Inspiration Board: Gorgeous Succulents


My love for succulents started a few years ago when I realized, after managing to drown several hundred dollars worth of houseplants, that my mother’s green thumb had skipped a generation. Fortunately, my local nursery turned me on to succulents which are beautiful, interesting, and most importantly, nearly impossible to kill.

Imagine my delight when I started seeing them become the new “it” plant to incorporate into bouquets, arrangements, and DIY-inspired potted plant place cards! Succulents provide the perfect juxtaposition to more delicate and frilly flowers, while still keeping the look feminine and summery. And for grooms looking for a less traditional boutonniere (but not willing to go the skull and crossbones route), succulents are a super cool alternative.
