When I have guests over, even if it’s just a few close friends, I like to make the evening special and personalized. It’s the little embellishments in our lives that make the best memories. When the weather gets nice and my garden is in bloom, I set the table with fresh cut flowers. You can bring little colorful blossoms onto your table with these cute flowerpot placeholders.
- 1.25” Terracotta flowerpot
- Moss or Oasis foam
- Fresh flowers or millinery flowers on wire
- Printed photos of flowers
- Tiny clothespin
- Pinking Shears
Fill your terracotta pot with a good pinch of moss if you are using millinery flowers. Add a little Oasis foam soaked in water at the bottom of your pot if you are using fresh flowers, then put moss on top.
Arrange the flowers in the pot.
Cut out a coordinating 1.25” square photo of a flower with pinking shears. You can either print out and glue your guest’s name to the top of the flower photo or write it directly onto the image by hand. Tuck this piece of paper into the side of the terracotta pot.
Cut out another tiny half-inch floral photo and clip it to the stem or petal with the clothespin for extra charm and color.
When you’ve finished a flowerpot for each guest, set it down at their place on the table. They make perfect party favors, too. Each one can sit on your guest’s windowsill or desk and remind them of your fun evening together. You could even paint your guest’s name onto the terracotta pot itself. There are numerous ways to adapt this concept to your specific need, so have fun making each one special!
