Have you seen this idea before or am I really behind on the times? Cheers to the flower divas! This is what I stumbled upon this week… succulents mixed in with flowers for bridal bouquets, boutineers, center pieces and really all types of floral arrangements. Succulents are not limited to monochromatic shades of green so there are endless possibilities of mixing in all sorts of colors together… pink, yellow, purple, teal and black to name just a few.
Recycling the bouquets by transplanting them into containers might just be the quintessential green idea since the succulents in these arrangements can be preserved and re-used. How nice it would be to display a living reminder of a special event while adding to its value and memory.
Using Echeveria and Aeonium succulents in rosette shapes compliments the design mixture with the natural shape of roses and carnations. Long lasting flowers such as orchids can keep up with the stability of the succulents offering a long-living bouquet. Sempervivums are more compact and work well in center-piece arrangements.
Here are a few photos from various online sites ~ SO inspiring and beautiful!
