Centerpiece Ideas need feedback pleas

Okay so my wedding is going to be a garden theme. For the favors I want to give out flower seeds. My idea for the flower seeds were to put them in a babyfood jar write the name on the jar of the person and glued onto the jar would be a rose, lily, daisy etc whatever flower seeds I give that person. I want to then make a rose centerpiece on one table, a lily centerpiece on another table so forth. I do not know if it would like tacky to have different flowers in different colors on each table.

    It's not tacky to have different centerpieces, but I cannot visualize the centerpiece you're describing. In my head I can't see how the flowers would look together (or how you would keep them from wilting), plus the seeds would look really lonely at the bottom of a jars. It could work, but I'd want you to do a mockup and show pics because I just literally can't picture it.

    Sounds like a terrific idea, very cute!  So the kind of seeds they get will correlate to their table "number"?

    Having different flowers in different color combos on every table would be very busy and not cohesive.    If you edit the idea to pick 3 or 4 specific flowers, it could be much simpler.  Many flowers (like roses) are not grown from seeds but instead from cuttings.  Cuttings inside a glass jar would die before the ceremony ends.

    I think this could be really pretty, especially if you kept all of the centerpieces in the same color family.  I really like the idea of giving seeds - it's something people can acutally use and they will think of you as they see their flowers bloom!

    This sounds like such a cute and creative idea! 

    I think you should try to have some kind of coherent color scheme though.  For instance, all pink flowers, but different types of flowers for each table.  Or half white flowers and half pink flowers, but different types of flowers for each table.
