I was thinking about asking this same question the other week myself. Thank you for asking, I will be waiting for replies too. I was thinking if I did do it, though, I would be getting some pretty pots to put them in for the tables.

A friend of mine did this!

She actually warned me that some florist won’t even entertain the idea, but she found one who was all over it.  She used herbs…I’m going to include succulents, I think. 


I’ve been collecting silver bowls to use (mostly old trophies found at antique stores). 


I’m hoping for something like the first two images here:

We’re going to get some mums from a garden centre to use as our centrepieces. We will be using simple brown ceramic pots to put them in. But our venue & theme is nature/outdoorsy so it’ll work!

I do love the idea of live plants as centrepieces for any venue! And it’s totally a nice favour for people at the end of the night.

I’m doing potted flowers for centerpieces.  I don’t like the idea of cutting flowers just for an event (poor flowers!), and at least this way, they can keep on living!

#1 will be perfect! Will they still be available at that price when you need them?

Potted plants are great for centerpeices!!  They are not only cost effective and eco-friendly but can pull double duty as a take homw gift for mothers, aunts and guests that helped with your wedding planning.  Make sure to talk with the garden specialist about the plant availability.  Orchids can be tempremental and are not always in season but a pro can answer these questions or suggest simillar plants that will be inb season.  Great idea!!

@Pink Lady Krista: I’ve seen them in Lowes year round.  For YEARS.  Everytime we’d go to lowes, I’d hit the garden center while my parents did their shopping.  Then, with my son and then my daughter, I’d ALWAYS take them to the flowers no matter WHAT!  (what? you gotta teach ’em early to stop and smell the roses! LOL!)


I LOVE the idea of plants for centerpieces!  They don’t die two days later like cut flowers do 😉
