a few lovely succulents


I was completely enamored by the lovely table (and the overall room design) in the conservatory of the Showhouse that I keep mentioning (promise this is the last time!) I adore succulents and natural materials-making the beautiful table in this room completely dreamy to me. I may have to do something similar at my next dinner party!



Sorry for my poor and slightly crooked photos! Oh and I can forget to tell you that this space is the wonderful creation of Frank Ponterio.

i love having plants in the house, but seriously, i am cursed and i kill them, even when i think i'm loving them, they die. so sad. (i like the idea of this as a centerpiece for a dinner party)

That is so pretty! And not too hard to make considering the plants are all small-ish and the rocks could be found outside.

I also wanted to mention I posted a project this morning that I attempted- I was inspired by your post on embellished necklines.

I'm recently becoming obsessed myself with succulents... so much harder to kill than my normal houseplants!
