@sealevels: haha then it might be best to keep them safe =) If you just got them from the hardware store it would still avoid cut flowers, and you could even send them with people as favors to spread your love of gardening to friends and family

I like them.  You have time to develop and tweak some things, but love the price of the plants πŸ˜€

I think it could be really pretty or.lame depending on how you do it. My sister had plants for her centerpieces but it wasn’t just chilling in a pot on the table so it looked pretty.

Are you picturing something like this?

(Stolen from the $20 centerpiece thread)

I wish I had done something like this. Sigh. Forget dress regret – what about decor regret? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I tihnk you need something colorful to break up the green.  I know next to nothing about plants, so if they bloom with colorful blossoms, I take that back!

@sealevels:  Yes, that sounds beautiful, with the layering, different greenery and flowering plants. Lovely!  What’s nice is if you’re not set on one particular plant being in the mix you can use whatever is growing or blooming best near your wedding!

This is making me want to garden! πŸ™‚

This may sound odd, but I like the metal loops, gives them height. Maybe you can recreate it with leaves? and a candle in a hanging votive holder….IDK, I think if you have a large group of them in differing heights, not just sitting on the table, it’lll look awesome.

I love this idea!!! It gives your wedding soe  personality. And I would definately include little signs of something in the program that explains that you grew the all!

Love the idea — especially naming the tables after kinds of plants and having a card with information about them. 

I think it will be especially charming in an outdoor/garden setting in April.  It might be nice to toss in some bulb flowers for spring.
