These pumpkins topped with succulents were the most popular item at my holiday sale.
Put these together for a small beach wedding a couple of weeks ago. Sunflowers aren’t in season in California yet, so they had to be shipped from Baja, Mexico. They turned out very summer-like with succulents and all! The mini-sunflower-like mums worked perfectly for corsages and boutonnieres. The attendants (2 daughters and 4 sons) were wearing navy blue, so blue ribbons were added to match. Congratulations to the happy couple!
Combining fresh flowers with succulent cuttings looks great in baskets. These were perfect for Easter. After the flowers fade, the succulents will last for months, growing into the floral foam. Or they can be potted up or planted in the yard.
Promised to post this picture for a customer at the Smart Gardening Fair yesterday. These mini corsages or boutonnieres made from succulents and statice will last for weeks. The succulents will last forever if potted up or planted in your yard.
