I came across this idea on MarthaStewartWeddings.com and just fell in love with it. We've moved! Please visit us at: Ariel Yve Design
If you'd like to go green while saving a bit of green, let your lush floral centerpiece blooms double as favors by providing your guests with waterproof bags to take flowers home in.
Have cellophane bags custom-printed with a message asking guests to pick a few flowers (foryourparty.com made ours).
During the cake cutting have your coordinator set out small stacks of your bags with twist ties on each of the guest table. At the party's end your guests can carry on (and carry off) a bit of the celebration.
Cute, economical and eliminates the dilemma of what to do with all of the beautiful flowers at the end of the night.
