Many months ago, I attended a wedding for my two friends, Hillary and Paul. It was an elegant affair that took placed in a beautiful farm house, right in the Catskill Mountains of NY. Hillary teaches microscopy, and Paul is a rock climber. They are both lovers of nature and of the outdoors. To incorporate these themes, they had the unique idea of using rocks for the place cards, and Air Plants as the wedding favors. WHAT A GREAT IDEA! It was so refreshing to be able to take home favors that are useful and that carry on the memory of such a happy occasion!

What are Air Plants?
An Air Plant is a plant that grows harmlessly upon another thing- a tree, power lines, or other structure, and obtains its moisture and nutrients from the air, rain, and sometimes from debris accumulating around it. It doesn’t need soil to grow.
The tables were set elegantly with the plants in 3″ square boxes when guests arrived. ( I wasn’t a blogger at that time, so I didn’t take many pictures with posting them in mind.) Everything looked so simple and beautiful. You can find them HERE for literally a few cents per box.
You can then order the air plants HERE for just over $1 a plant.
If you choose to use rocks as place-cards, all you need is a paint pen to write the names and table numbers on. You can find the paint pens HERE. I like how they used metallic paint pens to dress the rock up a bit! 🙂
