It’s no secret that along with millions of others, I love succulents.
It all started when my children were very small and I discovered the tightly woven, textural, rosettes called echeverias. Back then, I spent hours crafting and caring for living wreaths.
These days, I prefer no-fuss projects with a sure outcome and it doesn’t get any easier than this!
I started with my large white container that often holds orchids. Its home is on a silver tray that rests on my coffee table in the living room. This room has huge floor to ceiling windows so it’s filled with light.
Made in Italy, my container is thick, heavy and deep. I needed a whole bag of excelsior to fill the container to the top so the succulents could be at rim level.
Next, I started to place my freshly watered succulents into the container. Leaving the plants in their plastic pots will allow removal and watering as needed.
To complete the arrangement, small pieces of green moss were tucked around each pot to give the arrangement a cohesive look.
And voila! I have a little of the outdoors, inside for the remaining summer season.
The next project I’ll tackle? Polishing my silver!!
