herbs used as a diy wedding centerpiece It would make a perfect wedding centerpiece for an outdoor wedding or a wedding with a green wedding theme. I can just see these herb centerpieces running down the middle of long wooden tables set in a garden or marquee. It’s also perfect for a green wedding as the guests can take the herb plants home at the end of the evening to eat or plant in their own gardens.
different herbs ready for planting into a wedding centerpiece  What you will need:

  • A set of boxes, you could make your own, decorating them with pretty paper to match your wedding theme. I’ve also seen herb plants placed in decorative food cans, baskets and small garden troughs, which all make great wedding centerpieces.
  • Herb plants. I simply bought mine from a local supermarket. But you could even grow your own from seed if you are organised enough.

I’ve seen similar designs made out of enamel metal that people use on their kitchen windowsills. You can choose containers that fit with your wedding color theme.
