Coffee Mug Herb Garden

It’s finally cooling off and I decided to spend an afternoon planting some mums and making Coffee Mug Herb Planters. Well, I’m not really sure if I should use the word “making” but I did transplant the herbs into coffee mugs and they’re still alive after a few days so I call that a huge success.


We have friends who just bought their dream home and I wanted to take them a little housewarming gift.  I originally wanted to fill tea cups with herbs but I couldn’t find any cute tea cups so I picked up these fun coffee mugs and I actually like them better.  Their house is new and modern so these mugs will look great in their kitchen or outside on their screened-in porch.  They could even plant the herbs and use the coffee mugs.  Either way, I think they turned out cute.  The hardest part was picking out the herbs to use.  I originally wanted basil but I couldn’t find any so I chose mint, parsley, and rosemary.


Oh man – I think I need to keep one for myself.  Aren’t they cute? I’m pretty sure you don’t even need a green thumb to keep these bad boys alive.

Materials needed:

  • coffee mugs
  • herbs
  • potting soil


  • Fill coffee cups with herbs and potting soil.

It doesn’t get any easier than that!  Next, I needed to make some cute herb markers.  Luckily you can smell the mint and rosemary so I don’t need markers right away.

I did learn one thing from this fun gift idea – gardening is pretty refreshing.  It was so nice to be outside enjoying the fresh air.  I had a glass of Snapple® Peach Tea in one hand and a handful of dirt in the other.  Easton was crawling around on the deck playing with his toys.  I had the music blaring while I got my gardening on.  I’m all about the gardening therapy.


Now it’s time to sit back and take a flavorful break with Snapple while I admire my pretty Coffee Mug Herb Planters before I take them to my friend.  I think I need to make a cute succulent coffee mug garden next.


Oh, and guess what?  I’ve got a fun tip for you.  Instead of ice, use frozen peaches to keep your peach tea cool.  We can’t have watered down Snapple Tea now, can we?!

Head to Walmart and find 64 Oz. Snapple products on Rollback from $1.98 to $1.50.  This rollback price is only available at Walmart from 8/31-11/30.


How do you like to take flavorful breaks with Snapple?
