Create your own garden bouquets using these handy printable gift tags. A lovely way to share your flowers and herbs with family and friends this summer.
Oh, hello there! Did you miss me? I’m slowly switching over to my summer schedule, so there may be a few weeks here and there when I don’t post on the blog. Of course, you can always keep up with my summer happenings on Instagram. I’m always up to something behind the scenes.
Today, I’m joining Krista from The Happy Housie, along with 17 other blogger friends for the last week of Seasonal Simplicity. You can find my summer DIY project here, and be sure to check out my lavender & blackberry sparkling lemonade that was part of the summer recipes week.
This time around, we’re sharing our summer PRINTABLES…
Although we have a fairly small yard and even smaller garden, I try to make the best of it. Careful planning, as well as some trial and error over the years, means I’m still able to grow a variety of plants. Take the ones above that I cut from our yard this morning and plunked in this milk glass vase until I got around to arranging.
Quite often, I end up with more flowers and herbs than we need. So, I bundle them up, creating pretty garden bouquets to pass along to family and friends.
Garden Bouquets with Printable Gift Tags
These gift bouquets are a lovely way to say “thank you” or “just because”. Take one along to a summer party as a hostess gift or pop by and surprise your neighbour. It’s always fun to brighten someone else’s day. Right?
It’s usually best to cut flowers and herbs first thing in the morning before it’s too hot. If you’re gifting right away, simply wrap the stems in jute and tie on a printed tag.
Herbs can be placed in a paper-towel lined container in the refrigerator if using fresh. Or, hang them upside down in a warm, dry and dark place with good ventilation for a few weeks to use in dried form.
For on-the-go bouquets, cover each bundle of stems in soaked paper towel and a bit of plastic to keep them hydrated. Then, wrap in craft paper with just the tops poking out.
Finish off with jute string and a printed gift tag.
From My Garden Printable Gift Tags
I created these gift tags in two sizes using vintage garden frames from The Graphics Fairy. Use the smaller version for bouquets and the larger ones for baskets of produce.
