Creating A DIY Herb Centerpiece

If you're looking for a simple, eco-friendly centerpiece idea for your wedding or bridal shower, look no further than your garden or window sill.

Now, I don't claim to have a green thumb by any means- in fact, only a select few plants and flowers are resilient enough to withstand life with me. But when it comes to these herb centerpiece ideas, anyone can do it!

Some other bonuses to creating herb centerpieces? You can enjoy them while you're growing your centerpiece! Plant your herbs in the spring (I just planted mine this last weekend) , and you'll be able to enjoy them all summer long with your meals. You can also try this idea- plant your herbs in a decorative planter and place on your deck, patio, or in your back yard. Not only do you have a unique garden to look at, you'll have herbs at your fingertips for summer meals to boot:

Basil is especially resilient and hardy, and is actually a great pick if you're having an outdoor wedding, as basil is a natural bug and fly deterrent (they don't like the odor)! Other varieties that would work well are mint, peppermint, and lavender, just to name a few.

Once you've grown the amount of herbs you need, cut and place them in vessels such as bud vases, paint cans with ribbon, or even mix them in with cut flowers for a gorgeous look.

Happy Planning!
