Whatever you're celebrating, plantable party invitations are trending for a reason. These fabulous invites are all about reducing, reusing and recycling. Plantable paper can be used for save-the-date cards, as well as reply and thank-you cards.
Guests who receive a plantable party invitation simply tear off their RSVP card and plant the seed-laced invitation in a flowerpot or garden. They will have a beautiful, lasting memory of your special event when the wildflowers bloom.
Once you decide on plantable invitations, you can either upload your own design and have the invitations sent to you, or order the seed-embedded paper and get crafty at home. For those that want something more formal, plantable envelopes are also available, which offer the added bonus of giving guests another chance to add to their garden design while saving the environment.
Some companies also offer invitations laced with perennial as well as annual flower seeds. It doesn't take much work on the part of the recipient - they'll just need to soak the invitation card in water and then bury it under a thin layer of soil and the flowers will flourish.
Plantable favour boxes are another option and small boxes can be used to individually wrap candies while larger boxes can be filled with whatever your heart desires. A gift-within-a-gift, these favour boxes are a great way to give a thoughtful present while reducing your environmental impact.
There are a variety of methods for inking and colouring the plantable paper, including soy inks and vegetable based pigments. The invite and envelope are made out of biodegradable eco-paper made from post-consumer recycled material and will compost away when buried.
Whether it's a thank-you card, wedding announcement, baby shower or engagement party invite, plantable invitations are a fun, thoughtful way to give your guests a little something special while helping Mother Nature out.
