These seasonal favors are easy, inexpensive, and oh-so-charming! Put them atop each place setting, arrange them en masse on a favor table, or even group them together in the center of each table for a casual centerpiece that guests can easily take home at the end of your event.
We picked up small pots of bulbs in bloom at our local grocery store for $3.99 each; each pot had 3 flowers in it, which averages to $1.33 per stem. (Tulips are a colorful and widely-available choice; hyacinths are also a pretty, very fragrant alternative.)
We removed each bulb from the pot and planted it in a small plastic cup. Each cup was placed inside a mini brown paper bag, decorated with guests' initials. (If you're using a group of these flower bags as a centerpiece, you can write the table number on each one.) We punched holes at the top of each bag, and added grommets to the front holes for a finished look. Stringing ribbon through the holes is a pretty finish, and also keeps the flowers straight in the bag.
