Succulents and Burlap Bouquet

Succulents seem to becoming more popular and I'll admit to loving them myself.  You may remember me getting some on the half price sale a few weeks back. Some (most) of my plants this year are not looking great and any plant that can tolerate hot July weather and wants me to forget about watering it, well that's even better!

I replaced the ugly flowers in my rusty, bottomless bucket with this succulent. It reminds me go aloe vera. 

So when I was out shopping for supplies last week and came across faux succulents, I knew I had to make a bridal bouquet with them! Very rustic, desert wedding, cactus vibe going on. I first envisioned mostly neutral colors, then couldn't help adding in some turquoise roses.

Vintage ivory lace is tucked among the flowers. This keepsake bouquet can be found in my shop and is ready to ship.

Want other colors? Message me through etsy convo and request a custom order and I'll be happy to help you! 

Has the succulent bug bit you yet? I love how they stay pretty and want to be neglected. My only wish was they attracted butterflies and hummingbirds, as I don't have an abundance of colorful blooms to attract them this year.
