I love when wedding decor can be re-used as home decor. Loooove it. So when I (Emma here!) spotted these modern hanging air plant holders over at Handmade Sam Made, I couldn’t resist sharing their geometric awesomeness with you. But first, what is an air plant, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you!
An air plant — aka Tillandsia, if you want to get technical — is a sometimes rootless tropical plant with grasslike leaves, according to Google. Water and airborne nutrients are absorbed through its leaves.
Air Plant Wedding Decor
An air plant makes an exceptionally lovely flower alternative for wedding decor, especially for a modern wedding because it offers a minimalist look (similar to the succulent). If you want to decorate your wedding with air plants, we recommend using them as centerpieces, like so:
Another way to use air plants as decor is to hang them, whether from trees, rafters, or displayed on a back wall as a sconce or plant holder. These brass Himmeli designs are some of the prettiest I’ve seen yet…

Do you love dual-purpose wedding decor like I do? Emma here and you might remember these chic flower vase favors we talked about yesterday as wedding favors, place cards, AND decor. Pretty amazing, right? Today we’re back to share another dual-purpose idea: wedding wishing trees! They serve as your favors and guest book in one (plus, they’re so pretty as decor, too). These wishing trees are handmade by Simply Mad Weddings and we think they’re a truly brilliant idea. Read on to see more…
Wedding Wishing Trees
The wedding wishing trees from Simply Mad Weddings shimmer and sparkle. Each one is made of a hard plastic with a sturdy base, so it won’t tip over easily. It measures 32″ tall and can be customized in either light rose gold glitter or silver glitter, whichever coordinates best with your decor. On the tree, you can hang ornaments — also from Simply Mad Weddings — which serve as favors for guests. The ornaments are available in different shapes like starfish, hearts, stars, etc., to coordinate with your wedding theme. The tree also serves as a guest book because when a guest takes an ornament as a favor, they leave a wish (written on a tag and hung on the tree in place of the ornament). After the wedding, the newlyweds are left with sweet, handwritten wishes by guests; guests get to take home a ornament favor to enjoy for years to come. It’s a win-win!
