For your bridal shower party favors or your next engagement party favors, check out your garden center before the flower shop. Living plants can often be cheaper in the long run. And check this out - no last minute running around, you can pick them up a few days before the party, and they can double as your party favor. The possibilities for enhancing your parties theme with live plants is endless.
Orchids in pots make excellent party centerpieces that guests will be thrilled with as favors and they seem to come down in price every year. Just last week I saw beautiful orchids at Home Depot for $9.99! And these were already in terracota pots. With florists charging upwards of $50 per centerpiece, if you see a deal like this don't pass it by. Alternate large, identical (and I don't say identical for nothing - orchids are reproduced through cloning!) orchids with candles down the center of a table, or group different sizes, shapes and colors as a living party centerpiece.
