Decorating with Succulents

Succulents are so popular right now,    but I wondered if they would work with my style of decorating.    I like to mix styles.....    romantic,  farmhouse, shabby chic,,  why not add a few succulents in the mix!

I chose a white enamel basket to create a succulent design for the three tiered DP table in the family dining room.

I filled the bottom of the basket with small succulents.......

To add a romantic touch to my succulent design,    I placed two white rose bouquets in the center.     I mixed small succulents in the rose bouquets.

I finished up my design by adding some larger succulents.

I decorated the display unit in the corner of the room with some succulent touches to tie everything together. 

 On the first shelf,    I have a shabby chic container full of ferns.     Then,  I repurposed  a flatware chicken wire carousel by filling  the compartments with a chick in a nest and a potted plant.    And finally,   a small succulent plant with a succulent  print  on a clip in it.

The second shelf has a hand painted coffee pot.......a shabby chic container of succulents and grass......and  a small potted succulent with a print.

I went around the dining room adding touches of succulents......

On the pass thru,   I added two Starbuck jars filled with boxwood from the yard.

I removed the Starbuck logo's and glued on succulent prints.

Update on the pass thru

I did a post on the pass thru a few days ago,  but I've tweaked it in the mean time!      

I added a succulent print to the existing vignette on the top of the metal serving cart.

I printed off three prints and couldn't decide which one I liked the best.......

I loved all three.........

but,   I think the succulent wreath is my favorite.

I used some succulents in the centerpiece on the table 

I filled the bottom of the nest with succulents before I added the pink eggs,  ribbon,  and rose.

  I would love to hear how you've incorporated them into your decorating style!
