I’m missing my projects and haven’t worked on much because of the little furry ones. So I decided to share the details of the succulent arrangement that I made for our fireplace area makeover. I just didn’t feel like placing the standard roses or flowers on the table and wanted something more permanent. That is if I don’t kill the succulents again. I thought I’d give it another try to plant some and see if my luck with them has gotten any better.
We have an incredible little nursery close to our house who has all kinds of beautiful house plants. I could spend hours in there looking at all the beautiful plants.
I tried to find different succulents that had different leaf shapes, textures and colors and here is what I came up with. To me it’s almost like making a little peace or art or sculpture.
Succulent arrangement idea
Here are the types of succulents I used:
Did you know you can buy live plants on Etsy if you don’t have an amazing nursery locally like I do?
All the shops have amazing varieties of succulents.
I brought the brass pot from my parents’ house and love it because I grew up with it. You can find an abundance of similar pretty vintage brass pots on Etsy (click HERE).
You need an extra plastic pot, some potting soil and then you just have to combine them all in the pot with extra soil.
I used to give succulents little sips of water here and there but recently read that you are supposed to give them a good soaking, to the point the water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Make sure that the plant pot doesn’t sit in the water though and that you empty it. Let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
That’s what I will try this time to see if they live longer that way. I clearly killed them the last time with the way I was watering them.
I love this little arrangement and it added just the right amount of green texture to our fireplace makeover. Don’t you think so?
