Using leftover seed packets as place settings

Adorning spring dinner party settings with a sweet seed packet for each guest is sure to delight. It’s an easy place marker and take-away gift that can be tucked into a guest’s pocket or purse.


If you have a prolific flower or vegetable garden, plan to save some seeds next season and then divvy them up in glassine envelopes, decorated with stickers, ribbons or stamps.


Poppies, sunflowers and edible calendula flower seeds are popular ones to offer.

Don’t have seed packets to spare? Don’t despair

Simply purchase packets of seeds and attach a self adhesive label with your guest’s name on it. You can also bundle and stuff multiple seed packets into pretty fabric gift bags. Encourage your guests to trade, as they wish.
