If you want to cultivate your green thumb and try your hands in lighting up an otherwise boring and bare space, planting with succulents is the way to go.

If you’re fond of partying or at least, hosting parties, make a succulents-themed party for your friends. You’ll brush up on your succulent knowledge, as well as fun and creative ideas on how to use these plants to turn a place into a beautiful space for birthday, anniversaries, corporate events, and weddings.

Set the Scene

Liven up your space with succulent plants. Rosettes would look good as centerpieces for succulent parties or if you want something ostentatious, you can opt for dried grapevines and use them to hang the succulents from the ceiling. The best thing about succulents is you can place it anywhere any time of the day. Since succulents love sunlight, they would love to be used as decorations for an outdoor event.

If you are planning to host an indoor event, all the better because succulents can thrive as decorations on tables, walls, ceilings, and floor. There are a lot of ways to use these plants all over your party. All you need to do is open your mind to the possibilities like putting them as accents on buffet and cocktail stations, as well as on the registration table.

Mix them up with a lot of different materials, too, such as garland, ribbons, raffia, or strips of fabric for a more gorgeous look.

Eat Your Succulents

Sure, you can serve a cactus salad or soup. You can even turn them into tacos or incorporate them into your good old quesadillas. There are simply so many options for succulents, though the most creative ones remain to be using succulents as the basis for the designs of your desserts such as piping them on cupcakes or using fondant succulents to cover your cakes and other pastries.

The same piping tips you use to make roses and leaves can do the same if you’re planning on designing your cupcakes with succulent rosettes. Rose and leaf tips can create rounded echeveria rosettes and spiky haworthia while small round tips can create a string of pearls or Burro’s Tail.

If you’re creating a cupcake, frost it first with a spatula to create a “smooth” surface before covering it with a layer of crushed graham crackers to create a “sandy desert vibe.” Then, add the succulents on top, whether they are made of buttercream or fondant. They will look too gorgeous to eat!

There are endless possibilities when it comes to succulents because they are so flexible and versatile. You can turn an event place into something unrecognizable by just using the right succulent plants. Whether they are used as centerpieces or as topping for cupcakes, succulent plants are the next big thing in event styling.
