Green Wedding Tips- Potted Centerpieces
How gorgeous would this be as a centerpiece? I know that most people think of cut flowers when they think of centerpieces or maybe of candles but why not a gorgeous potted plant that can continue to grow long after the wedding vows have been spoken. Instead of shining for a day it can be a constant reminder to you or your guests of the power of love.
My fiance and I are on a budget and when we first started looking at traditional centerpieces they were just too expensive. Our first idea to save money was lollipop centerpieces.
How cool would a centerpiece of these be? We found a seller on Etsy, Sweet Lollipop Shop, that does custom homemade lollipops and she is going to make 17 lollipop centerpieces for us. If you are looking for a creative centerpiece of favor you definitely need to check her out!
Of course now that I have that all lined up I thought of any even better idea. I love sunflowers and my fiance and I started doing some container gardening this year. We decided to plant sunflowers in the pots that we had already purchased and painted chocolate brown. Hopefully they will be gorgeous and blooming in time for the wedding. If they are then we will use the lollipops as favors and if not we will stick with our original idea.
If you don’t like azaleas how about orchids?
Or gerber daisies?
Or perhaps miniature roses?
If you don’t like any of these take a trip to your local nursery and see what they have. There are endless varieties of flowers, plants, and herbs that you could use that would be easier on your wallet and easier on the earth.
