If you haven’t already noticed, Succulents are all the rage these days! From bouquets and centerpieces, to succulent gardens and xeriscapes, these fun little plants are popping up everywhere! I personally love succulents, especially since they are super easy to care for, are very hardy and are eco-friendly! To learn more about these popular plants, check out my post, Flower Spotlight: Succulents!
But, today, I am going to share something a little different, a Succulent Party! Whether you want to gather your bridesmaids to help you make favors and/or centerpieces, or you just want to invite your friends over and have some fun, a succulent party is a unique and entertaining way to spend the day! Violet, our resident wedding planner and artist for our Bouquet Inspirations is currently in Hawaii where she recently helped plan and attended a Succulent Party!
A special Thank You to Kristy of mauimakaphotography.com for all of the awesome photos!
Send invites to your party, the old-fashioned way! Have fun and spark interest by drawing pictures of different succulents and putting their official names on the front. (If you are not artistic, cut out photos, or take your own photos!)
Encourage guests to wear ‘garden party attire’ that they can plant in, like the cute apron above! Before the party, you can decoupage a few pots for added ‘pop’ and plant some of your succulents for centerpieces and extra decoration. Provide succulents (be sure to get a variety of textures and colors), small pots (you can also ask guests to bring their own pots if they wish), potting soil, tools, and gloves to protect hands when handling spiny plants or cacti.
For comfortable outside seating, bring the indoors out and use pillows and low tables for a lounge-y, casual feel. Small details like mini pots and tea lights add to the decor, while simple paper lanterns add ambiance.
Covering a few tables in kraft paper gives people a space to work without them worrying about getting your tables dirty. Set out all the tools and an array of different kinds of plants for guests to choose from.
Succulents and cacti are in the same family, so for a xeriscape look, add some cacti to your party! Two plant stands did double duty as decor and an easy place to pick containers and product from!
Guests gather snacks and drinks and pose for a group shot!
Ready to throw a Succulent Party? I know I am! 🙂
