DIY succulent favors + centerpieces by Kelly

Categories   DIY Projects

Remember that out-of-control cute wedding in Palm Springs that was all over the blogs a few weeks ago? Kelly + Chris? Surely you saw it and saved every single image to your wedding research folder like we did. (It really was that good, Kelly!)

Well, crafty bride Kelly started her own sweet blog and she posted a tutorial to her adorable succulent favors and centerpieces. We took those images and we’re shamelessly reposting them here, because we’re positive that you’re all going to love them.




So cute, right? You can see the full tutorial/succulent making party (including beer, nice!) on Kelly’s blog:

yes, please

I was at the home improvement store the other day and saw some cactus and succulents that had some red hues to them. What a cool idea! (and eco-friendly)

I almost did this - even with the same IKEA metal pots. Seeing these photos make me wish I had. Instead I went with some round metal pots.

I love succulents they just look so perfect. Do you know what the name of the succulent on the top right in the second picture is? Its the round light green one. I want one! Thanks

Jess, It is most likely an echeveria elegans, commonly called Mexican Hens and Chicks.

Love this idea. Totally stealing it. Where did you buy the galvanized pots in bulk? Or any suggestions as to where to purchase them on the cheap?
