Recently had a wedding and we decided that we would make all our own centerpieces. We made three types: Orchids, Bird Cage Vines, and Succulents. Here is how we made the Bird Cage Vines.

For vines, I used pothos and coleus, because I had the plants already growing in my house. They are both easily propagated by just sticking stem clippings into a jar of water for two weeks until the roots are an inch or two long. For more info on propagating these plants, check out these posts: Pothos Propagation, Coleus Propagation.
The bird cages were still around at Christmas, so they received some decorations.
Using two pothos and three coleus per pot worked well since we had a long time to let them grow.
In total they hung for around 9 months in the apartment before the wedding.
