Easy and Quick Last Minute Easter Favors


Spring/Easter makes me feel like everything's new and fresh.
That's why I like to send my guests home from Easter Dinner with a plant.
It just seems right to me.

''To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow''
Audrey Hepburn

So this year when my mind went to plants,
my pocketbook didn't follow.

I needed to think up a way to put together something inexpensive
so I could continue with my tradition.

I was at Walmart (what the heck would I do without that store?)
 perusing the garden section when I saw they had 6 packs on sale.
I grabbed a couple of Petunias 


and headed inside to find peat pots.


Once I got home I gave each peat pot a paint job in various Eastery colors.
While waiting for them to dry,
 I hopped on the computer to check out my Graphics.


Printed out some Easter Graphics
and once the pots were dry, glued them on


The next day I transplanted the Petunias into their own peat pots.
I tore a coffee filter up and placed a piece in the bottom of each pot to prevent the dirt from coming out but still allowing for complete drainage.


There ya go!
A buck a 6 pack, peat pots $1.59,
12 plant favors for under $4.00 ♥♥

And since the Petunias are in the peat pots,
the whole pot can go right into the ground.
Easy peasy for my guests too!


All ready for Easter Sunday
