As we settle into summer, I'm so excited to see all of my potted herbs looking more and more beautiful with each day of warm sunshine. Herbs are one of my favorite materials to use in floral arrangements and bouquets. They add texture and fragrance to any collection of blooms, and there are so many to choose from! Some of my loves include rosemary, lemon verbena, purple basil, and mint. If your florist doesn't have access to cut bundles of fresh herbs, try your local farmers market or garden center for mature plants that can be cut back or trimmed.
Potted herbs are a perfect solution for an earth-friendly (and budget-conscious) centerpiece idea. And at the end of the evening, your guests will love taking them home as favors.
