As many of yall know im on bedrest so im always looking for things i can do. Today i decided i want to make my baby shower favors but i really want to make some people will use or something that they wouldnt throw away ... Any ideas .. whats a cool favor you got or seen?
I find flower seeds to be something a lot of people enjoy (at least around here, where most people have lawns/yards/somewhere to grow them).
If you want to do something other than tying ribbon to a packet of seeds, you could make biodegradable seed paper. Basically it's homemade paper with seeds embedded/dried into it. Then the recipient just plants the paper. The paper biodegrades and the seeds grow. It's a pretty easy project, and you could write a cute message on the paper.
Another alternative is seeds or a bulb, a decorated flower pot, a baggie of soil, etc. so people can grow something indoors. And rather than flowers, you could make it something edible like herbs or a mini tomato plant.
I rarely keep or use party favors myself, but the one time I did wildflower seeds at a birthday party I had people going around collecting any of the leftovers that others had left behind.
