I live in San Diego and have searched high and low to find pots to use for centerpieces at the wedding. I have been to Home Depot, Lowe’s, Pier One, World Market, Home Goods, and various nurseries in search of these pots.
I am looking for something that sits low, almost bowl shaped and has a rustic look to it. Hopefully something that measures at least 12 inches across, if not bigger. My plan is to fill these with succulents and flowers. We’ll find one that we like, and there will only be 1 of them…unfortunately, we need 8!
Does anyone have any suggestions on where else to look?

Do you have Garden Ridge near you? That would be a good place to check out.

Target carries Smith and Hawken planters that might work for you.
Here’s a link to a picture-not necessarily at Target but made by Smith and Hawken.
You could also use terra cotta saucers if that would work for the look you want.
Try Exotic Gardens Succulent Nursery 2212 El Cajon Blvd. San Diego 619) 497-0860
they might have some suggestions for you.

IKEA also has pots, and I think they may even have small succulents and you know it will be cheap!

I got my centerpiece planters at Target. 13 of them, and in the clearance aisle, too. Unfortunately, I got the last ones in the state. We’ll actually need more like 15-17, but I figure I can go with a different style for the VIP tables.

I got some really cute pots for our centerpieces at IKEA! I spray painted them to look more like what I wanted (the pic is pre-paint), but at $2.50 apiece they were too good to pass up! They had a lot of choices too.

To get mine, I had to scavenge several Lowes (to get the right number) and spray paint. Ultimately I found something really similar at Big Lots too.
