Thinking of non-floral table decorations and centerpieces that still have the floral vibe? Why not consider succulents? They’re fresh and green, and many varieties have the appearance of petals forming flowers. Huge pluses, too, are their affordable cost in comparison to traditional wedding blooms, and their hardiness that allows you to purchase and arrange them some time ahead of the Big Day. And of course, if you’ll be having a Western, country or rustic theme, succulents bring in the perfect organic look with a modern slant. Need some creative ideas? Read on!
Simple Succulents Make Pretty Table Decor and Favors
1 - Trust Creative Jewish Mom to come up with a centerpiece full of visual interest, “something a little crafty and eclectic” as she describes it! Note the variety of containers used, the different types of succulents (one looking like Queen Anne’s lace), the jute twine and metallic gold ties, even a couple of tiny seashells as accents. Casual and so creative!
2 - Personalized potted succulents, like these ones DIYed (with a tutorial) by Weddings by Lilly, can serve double duty as instant guest keepsakes. Choose little containers and gift tags to suit your theme and color motif. Then, simply group these gifts at the center of each table for guests to find the one made just for them!
3 - Combine the charm of a simple tin bucket with the popularity of chalkboard decor at weddings today, and you have this appealing country-style table number holder! Passion for Flowers shares several fab ideas for crafting your own centerpieces and even seating markers using succulents. Check out their post!
4 - In addition to the main table centerpiece (or in place of one, if you’re on a tight budget), how cute would single-succulent place card holders be?! This cool example we found on Me and You Lookbook is clearly a breeze to make. You can easily switch containers to go from a modern to a vintage look, plus how thrilled would guests be to have these as favors!
