i love the herb centerpiece idea and almost did this! what about putting them in black ceramic pots? you could either replant them or just find a ceramic pot that is just a little bit bigger than the pot they come in and cover them that way.

Hmm, what is your theme?

Could you wrap them in some sort of fabric and tie some rafia twine around it or could you spray paint the pots?

You could also put the little pots inside bigger ones like these cute metal ones,  that could get expensive though.

Are they in terra cotta pots? Why not just paint them? I actually like the look of the plain pots, but painting them is easy.

Yay!  We did this (with terra cotta pots, arranged in copper trays) and it was a huge hit and looked beautiful!

I would recommend looking in IKEA for cheap black ceramic or metal pots — I am pretty sure they stock cute ones for $0.50 each or so.  You could also try jamaligarden.com — I bought our copper trays from there and they were perfect.

If you are doing a black table cloth you might want to add the silver metal containers or other color to lighten the table and let the centerpieces pop.  I’m afraid the black pots and green herbs might get lost in the big picture of your table

If you want to change the colour, the easier would be spraying them.

You could even spray them with chalkboard paint and write the table number on them that way! Just an idea…..

yup, I was going to say chalkboard paint or simple black spray paint.  They may fade into your tablecloth though :-/
