Succulent arrangements, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways…
It’s no secret that we are madly in love with succulent plants! Succulents are an eco-friendly addition to any wedding decor. They are a great alternative to fresh flowers during the winter months and can be taken home and re-used by guests at any time of the year! Succulents come in an array of varieties, shapes and colors, making it a super versatile plant to incorporate into your centerpieces. Plus, these beauties are incredibly hardy and easy to care for which makes them perfect for even the blackest thumbs out there! Have we convinced you yet?
How to Use Succulents in a Centerpiece
Think about your Vessel
Succulent arrangements offer a striking combination of freshness, texture and color. The fleshy plants can be incorporated into your centerpieces in a number of creative ways. For instance, we love an assortment of succulents placed in one large vessel. Likewise, we adore single succulents potted in smaller vessels clustered together. In contrast, if you want to skip a vessel entirely, table runners or garlands are an elegant way to incorporate succulents into your centerpiece. Arrange plentiful amounts of greenery, succulents and flowers into a sophisticated strand.
Succulents look gorgeous on their own, but are also stunning when accompanied with other flowers. During the winter months, a mixture of dried flowers, small stones, berries, or pinecones add interest to your succulent centerpieces. While in the warmer months, fresh flowers or moss can be incorporated into your succulent arrangement for a seriously exquisite result!
