How to build a herb wall for your patio or balcony
Many times, choices about wedding planning lean mostly on the brides preferences. So in an effort to incorporate my future husbands love of the outdoors into our wedding, we chose to have fishing theme hinted in the decor. As such, for our guests to find their table assignments, we had them go "table fishing".
As I made this board, nearly a year ago, I wanted a budget friendly option so used the friendly help of Home Depot to cut some fence pieces and show me where on earth to find pipe clamps (I think I walked the aisles for 10 minutes).
With some nails and stainer (warning the "Honey" color is much darker than the golden color I was expecting, but it still turned out beautifully) in hand, I drove over to Michaels to get some $2.00 mini Mason Jars. That's it! I already had leftover white paint from the Dresser Makeover so with just about $70 worth of supplies I was ready.
The sign was a huge success at the wedding and everyone enjoyed fishing for their nametags. Post wedding, the sign was put in storage and about a year later, when I finally had picked out my pot for the balcony, I brought it back out and re-installed the mason jars.
With another stop at the Home Depot gardening section, I picked out some mint, cilantro, thai basil, and curly parsley. The last one was supposed to be rosemary, however, once Brad saw all the other options there, he campaigned for some hot banana peppers so we added those in.
I think picked out some flowers that do well in direct sunlight and partial shade. I was so excited to plant, that even in the 6pm winter (I now San Diego winters are still warm, but it was a bit chilly) darkness, I went and made my new plants feel at home.
I'm so excited about how it all turned out. Not only was I able to re-use supplies from the wedding decor, I also got to add a bit of greenery and freshness to the balcony. Just goes to show that you don't have to have a big yard to put your green thumb to use. With a few tools and supplies you can create your very own modern farm to table herbs while adding unique decor to your space.
Now off to enjoy a Friday mojito with some fresh mint :-)
