I think it’s a great idea!  Are you looking to have 1 larger potted plant per table or several smaller potted plants?  Having smaller potted plants in multiple size pots might be nice (maybe 1 pot per guest?)  Obviously you have to know your guests though – will most of them want to take a plant home?

It’s a great idea. One of the bees here is using orchids from Lowe’s. Some of them are already in beautiful pots and don’t need anything else.

You can also use smaller plants in individual pots and cluster them together. This is known as a breakaway centerpiece.

You have lots of time to decide. Make sure you keep a file of ideas that you like, and if it’s anything you light need to track down later, make sure you note the source of the pic.

The advantage of narrowing down your choice early, is that you can watch for and take advanatge of sales.

potted plants are a great idea! I think you’re right about doing like 5 per table (not every guest will need a “favor”) Make sure you put a note on the table that let’s them know they can take them home.

 my suggestion, buy super cheap clay pots and spray paint them black and silver, then plant them with bright pink flowers. (Make sure you also buy a spray sealer for the pots or when you water them the paint might run. Spray the inside as well as the outside) You can pick up those supplies for dirt cheap at WalMart or Lowes or Home Depot or any garden or craft store, especially in the spring.

If you want, buy different size pots to create some more visual interest. Can’t find bright pink flowers you like? Spray paint the pots pink, black and silver, then put white flowers in them!

I was thinking about this too. My style is going to be more formal would this still work?
