Sunflowers for Your Summer Wedding

Spring wedding season is upon us, and summer is not far behind! Can you think of anything that represents summer better than the sunflower?


This beautiful flower is highly decorative, with small centers and petals that range from pure gold to gold with brown. A true sun worshipper, its head follows the sun as it crosses the sky blooming in the summer.

In the botanical world, the sunflower (Helianthus annuus) has a primary meaning which is gifts of radiant warmth. How perfect for a party theme! Considered happy-go-lucky flowers, sunflowers are often linked to loyalty and longevity – perfect sentiments for your wedding day.

To help you incorporate the beauty and symbolism of the sunflower into your special day, Tree Beginnings has added two new products to our line of eco-friendly wedding favors.

Our Sunflower Seed Eco-Gift Box Favors are made entirely from  recycled materials. The card is personalized with your names & date. A terra cotta clay pot is nestled inside the box with a soil pellet and finished with your choice of oatmeal, yellow or terra cotta salmon raffia ribbon.

Your other option is our Sunflower Secret Seed Garden Seed Favors. These favors measure 3″‘ x 3″‘ inches and consist of 2 pieces of paper, your choice of cover design, and personalized translucent paper. The corners are folded like a box and the seed packet is secretly stored inside.

All of our green wedding favors are personalized and contain a special thank you message for your guests.

Light-enchanted sunflower, thou
Who gazest ever true and tender
On the sun’s revolving splendour.
– Pedro Calderon de la Barca,
Magico Prodigioso (sc. 3),
(Shelley’s translation)
