a story about succulents ...
this past july my husband and i hosted a reception to celebrate our marriage (we got married the past december in a very small private beachside ceremony ... more on that later). i had been succulent-obsessed for a while so when we were discussing what we wanted to use for centerpieces the decision was easy!
a few months before the party my mom and i were able to go pick out our succulent babies at etsy seller SucculentsGalore's green house.
our babies the day we picked them out:
chris & his dad built planter boxes:
my in-laws took on the task of caring for the succulent-grandbabies for a few months and then it was july!
after the reception chris & i were happy to gift many of the planters to our family & friends.
we took some home as well, and this past weekend we replanted them in to a more permanent home:
(thank you pinterest for the great idea!).
what do you think? we are really loving our cinder-block planter. it was a quick, easy project. we got it done in an afternoon after a quick trip to our local lowe's.
