I jumped on the Succulent Bandwagon!

Succulents are so popular now.
So of course I jumped in and did a Succulent Tablescape.
The only succulent plant I was familiar with before this past year or so, when they got so popular, was chicks and hens.  We used to have those lining our garden bed when I was little.
Now there are so many varieties available.
I think the second one in on this side of the tray looks like Shrek's ears!
I found these galvanized lanterns, very reasonably priced.  I may plant some of the succulents in a pot and put them in these lanterns instead of the candles I have here.  I don't think the succulent plants will last long in this galvanized tray because there is no drainage.  

There are a mix of fake and real succulents here. I have seen some bad artificial succulents out there, but I didn't think that these little pots on the place setting looked too fake!

Are you all sick of my green polka dot napkins?!  I have been using them a lot lately.
It's funny, they were one of the cheapest sets of napkins I have bought, but probably the most used.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful Mom's out there!!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.


  1. When I was in college my mother fell in love with succulents, and I thought they were just awful~ I have been slow to jump on the band wagon myself, but I really love how you used them on your table, really attractive! You might be changing my mind!

  2. Hens and chicks are a childhood memory of mine. One Easter a few years ago, I used them as a theme for my centerpiece. I planted a silver basket with hens and chicks and a few other succulents and then added some hen and chick figures. It turned out pretty cute! That said, I'm not a big fan of succulents. We have some, but I prefer softer plants. Your display makes a cute centerpiece.

  3. I love your succulent tablescape. They should do good as long as they get plenty of sun and just a little water. Like two tablespoons of water every 3 or four day depending upon ambient temperature.
