mrswho:  What about something like this? An homage to your scientific bend, if you will.

Flowers can be brought to the venue from your local supermarket. No talent for flower arranging needed.

Another option for an historical building would be breakaway centerpieces. You group small containers of some sort and at the end of the evening everyone at the table takes one home.

You can get tiny flowering plants at the nursery in June for next to nothing. Place them in small clay pots that you have spray painted (or not).

I love the idea of doing small potted plants!  That would be something that people are more inclined to take home, too.  If you’re into that kind of thing, you could even do some succulants or cactuses so your less-green-thumbed guests will take something, too.

What about a mixture of glassware, china and books? Stuff that people will have in their homes already, and then they could double as favours. Something like this?

Also, we’re using wildflowers for the centerpieces to save money, and they look really sweet and are available all year round so that could be something to consider?

mrswho:  I posted about mine on another thread yesterday – my criteria were identical to yours! We did succulent centrepieces in logs from our garden with the idea that we would burn them afterwards if no-one took them. Not a worry, our guests were practically fighting over them!
