creative succulents for mom

This is one of my favorite looks.

I've had so much fun lately scouring 
Goodwill stores and yard sales for 
interesting little containers to plant succulents in.  

Among these lovely inspirations,  
you'll spot two of my succulent arrangements.

So elegant!

Great use of colored glass.

A wreath is always a popular choice.

So soft and pretty.

Mix and match.


Orchids and succulents.

So creative .

Any mom would feel the love with this one.

A large arrangement made by my friend Camille.

A mini adirondack chair.

A weathered crown is just the right touch.

Masses and masses of hens and chicks.

I love this color combo.


Succulents always look great in colorful terra cotta pots.

surprise mom with this planted in the garden

Here are my two succulent pots....

 In my kitchen window, I've got a  large clam shell planted for me by Camille.

And in my dining room, 
I have  a thrift store stoneware  bowl
planted with a large aloe surrounded by string of pearls and succulent ivy .


My mom would love this one! 

ciao! fabiana


While I’m here today, I wanted to share some of my "Tablescaping Essentials" with you. I have a whole page on the Amazon website with my favorite picks for setting a beautiful table.

Quite often time is of the essence, and I have last minute projects or events to work on, so I turn to Amazon for one or two day delivery. You’d be surprised at how many amazing items they have to offer! And I'm constantly updating this page with my new favorites. 

You can check it out here, at Tablescaping Essentials.
