Potted Centerpieces


I've been thinking a lot about elements of a wedding that can be reduced, reused, or recycled.

I saw this idea in a wedding featured by Snippet & Ink (the same wedding that had the fresh lemonade during the ceremony): live herb centerpieces.

The couple planted live herbs in pots and used them to distinguish the tables from each other. I just love the idea of "live centerpieces." You could do the same with flowers.

Does anyone have pictures of this being done in a different way?

Taking a spin off of this, I am doing centerpieces with fresh herbs like lavender, lemongrass, and chamomile. Mixed in with wheatgrass pieces, it's bound to be refreshing and very "springy", yet totally reusable when I take everything home as decor!

we went even simpler...we just bought pots of beautiful, green, overflowing moss & used them as the centerpieces. what people didn't take home, we just planted in our garden (where the wedding was)! it was lovely and simple & green.

@ Christina: Cool idea. Plus, it constantly reminds you of your wedding memories!

I believe that Myra Kim of twigs&honey had different types of grasses, but I could be wrong.

I'd really love to use this idea but its turning out to be surprisingly expensive since we have a lot of small tables. I would try to plant them from seed myself but would worry they wouldn't grow or would still be puny by the time the wedding comes around. I think if I can find some herbs on sale and manage to acquire pots for free that I still may go this route.
