Wine and Succulents, a great Wedding favor and table card

wine and cham­pagne cork suc­cu­lent favors for wed­ding tables

I had to share a great idea my friend Lau­ra Greaves of Viva La Suc­cu­lents cre­at­ed for one of our upcom­ing wed­dings this sum­mer. Jes­si­ca and Sam want to cap­i­tal­ize on dual themes of the wine region they love (being Cal Poly grads) and being green.  Obvi­ous­ly with all the flo­ral and suc­cu­lents we have here on the Estate already (as pic­tured), it will be a per­fect themed tie-in.

Here’s just one cool idea adding a sus­tain­able use for the pletho­ra of wine and cham­pagne corks from our local wine regions. Tak­ing advan­tage of the many unique suc­cu­lents that thrive here in Cal­i­for­nia and due to Native Sons Nurs­ery being right here in our own back­yard, there are so many col­or­ful plant choic­es. Com­bin­ing these as design ele­ments makes a great favor; wed­ding guests can take them home and start their own lit­tle gar­dens with zero effort.  As my friend Lau­ra likes to say, ‘just pick and stick’ and voila, a new gar­den is on its way—and a nice memen­to from a beau­ti­ful wed­ding that will live on.
