Gotta Have Em - Succulents

Every day is full of challenges and today is no exception.  For a few weeks now, I have been working on the design concept for a large corporate client (so excited for the April gala!) and the design challenge for our team is...(drum roll please)..."no florals." Yes, the theme of the gala is "spring time" but I have been giving direction not to use any fresh flowers. For those that know me best, they know I am always up for a challenge and I rather liked the idea of choosing something out of the box, something that would stay around for a while, and something that was alive just not necessarily in bloom.  The idea of these inspiring little gems immediately came to mind and I am having so much fun incorporating them into our master plan...

I have been using hens and chicks in my garden at home for years and every year I see them popping up on pretty wedding table centerpieces and in bridal bouquets alike.  I love their texture, varied color and how happy they seem to be spilling over the sides of pots or nestled in a terrarium.  It looks like I may be mixing these little guys with something that has a bit more "zest" for this project. Hmmm...What might that be?

  1. I am a big fan of succulents! They were placed in individual bowls and at each table setting out our wedding. And since they are so sentimental I love having them in our home too. Great post!
