I’m planning to grow 12 wheatgrass centerpieces for our reception and hope to add spray roses, gerbera daisies and other flowers to make it look like a small garden on each table.
Just wondering if any of you in the hive have done this and how easy it was. I have grand dreams but I know myself and if things get too complicated as we get close to the wedding, I may just go with vases of flowers.
Any pictures of your successful centerpieces would be MUCH appreciated!

Lollipop gave away wheatgrass as a favor at her wedding… and she provided some helpful tips for others wanting to grow grass as well!

I wanted to see how your wheatgrass was going. I too have decided to use wheatgrass as my center pieces. Right now I am growing the grass in plastic trays and I will add grebers to them when we get to the reception. I wanted to know what you are putting the grass in?
I have seen pails, glass vases, or just open with some ribon tied around. What are you doing.

Oh yes, yes, yes! We did this and it was wonderful! We only did long window boxes along our buffet tables but it was so easy (trust me, if I can do it ANYONE can do it!) Here’s where we ordered the kit from
We got enough for the two large window boxes (two trays each) and a practice tray out of this one starter kit. $33 isn’t bad! And here’s how it came out. My fiance made the window boxes that we put them in.

Has anyone found rectangular clear glass troughs or vases to put wheatgrass in? Something in the shape of bonniebelle’s window boxes, but in glass.
Bonniebell your wheatgrass looks great btw!

I am also growing my own wheatgrass centerpieces. Will do a test run this month. This photo was my inspiration for the project: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/1263473746/

I’m doing wheatgrass as well for my rehearsal dinner.
Anyone know where I can find shallow round or square containers for this? Thanks!

I found square glass vases in the 6×6 or 8×8 depending on what you are looking for at Flowersandsupplies.com. I think they were reasonably priced. I am using the wheatgrass for the place cards as well. I will have a tray or two of the grass and put the place cards in the grass as well to kinda tie it all together. See Below… I may use smaller sticks though.

Hi Ladies! I’m so glad to hear from all you! We are planning to use 20 inch trays from Joann Fabrics to grow the wheatgrass in (I wish I could find a picture for you all!) I’m using the picture below as inspiration and hope my turns out just like this:
Do you suggest starting the growing process about 10 out? We ordered the wheatgrass from wheatgrasskits.com and can’t wait to get started!

I would love an update from you! We are also planning to do wheatgrass as our centepieces. I’m a little nervous since we are in MN and our wedding is in May 2010. I’ve heard it only takes about 10 days to grow, but with cooler weather a possibility in the spring I’m trying not to freak out :-). I have 21 planters I have to grow… ANY advice would be greatly appreciated!
