Chad & Julie!
