I love making special place cards or escort cards. It works even better when they double as favors! Today, we’re partnering with Ecoscraps to make place cards from teeny tiny terra cotta pots. We painted our pots all the colors of the rainbow and planted grass inside to feel summery and fresh. While this DIY takes a little bit of prep work, the steps are easy-peasy and the grass actually grows pretty quickly. We used Ecoscraps plant food along with soil to fill each little pot. Then, we just placed the seeds on top of the soil and with water and sunlight, saw growth within a couple of days. One thing we like about Ecoscraps is that it diverts food waste from landfills to create organic, sustainable soils and plant foods. It’s a win-win! Enter below for a chance to win a $250 gift card to Home Depot so you can pick up some soil to try for yourself!

These little pots go along great with summer party decor. It’s like every guest has a little garden right at their place! Then, when the party is over, they can take them home and continue to watch them grow. Because Ecoscraps recycles food waste to create their organic soils and plant food, you can rest easy knowing that you’re helping out the environment and your little plant friends. Happy planting!
