• No Green Thumb Necessary

    I was most definitely born without the green thumb. In fact I don’t even have a green pinky.  So I’ve jumped on the bandwagon of plants that I absolutely cannot kill; cacti and flowers that are already dead.

    With Thanksgiving around the corner, I’ve forgone the traditional attempt of arranging a live bouquet for the feast and have started working on a new type of display of “survivors.”  Here is my inspiration!

    What a beautiful bouquet made of floral and cacti, the perfect balance between blossoming flowers and green succulents

    The perfect place to display a dangerous plant? Behind the safety of a glass bell jar.

    Dried roses, lavender, and wheat give off such a gorgeous rustic feel…this makes me want to have a country barn wedding

    If I ever desired to build a table for the outside and stuff it with cacti, this is exactly how I’d do it.

    And lastly, I will be bringing something of this variety to my hostess for this weekend’s game day party and to my host over the holidays!
