Succulents are no longer just for terrariums. They are appearing more and more in floral design. I'm seeing them in bridal bouquets, table decor, boutonnieres and even on wedding cakes. I'm excited to be creating a beautiful bride's bouquet this July featuring Tillandsia, an air plant, and succulents as the stars of the show. There's something delightful about seeing this unusual "flower" subjecting the garden roses to the back seat!
Here's some beautiful samples. Notice the combination of textures combined that really make the succulents sing! Combining different sizes and hues make it even more interesting. On a side note, the succulents can be removed from bouquets as a keepsake. They are simple to root. This memorabilia from your wedding bouquet could live on for years as a plant! Same for the air plants. Find a little perch or pedestal and it's a great coffee table accent.
