I think it sounds like a good idea.

Or you could pot them in cheap flower pots, like $1.50 each at Michael’s, and then do the ribbon.

Or a single band of ribbon that goes around the top.

I like your 3rd idea the best out of the 3… you can also try to play around with paints if 3 doesn’t work out. Maybe paint the pots with acyrlic paints that they sell at joanns or the craft store. Another option would be getting the terra cotta pots and replanting the pots in that and going with your ribbion/lace and ribbon or even acrylic paint idea. The terra cotta pots aren’t too expenive maybe like $1 each if you get the small kind plus the price of a bag of dirt re repotting– I’m not too sure what your budget is or how many flowers you have. If you repot the flowers though I think they may last longer too..

I did potted herbs as our centerpieces and I used galvanized metla pots from Ikea.  They were super inexpensive and they looked awesome!

I know that this doesn’t match your colors, but green and purple go great together!  I love this idea and I bet it would work on pots rather than cans also!

I have been trying to post this for about 15 minutes, but my submit button disappeared?!  Did that happen to anyone else?


You could look for blue ceramic pots to put the plastic pots in.  No work just slide them in!

You could also spray clear vases white and blue (where you spray the inside) and put the small pots into them.

For cheaper options, you could wrap them in tissue paper, you could do several shades of blue, or blue and white all layered together.

You could get the exact same pots (cheap plastic ones) spray them to match your colors and slide the others inside.

I think that fabric is a wonderful idea too.  You could always wrap with white and then add the ribbon over it.

@Goldilocks1107: this might be too much purple if you are trying to stay away from the purples…

 mkat88: I love your galvanized pots sooo elegant! it is true too… you don’t need to repot just stick the orginial pot and plant right into the new pot… didn’t think of this.


I hope this helps goldilocks1107! 🙂
