Unique Ways of Using Succulent Plants In Your Events

Have you ever thought about how unique and interesting succulent plants are? How versatile they are compared to our regular garden plants? How great their textures are and how much range of colors and shapes they have? It’s truly amazing when you consider the many ways we can use succulents to make our homes more gorgeous and to make an ordinary office space homey.

But beyond our homes and our offices, we also see succulents being used to liven up a blank canvas of an event place. Have you seen a birthday party or an anniversary celebration with succulents as the main design? Don’t these plants look gorgeous and fun? Every event stylist is looking to design an event place that’s both beautiful and fun. You may think that’s a pretty ordinary combination but come to think of it. Roses are only beautiful. They are not fun. Peonies are pretty. They are not fun. Daises and sunflowers are fun, but they are not drop-dead gorgeous.

On the other hand, succulents are always beautiful when they are in full bloom. And also, they are fun once you consider all the different colors, shapes, and textures they bring to a room. People can gather around a succulent décor and talk about how unique the setting was and how the color matches the overall motif of the event. It’s a conversation-starter, and it’s also one of the most interesting decorative pieces an event can have.

Centerpieces and Bouquets

Do not think that you can only design with succulents alone. The best thing about these plants is that they are so versatile and flexible they can be mixed with other garden plants such as roses and tulips and they will still stand out. Or better yet, they can bring a touch of elegance to the already gorgeous bunch of red roses you have in your hand. You can use a succulent arrangement as table centerpieces or as bouquets for weddings. All you need to do is use different shapes and sizes of succulents to bring height and weight to the arrangement.

Ceiling Treatments

A popular trend these days is to hang flowers, balloons, lanterns, and other ornaments from the ceiling. This will create such a gorgeous backdrop in an indoor event place. How about hanging succulents instead? Succulents are great because they last long so even if you hang them as decorations during the day, they will still look as gorgeous as ever when the party extends to evening time. Roses and other flowers can easily wilt because of lack of water but succulents will still look plump and lively even after a day has passed.

Backdrops

How about a succulent garden as the background for the stage? We’re so used to using plastic ornaments and decors that we never stop to think about how gorgeous real flowers and plants would look like when they are used as a stage backdrop. Trust us, your photos will look priceless and you’ll feel like a million bucks.

Top 7 Reasons Why Succulents Are The Best Plants Ever

Do you have a green thumb? Or not? While many people love looking at flowers, plants, and other kinds of succulents, not all of us have the capacity to grow them. There are very few people who have the “green thumb,” as they call it, that magical touch that allows plants and flowers to grow under their care. Luckily, we now have succulents to make us feel better about not being able to grow plants and flowers in the garden.

If you are a frustrated gardener or you simply like seeing plants inside your homes, a succulent plant is the best option for you.

Here are our top 7 reasons why succulents are the best plants to take care of:

1. They are Low Maintenance

Succulents need little sunlight and water. You can leave them for half a day under the sunlight (while you are working) and then take them back in after you come home from work. You can water them before you leave, and then allow them to dry up before watering them again when you come home. It takes very little effort to make sure they grow healthily.

2. They Come in All Colors

Whether you want them in girly colors of pink and lavender or you want them in earthy and natural colors like green, you’ll never have a hard time looking for the color of your liking. Succulents come in all kinds of colors you’ll be amazed at how many are available in the market.

3. They are Attractive as Hanging Plants

One of the things we love most about succulents is they can be tied with a string or a decorative cord and hanged indoors or outdoors. You can hang them in your gardens or inside your homes as decorative centerpieces.

4. They Can Be Transferred in Teacups

Instead of having to buy decorative pots, you can use an old teacup to put the succulent there. It looks dainty and very girly afterwards (if that is the look you are going after). There are other options, too. You can put them in a mini aquarium you haven’t used for years or put them in birdcages all together. They’ll make for an amazing décor.

5. They are Ideal Party Favors

If you don’t know already, succulents like CAL Farms 20 of 2” Beautiful Assorted Variety Succulents make for great party favors. Whether it’s a wedding, a birthday, an anniversary, or a company party, it’s nice to be given a succulent as a giveaway.

6. They Can Be Used as Wedding Décor

You think succulents are only used as living room décor? What’s stopping you from using it as a wedding décor? They can help guests find seats or be used as table centerpieces. You may even turn succulents into a wall décor where guests can take pictures in front of it.

7. They Can Be Turned Into Wreaths

If you’re tired of seeing the old wreaths again and again during the Christmas season, you can turn your succulents into them instead. They are livelier to look at and definitely more interesting than the common items used on wreaths.
