|Floral / Succulent "J" that I made for our|
wedding with Afloral and Dollar Tree items
I LOVE succulents. I was so excited when I saw this trend start a couple of years ago. Succulents are almost like tiny, living sculptures. They're each uniquely formed and beautifully detailed. Luckily San Diego loves succulents, too. There are some awesome succulent walls here in San Diego (check out the store Pigment in North Park!) and there's even an entire garden devoted to succulents at the San Diego botanical gardens. Check it out if you're in the area.
Check out this website for where to get good deals on live succulents online. If you are looking for fake succulents to make some of these more intricate decorative items I would recommend checking the Dollar Store (they had $1 succulent picks this past summer), Afloral.com (they have the widest variety), Hobby Lobby (they go 50% off once in a while), and Michael's (sign up for the 40-50% off coupons)!
