Air plants make amazing favors for baby showers, bridal showers, and many other parties and events. They are a modern and unexpected take on the already popular succulent favor trend, but way more cute and way less messy - no dirt needed!
Air plant favors are ideal because they can also do double duty as centerpieces or party decor before your guests take them home. You can keep it simple and arrange your air plant favors right on the table, or choose a more personalized way to display them. Our Modern Mini Air Plant Planters, shown above, are an easy and affordable way to present air plant favors to your party guests. Their neutral color means you can personalize them with a monogram, date, image or message to complement your party theme if you want to get crafty! Add interest by displaying several types of different air plants or varying the heights by placing your air plant favors atop stacks of vintage books or our wooden air plant pedestals.
For a DIY party favor that is just right for a beach themed event, try collecting shells from the beach and tucking an air plant into each for your guests to take home. Shells are the perfect little holders for tillandsia, since there's no dirt needed and the air plants can be nestled right in. Or try tea light candle holders instead, and use a paint marker or ribbon to customize the look to match your theme.
For a dreamy, boho favor idea, we love the look of tucking an air plant or two into a mini dreamcatcher or small wreath made from organic materials. Crystals and geodes make wonderful holders for air plants too - choose crystals with special meaning or by color to complement your party theme, then nestle air plants in their nooks or use copper wire to wrap and bind the air plants atop each stone. Your air plant favors could even serve as table numbers or place cards if you added printed cardstock - one side with seating information, and the other side containing care instructions for your guest's new tillandsia that they get to take home with them.
