On Monday, I showed you how to create these cool painted geometric flower pots — today I’m showing you how to create a budget tablescape from them! Potted plants make ideal centerpieces because they can be gifted to guests afterward, they’ll last way longer than cut flower centerpieces and you can pick less expensive plants which will make a big impact on your bottom line.
For this centerpiece, you’ll need your own painted pots (see the DIY tutorial here) plus some fun plants to fill them. I chose heather, a small shrub, and Corsican Mint, which is a ground cover plant that offers a nice punch of green. These are both very affordable plants (about $5 for the heather shrub, and $2 for the mint). Pair with a pop of color in the napkins you choose and a fun table number and you’ll have a winning centerpiece.
