wedding succulents

Reading last month's Domino magazine, I fell in love with this succulent centrepiece on Adrien Grenier's table. I have always been fascinated with succulents! There are so many shapes and sizes and colours. But especially because they are 'neglectable' - read: it is hard to kill them even with a non-green thumb. So wouldn't they be perfect as a wedding centerpiece? These luscious plants will not only last through the ceremony, but they can continue to be enjoyed long after the wedding. A quick search on the internet found these beautiful images:

They look fab in bouquets, boutonnieres, and as favours too...

Recently actress Samantha Mathis {remember her from Pump up the Volume - am I dating myself here?!} opened a floral design firm called Succulent where they specialize in only creating succulent floral arrangements. And a bonus - they ship worldwide. What a great idea! See ya later, wilty hydrangeas....
