i don’t get it…what are the pictures of? It’s hard to tell…are they flowers inside vases filled with water?

Oh I love these-make awesome gifts! 

I’d suggest ordering a few trials before deciding to go full force with these.  As an accent I think they’d be beautiful and unique!  But, from my experience, they’re rather small to be much of a focal point.  Also make sure the tea doesn’t change the water all kinds of funky colors after a few hours.  They’d be beautiful on small cocktail tables with little tea lights all around!

I saw these for the first time last week and was debating whether or not I’d want to try them. If you do have them, set it up so your guests can poor the hot water (or have a friend act as waiter and pour). Watching the thing bloom is better than sitting down to it already finished.

If you’re having an evening reception, you can get LED lights and underlight them…that would be cool. My centerpieces were tall branchy things with tealights on them and they were underlit and looked awesome

Use a glass teapot as the centerpiece holder, and then it can be taken away by one lucky person!  I’ve seen (at Papyrus, and other places) the whole set — two or three blooming tea flowers plus the little glass teapot.  (But it is pretty little…)  I think it would be cute!  But AOEBuckeye mentioned, teas do tend to change color once they’ve brewed, so you’ll have to watch that.  They might be amber/dark amber by the time the wedding is over…
