Recycling To The Rescue!

Last weekend we were invited to a July 4th BBQ.  In addition to bringing my favorite pasta salad, I wanted to bring our hostess a baby jade plant.  My jade plant is absolutely huge and is producing baby plants at a rapid rate!  Since I didn't have a small pot for it, I headed to the recycle bin.  
That's right, an aluminum can, wrapped in scrapbook paper, makes a great little planter!  I 'dressed-it-up' with a piece of jute tied into a bow, and this little plant was ready to go.

It doesn't get any easier than that!
If you'd like one, send me your address.  I have a few more!

Now, before you ask about that pasta salad.  No worries, I'll share that recipe soon.  There's still plenty of summer -  and summer parties left!  

Have a great week everyone.  Don't forget to follow, pin, share!

  3. What a cute and thoughtful hostess gift! It's wonderful that your jade plant can be divided and given away to friends and family -- I'm sure your friend appreciated it.

  7. That's such a great little gift idea. I have a few fairly large Jade plants that are so easy to root to get more. I usually just give them away in a plastic cup - I'm thinking I need to up my gift giving game a little !
