Unforgettable Favors: Arbor Day Trees


Instead of a trinket that (let's be honest) will most likely get tossed out in a week or two... why not give a unique, unforgettable, and inexpensive favor that will last a lifetime?

The Arbor Day Foundation has a wonderful favor program that makes this sustainable concept easy and affordable.  Most importantly, the program supports The Arbor Day's mission to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees!  Your guests will delight in the lasting memory, and appreciate the thoughtful sentiment.

The Arbor Day Foundation offers three options of evergreen trees: redwoods, pines, or spruce trees.  Each tree comes packed in a recyclable tube that converts into a birdfeeder after the tree is planted!  Make the favor even more unique by opting for a customized label, featuring a special saying, photograph, or a personal message.

You can tie the theme into your entire wedding, shower, or rehearsal dinner by incorporating the gift trees into your bouquet, centerpieces, and other decor.  Your floral designer can work with the trees to keep their root systems intact.  Even the trees from your bouquet will be ready for planting after the big day!

The Arbor Day Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit conservation and education organization. Visit their site for more information on how to make these special trees part of your wedding day!
