Decorating With Succulents

You can use all kinds of containers for your succulents that coordinate with your decor. I made this succulent garden in some red and white transferware because I decorate with red and white (and transferware). I used a old soup tureen from the thrift store as the main planter.  The steps for making this succulent garden are here.

A collection of 10 beautiful ways to decorate with succulents


What great timing! I was thinking this past week about adding succulents to my deck. Nothing huge but more of creating a small garden of them in a dish.

Always get wonderful ideas from you!

I was never fond of succulents, but in our southern California drought, I am looking at them as a necessity. I love all the displays. My favorite is the old colander. I might try that one.

Yes, I love succulents! Next time I see them at a decent price, I’m going to buy a few to plant in some milk glass containers.
