Potted Place Card

Martha Stewart Weddings, 1999

Both place card and favor, these tiny terra-cotta pots with a dome of velvety moss are spare yet elegant against a pristine white table -- perfect for a simple wedding.

To make one, place a small piece of crock in a 2-inch-diameter terra-cotta pot, fill with potting soil, and top with a mound of moss. Insert a birch twig into the center of the mound. To secure a name card to the twig, slip the card behind a twig node, or make a horizontal slit in the twig with a utility knife, and slide in the bottom edge of the card.

Moss can be purchased at Moss Acres.
