I’m talking about plants!OK, you saw how I used succulents in the blog “Phoenix Rising” and I promised a follow up on the little darlings. I currently can’t get enough of them! They are in my yard, my decks, my home and my designs. First, lets talk about variety, ok, that will take too long, I don’t think you could see all the varieties if one was brought to you every hour for six months. Just look at the colors, no, these are not flowers but they have floral faces. Some look like roses, some mums, asters, orchids, I know crazy huh?

Now, what do I do with the sweet blooms that are not blooms? Everything! In bouquets, boutonnieres, accents for you guest book, escort card and cake tables, favors and use as greens in centerpieces or make THEM your centerpieces! Here’s the really cool thing: After the wedding toss them in a container (be a little gentle, they do “bruise” a bit if you really throw them around)take them home and you can practically set them on the ground and they will grow! Talk about going “green”. Use them for your next event, put in planters, window boxes, give them as gifts, thanks yous.
