Project Summary:

Materials Needed:

Bamboo favors are a great way to say thank you, whether it be a business event, birthday party, or wedding, as a harbinger of good luck for all your guests. Our lucky bamboo favors are customizable to suit your needs and require very minimal maintenance.

In this article we will go over the elements needed to create your own bamboo event favors.

Step 1: Selecting your Vase

You will want to find a vase that best suits your needs; it can be square, rectangular, or round. We offer a variety of different vases in our Glass Vase / Container section. We will be featuring the Bubble Votive Glass in this article.

Step 2: Preparing your Favor

When creating your favor it is important that you add a thin base layer of rocks/marbles/gravel to the bottom of your vase. In this article we are using Ice Blue Marbles. The rocks/marbles/gravel in the favor provides stability to the bamboo to keep them in place. Once your vase is prepared with the base layer your bamboo is ready to be added. In this article we are using 3 - 4" Individual Bamboo Sticks.

Step 3: Finishing your Favor

We recommend using the 4" Individual Bamboo Sticks so your favor is not top heavy. Place your arranged bamboo in the center of your prepared vase, on top of the base layer. While holding the bamboo, fill the vase with rocks/marbles/gravel around the stalks of bamboo to fill the vase. Once your bamboo and rocks are in place, add water just to the top of the rocks.

Bamboo Care

Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena Sanderia) thrive in indirect sunlight. Full sun will cause the leaves to turn yellow. We recommend watering your lucky bamboo arrangement with filtered or bottled water. Water level should cover the top of the rocks. However, lucky bamboo will thrive in vases without rocks as well. For green stalks, we recommend fertilizing your lucky bamboo with liquid fertilizer.
