You can tune in on Thursday to see this amazing hanging centerpiece in all of it’s glory, but if you want a sneak peak now I couldn’t think of any other amazing way to use plants than a giant hanging chandelier centerpiece. It makes for a great backdrop for photos, and gives your guests a lush delight when they enter your event.

Say Thank You With Them
There’s a reason some people at wedding give plants as gifts and that is to “keep their love growing” long after the event. Giving someone a plant as a thank you gift for attend your event is an excellent keepsake that people will treasure forever – even if they end up killing the plant!
Versatile pots and hard to kill plants like succulents make for great gift giving presents, and the options for personalisation are varied. You can also add tags, chalkboards, numbers, cards or any other manner of giftware to express your gratitude, and a variation of pots will give each guest their own unique favour.

A Living Table Runner
A simple one-plant centerpiece is so last season!
2016 and 2017 lives on with a living table runner of plants that spreads across the center of the table and moves towards the ground, utilising long stems and vines in the process.
You can use any types of plants or flowers you would like by piling them on top of larger, green flat leaves and fronds, and add accessories like blooms, fruit and cheeses, wooden sticks and bark, candles and any thing else to your party theme. The messier the better!

Use Them As Place Holders
You can use practically anything as a place holder – something to designate where your guests are going to sit – but nothing adds extra elegance quite like using a collection of leaves, herbs or your favourite plants to jazz up your plate. Tying your plants into a wreath or a bouquet will only add to the opulence, so get something that will match your theme and get laying!
