One way of giving away plants as favors is to use small potted plants on the tables as all or part of the table decorations. Tiny potted plants can also be used as place card holders. The nursery pots can be covered with tissue paper, burlap, or other fabric and tied with a colorful ribbon or twine or even repotted into inexpensive decorative or plain clay pots.
Plants that work great for this are: herbs (rosemary, thyme, sage, lavender), mini palms, mini schefflera, young Shasta daisies, sunflowers seedlings, young ornamental grasses or bamboo, as well as starter plants such as tomatoes.
