On the Table: Planter Centerpieces

Winter weddings are a great source of inspiration for holiday tablescapes. Instead of opting for floral arrangements, consider the more sustainable option of planted centerpieces. The best part: after the event you're left with a living plant or planter that can be used indoors or out.

Succulents are a popular choice because they are easy to plant, grow and maintain. The addition of mosses and other greenery makes for a lovely arrangement. The other half of the equation is the growing container. This roundup focuses on a range of rustic, wooden crates and boxes for growing your plants. It's a great way to be green if you're able to use found or re-purposed materials.
