a wedding present. Seeds or small shoots are planted in a small pot –
for example those from four-leaf clover, but it can also be daisies or
other owers
– and the potty is presented at the wedding. It can also
function as a place card on the wedding table by adding the names of

and ingredients, an herbal salt with herbs from Provence or, for
example, a bath salt with an essential lavender scent is created. Here,
too, there are no limits to the imagination.

bottle”. For example, you can print a beautiful love saying or a poem on

keepsakes or keep them in a basket to take away.

accommodated in hotels, it is also a nice surprise when a small present
is already waiting in the hotel room.
