A non-traditional centerpiece of air plants pair seamlessly with a casual gathering of drinks and a cheeseboard on your kitchen counter or island. They will elevate your hosting cred because of how effortlessly they come together. All you have to do is pull together the air plants that are around your house and restyle them to create a complimentary arrangement. Below is our ideal example featuring our favorite large Xerographica, Sparkler and a blooming Baileyi air plant we found on our porch. It’s a good idea to use some foundational accessories like a terrarium or vase featuring a flower .

Styling a classic dinner tablescape is more straightforward due to the fact that there isn’t much room to spare for décor because, obviously, the food and dinnerware are top priority. First, set the table with your preferred, necessary items; placemats, napkins, drinkware, flatware, and serving bowls and plates. Second, fill in leftover space with décor. I like to start with candle holders to add some height then add and arrange the air plants and containers. When you start looking around, almost all home items can be vessels for air plants. We repurposed a large wooden bowl we had stashed above our kitchen cabinets. It was very easy to layer the Spanish Moss, Xerographica, Melanocrater and clump of Juncea to add some texture and height.
Assuming we don’t all have huge dining tables that seat eight plus people, there won’t be a ton of extra space so you may need to simplify. If there is not room for a full blown air plant centerpiece, consider a small terrarium for every place setting.

Party favors may seem a little dated but honestly who doesn’t like free stuff, especially air plants. Make your heart happy and guests happy by sending them home with our most popular air plant accessory, the teardrop terrarium, and a variety pack of small air plants.

Each terrarium gift will be a small momento to remember the special day.
