Succulent Party Favors

For my daughter’s, baby shower I planned a gender reveal party to celebrate her first pregnancy! I was so excited when she told my husband and I the news. I thought the party was a fun way to celebrate this wonderful news with family and friends. It’s a very exciting time for our family. For favors Ashley came up with this idea of “Watch Me Grow” succulent party favors.

What Kind of Succulents To Use For PArty FAvors.

The best succulents to use for these party favors are mini succulents. Mini succulents are a version of an average size succulent plant. Some mini succulents can grow into larger ones but many stay small. To keep them from growing bigger keep them in a cool dry place with no sun. Here are some names of succulents that stay relatively smalls. Zebra cactus, living stones, echeveria minima, sempervivum, sedum, flower dust, baby jade.

How To Make Succulent Party Favors

Step 1: The plants arrived in great shape. They did an awesome job shipping them. Fill the mini pails with succulents. Just add a little water to the plants. They don’t require much water. These little green cuties are my favorite.

Step 2: Cut 8 inch strands of pink and blue ribbon. There were 20 succulent party favors, so that means 40 strands of ribbons of each color. String the ribbon through the hole and tie it around the pail handle.

Step 3: For tags I order the watch me grow already printed. (alternative) You can use a black magic marker and hand write it in pretty script on a white tag. Punch a hole into the tags. String the ribbon through the hole and tie a bow. The bow should appear bigger than the tag.


Hope you enjoyed this succulent part favors tutorial. Mama Weppner did an amazing job planning everything! The cake was designed by a local baker, the flowers were a combination of blue and pink flowers with lots of baby’s breath. The food was so good and catered from our favorite local Italian restaurant. Everyone had a happy time!

   Both  Ashley and Greg knew the gender of the baby before the rest of us. I am sure you are all wondering what color the inside of the cake revealed. The consensus was a boy.

It’s a boy! We all couldn’t be more thrilled!
