2. Cacti Center Pieces

While we love the uniqueness cacti bring to the table, (no pun intended) it’s important to remember to take precaution where you decide place them; considering the fact that they might prick a guest if they are set too close to their table setting! However, the good news is that there are other plants in the cacti family that don’t have thorns. Such as the, Thornless Prickly Pear. This plant is just as cute and 100% safe to touch! The green and unique look of these plants can be combined perfectly with any other type of flower and color, including tableware. If you find yourself bored with the usual hues of olive green seen at weddings, then this fresh spin on green décor would be a great alternative for you.
