Our photo shows you all you’ll need at a glance: a few attractive miniature succulents, plus a paint marker. In our example we used the fine edding 780 gloss paint marker in white (colour code 049).
Before you use a gloss paint marker, it needs to be activated as follows: Shake the marker vigorously with the cap still on. Remove the cap, place the nib on absorbent paper and pump it up and down a few times until ink appears in the nib. Now you’re ready to get started. Always store the marker horizontally after use.
Succulents can be used as place cards by marking the leaves either with the names of the guests or a nice sentiment such as “Enjoy your meal!” or “Bon appétit!”. Take care not to press too hard, so as not to damage the leaves.
The idea is that every guest receives a miniature plant – a unique surprise they are sure to appreciate.
