Succulents are particularly well suited for picnics and outdoor weddings but use them indoors as well. They won't dry out and work well with 'green themes.' Use them for favors, place cards, menus, centerpieces, or for bouquets.

Easy and Inexpensive Centerpieces You Can DIY

If you're interested in doing your own centerpieces, just purchase these square glass vases either with or without monograms, I've seen them for less than $4 and the monogrammed vases are three for $29.  Just pick a variety of colored roses, some glass marbles, cut roses to fit and go!  Use five roses per vase.
