Has anyone used live potted plants as table centerpieces? If so, could you post pictures? Someone suggested this to me recently, but I’ve never seen it done before. I’m trying to picture how it would look. I love orchids, so maybe doing potted orchids that people could take home afterwards would work. I’d love to see any pictures 🙂 Thanks so much!

I LOVE this idea. I think it is so wonderful- plus, your guests will have something from your wedding that will live on, that will continue to bloom and grow- I think it is lovely!
I was going to do this for my wedding, but my ideas slowly took a different turn, in order to minimize. (Now I am using mainly candles and candelabras.)
You could have them in matching pots- that would be perfect. Good luck!

I don’t have photos, but I went to one where teh centerpieces were all potted plants in cute little customized planters. There was some sort of game (only took 2-3 min…something about people dancing around the table I think?) to determine who “won” the plant at each table and could take it home at the end of the night. I think it’s a great “green” option if you don’t want to give up fresh flowers.

I think potted plants are a great cneterpiece idea. They are eco-friendly (and cost friendly) compared to to cut flowers. You can also work on them ahead of time!

@jordynrose, What’s the source for photo 4? The really colorful one? I REALLY like that one.
I think I would do this, and under each pot have different criteria
- The couple who have been married the longest/shortest.
- Person with the longest/shortest last name.
- Youngest/oldest person.
- Tallest/shortest person

I def thought about doing this!
Other options include potted herbs or succulents. To save $$ if you have time buy just the seeds and cheap pots from Dollar Store!

If we were having a wedding in our home town I would have definitely done this. We love plants and gardening so it would have worked out well.

I’m seriously considering doing dwarf evergreen trees as part of my centerpiece:

Oh my goodness, you ladies are AMAZING! I just got back to the boards after a busy day and found so much great inspiration put together by you all! Thanks so so much! I also love succulents and think they’d be a great idea! I really like the dwarf evergreen and apple centerpiece too! And the ones with the colorful little pots! And the idea of live herbs! So many options! Thanks again all!!!

I am hoping to do wheatgrass with some flowers on top. I know that wheatgrass is suuuuuper easy to grow and I figure it will be easier than growing all the flowers.I plan to order my flowers from a wholesaler and just loosely place them on top of the wheatgrass. Here’s the inspiration for what i am doing.
