I purchased a mum plant and cut it apart. The stems of the mum are stiff enough to stick into the sod and stand upright. The sod boxes were surrounded with votive holders that I purchase at a dollar store (3/$1). The holders were also gifts for the guests. I had tea lights burning inside, then they were sent home with new scented votives.
a long thin piece of sod left;
a perfect size for the buffet table.
we added six small balusters for legs. I used my little silver insects to help decorate the buffet table, too.The event was a lot of fun!
