My dad has had a passion for gardening his entire life, and his favorite plant to work with is the cactus. He’s created many grafted cactus arrangements in the past, and I recently realized that they’d make beautiful wedding centerpieces. Not only do they come in many vibrant colors and forms, but they’re affordable and accessible too. You can usually find these small cactus plants at your local Home Depot for around $2 each.
The cactus centerpiece is something that I would even attempt to diy, since you can take one type of cactus arranged in a couple of straight rows together, and it’d look great. Plus it’s almost impossible to kill a cactus.
Here are some cactus pictures for inspiration.

as well as cactus plant placecards and favors.
There are so many beautiful varieties of cacti and succulents – many are even shaped exactly like flowers. They’re definitely a unique and interesting alternative to the traditional flower centerpiece.
