Succulents are pretty wonderful, not to mention extremely popular and trendy these days. If you haven't heard of a succulent yet, you're in for a treat! Succulents are very hearty plants, usually because it stores a lot of water in its stems and leaves. They retain this water to endure weathers in arid climates! How perfect is this for someone like me?! Yes! So like many flowers/plants, they come in various shapes, sizes and colors.
In recent days, they've become very popular for their resilience (I guess there are lots of people like me out there!) and because they're very versatile. People are using them for everything these days.. from centerpieces, weddings, party favors, terrariums and home décor, you're sure to find succulents almost anywhere!
My mother recently asked me to make a living succulent wreath to give to one of her friends for Christmas this year (and yes, it continues to grow and lasts forever if you take care of it). Although I had never worked with them before, I took on the project with open arms! Here's the finished piece. If anyone has any questions or would like a tutorial in the future, let me know! I'll gladly provide one!
Also, as a little announcement, I've decided to dedicate this blog almost entirely to my love of floral design. Don't worry, I'll still try to throw in the occasional giveaway too! In 2014, I am going to be posting at least 1 blog per month.
