Actually that is a really good idea if you think about it.  It took a minute to sink in, but cute idea.

That might be good for some, but Jello creeps me out…. I know, I am weirdUndecided

I guess that is just like that weird floral gel, only this is probably cheaper, smells better and if one of the kids at the wedding decides to eat the centerpiece, it won’t hurt them :).

@jo.lee: You could use unflavored gelatin if you were worried about the smell, with food coloring for color.

I wonder how far ahead you could make these (and how much fridge space you would need to store them!)

That’s a pretty cool idea!  I don’t think jello itself would be very practical for anything other than a smaller dinner party though.  As a centerpiece for a reception, jello will probably start to liquefy pretty quickly and all the flowers will eventually sink to the bottom.

Although something like agar-agar might work since it doesn’t need refrigeration to set and you have the option of not adding sugar so it shouldn’t attract every fly and ant in a mile radius.

@ddw: Sorry, I just found this thread again. I actually meant that the jello would smell really good and the floral stuff wouldn’t smell at all :).

That’s so interesting and fun! As long as there was a place to store the jello cold until reception. Although would it start melting a few hours in and start to look weird? (i.e. flowers sinking…) Very fun though!

@Linz1231: Is it bad I REALLY want to have Jello centerpieces with random office instruments in them now?
