Trend Watch: Stunning Succulents

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Here in arid Arizona, we're big on succulents. They might not be exactly what you think of when you imagine a front lawn, but landscapers can do absolutely gorgeous things with desert plants.

So can florists. I am really loving non-traditional arrangements using succulents.



I just love this opulent floral table runner mixing roses and succulents. Gorgeous color palette.





And how easy would this favor/table card/centerpiece be to DIY? It looks so striking and modern, but with a rustic edge.

And to carry the theme through the whole event, wouldn't these miniature succulent gardencuff-linksmake a fabulous groomsmen's gifts?





And don't forget the bridesmaids! I just love this necklace, also from Woodland Belle.





I really, really want one for myself! It only took 11 years, but maybe I finally am getting used to living in the desert!
