Ok so I’m having a hard time explaining my ideas to my mother… does anyone have any pictures of living floral centerpieces (potted plants and such) that I could show her. I haven’t found anything that meets her "wow" criteria.

Hm…What’s your setting like? Do you want funky, rustic, more traditional?… I’ve seen some really pretty centerpieces with simple potted orchids – elegant with a nice pop of color. I’ve also seen some more rustic-looking ones with herbs or flowers in low pots:

You might also hop on ftd.com, 1800flowers.com, etc., and look at some of their plant options just to see what certain plants look like in bloom.

I did that! i bought these awesome ceramic urns from http://www.jamaligarden.com and then had my florist buy potted cylamen (winter plant for my winter wedding!) and plant them in the urns. We had two per long table and then a row of votives. If you can find really nice urns/plant holders it’ll make all the difference. i also went home a week after the wedding and found my plant alive and well in my parents kitchen…and sprouting new buds too! Also, it might help to see how your reception hall decorates at your time of the year. I knew my reception hall used a lot of cyclamen as part of their general decor during the winters, so I chose the same so that it matched. Sorry, i don’t have my pro pics yet…
