How To Use Succulent Plants As Accessories For Both Men And Women

Have you ever felt like all your accessories are the same, and it makes you look somehow boring and predictable? That’s why we try our best to attend weekend markets and bazaars. We want to know if there’s something unique and interesting we can buy to update our wardrobe and our accessories—something that would separate us from others who wear the same bling. Thankfully, we got those in the form of succulents like CAL Farms 20 of 2″ Beautiful Assorted Variety Succulents. Succulent plants are those tiny houseplants we neglect to take care of because they are so easy to maintain and barely need our attention.

Succulent plants are more than just decorations you can put on your mantel, your windowsill or as the centerpiece of your dining table. Aside from the fact that these plants make our gardens more unique-looking, they can also be used as decorations for a wedding, birthday, anniversary, or even a corporate event.

What? You know about that already? Okay, I guess it is not much of a surprise that event stylists are using succulents for their decorations, window and ceiling treatments, backdrops, table centerpieces, and aisle flowers. They are even using succulents to add more pizzaz to a bridal bouquet. Check out Pinterest and you know these people have it right when it comes to incorporating succulents into weddings and birthdays and anniversaries.

So, succulents and accessories… The two almost don’t belong in the same sentence. The operative word here is “almost,” meaning they can actually work together if you are really creative with them. And that’s just how people are these days… creative. If you think your usual accessories have become boring, why not incorporate succulents into your headdresses, necklaces and chokers, bracelets, corsages, earrings, and rings. Yes, they can be in all of these and more.

There’s an actual jewelry line made of succulent plants and they are really interesting to wear.

Headdresses, Headbands and Hair Clips

Have you ever worn a headdress made of flowers? So, what’s stopping you from wearing a headdress made of succulent plants? Succulents grow beautiful leaves and rosettes and flowers, too, so your headdress will look as beautiful as when they are made of roses, daisies, mums, and carnations. And the best thing about headdresses made of succulents is that they last longer and they can be made way ahead of time. When you are using flowers like roses and daisies, you have to make the headdresses on the day of the event itself to keep the flowers from wilting and dying. Such is not the case with succulents because they can last even without water and sunlight.

Necklaces and Chokers

You can turn ordinary necklaces into stunning pieces of art by attaching a simple arrangement of succulents to them. You can use the succulent as a pendant of some sort or you can surround the necklace itself with the plants and make it seem like you’re wearing a garland made of these houseplants.


You think only women need accessories? A boutonniere is a single flower attached on the lapel of a man’s tuxedo or coat. Usually, it’s in the form of a single red or white rose or a couple of sprigs of baby’s breath. You can use succulents for them also for a more unique and interesting take on this man’s accessory. They might even love it more since men can better appreciate succulent plants than roses and daises. Some of the men we know even take care of succulents as their houseplants.
