This project is actually not a new one. I did this one before we started the blog but it is sitting in my office and it caught my eye today and I realized I haven’t shared it yet and since I love it so much and it was super simple to put together I thought I would take the opportunity to show you this easy succulent display I made for our home office.
I’m sure I am in the majority when I say I am kind of obsessed with succulents. I love the colors, interesting shapes, uniqueness and simplicity. It is kind of impossible to have just one succulent. I wanted to create a display that highlighted how succulents come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
It was around this time last year I mentioned to my mom that I wanted to create a succulent display but I wasn’t sure what I wanted it to look like so we had a mother/daughter shopping day and brainstormed ideas along the way. We hit up the clearance section of Lowe’s and found they had all their cute little succulents half off. It was hard to pick my favorites but I finally narrowed it down to six that each had their own interesting appearance.
I still had no idea what I wanted to put them in or how to arrange them but our next stop was Pier 1. I figured they might have a cute bowl or mug fairly cheap that might make an interesting display. Then we found a tasting party set that had little unique shaped cups sitting on a bamboo tray that was perfect!
Even though we weren’t sure if they were going to fit, it was too good of an idea not to try and MAKE them fit. And when I went to check out, the set was on sale too! $11 for the cups, tray and as an added bonus, mini spoons! I obviously didn’t need the mini spoons for this project but I was pretty excited to have some mini spoons to eat with should the occasion arise. Who doesn’t love mini spoons?
They were just the right size! I planted each succulent in a cup and arranged them on the tray based on height.
This was extremely easy to put together but I just love the results. I have been enjoying it for a year now and it makes the perfect desk decor for our office. It’s such a simple and cute way to show off my succulents collection.
