"Set it and forget it with potted plants. Want one less thing to attend to on party day? Choose a few small potted herbs, miniature topiaries or succulents to use as table decor instead of fresh flowers. All you need to do is plunk them on the table when the time comes. Just be sure to use pretty cachepots like the ones shown here, rather than regular flowerpots with drainage holes in the bottom — they will look neater on the table, and you won’t have to worry about leaks or spilled dirt."
