Succulents Centerpieces

Posted by Cecile at Thursday, January 08, 2009
I love to use fresh centerpieces in my house and here are few of them that I like so much! They are low to maintain plants, yet very sensitive and easy to take care of.

Succulents look great in low groupings, and their shallow roots and small size make them ideal as centerpieces. Decorate a garden table with a clay saucer planted with ‘Chalk Rose’ selection, ‘Pinwheel’, and baby tears. Finish the look by sprinkling small pebbles over the exposed dirt. A lot of sun and a little bit of water will keep this centerpiece thriving long after your meal is over.

Magic in Numbers
The Spice of Life

Succulents come in many vibrant colors. Add drama to your entryway by mixing shapes in a patina copper planter (#227366). Plant pink-tinged ‘Little Jewel’, and allow string of bananas, to dangle over the edge. Mark the center of the grouping with the upright stalks and mottled skin of ‘Pink Blush’ aloe . Add some silky, black stones as a decorative touch, and listen for oohs and aahs from guests.

Succulents store water in their leaves, making them the ultimate “green” plant. And they don’t require a lot of care, so they’re perfect for busy lifestyles.

Handle plants gently. If a stem or leaf happens to snap off, don’t throw it out. Just push a broken part into the soil, and soon it will form a new plant.
