I like your alternaitve idea with the pots.. It will make the pots stick out more on a more neutral (white/ivory) table cover.

@hyperJulie:  I think the idea of using compostable plates is very much in line with a modern wedding, so no worries there. Choose a square shape.


You can keep the modern theme intact by choosing your shapes carefully. A square vase or cachepot for a potted plant has more modern lines than a round flower pot. If you use a round pot, stick to simple clean lines, not the traditional clay pot shape.

Given the difficulty of finding teal flowers, I think white flowers are perfect.

From previous posts, other bees have found potted orchids at a very reasonable price at Lowe’s.

I would use a black or teal pot but stay away from ribbon- not a modern look. One advantage of using black or teal pots, is that you can find various things at thrift or dollar stores and spray paint them all the same color.

Instead of using traditional votives, you could do something like this.

Moss & candle centerpieces

Buy plain little bowls at the Dollar store or in an oriental shop. You could use something black or teal rather than the moss. If you prefer the look of a square container, you could get the little square dishes for soy sauce you see at sushi places. Use some putty to adhere the candle to the plate. Surround with river rock, not teal glass beads.

You can get your touch of teal with teal napkins. Use a modern fold for the napkins.
