i thought about it, and kind of wish i am because it’s so much easier to prepare and then you get to keep them after for a lot longer. but we are going with something else instead. still, i think it looks really cute!

I have seen some really cool potted centerpieces – my FAVE is one a gal did in California using hen and chicks and other various succulents. Succulents are a SUPER good idea for potted centerpiece brides because they don’t take much water (you don’t really even need to water them but once a week or so…which means you can do them WAY in advance!). They also don’t require too much soil or chemical nutrients. Succulents can be planted in rocks, bark, or dirt.

Check out my FAVE succulent wedding –

We did orchids and they came out pretty nice!  If someone can tell me how to post a pic that is saved on my computer I can show you.

I think they’re adorable!  At one of my showers there were three potted violets on each table in these adorable round yellow, red and green pots.  I LOVED them!

I’m thinking of doing potted ferns, then just adding some cut flowers in for color..not sure how that’s going to work though just yet.

That would be so nice!  Aren’t orchids expensive though?  I think centerpieces are one of the easiest DIY project.  There are so many ways to make a beautiful one and still save some $$$.

I am not sure what your budget is, but they were $9 a piece.  The pots were $5 -$10 depending on the size.  I think the one in the pic was a smaller one in the $5 range.  All the orchids were given away at the end of the night to our guests, and I think they really liked them.

I think the potted orchids are really nice!  I’ve seen some pretty big ones at Trader Joe’s in a lot of very pretty colors under $30, so it’s not that bad.  I think if you can find some kind of wholesale orchid seller you could probably find a good deal.
