Succulents in vintage ice cream dishes

These common succulents are easy to grow, easy to find and would make unique favors too.


Single flowers in clear decanters

What is more darling than the soft look of single stem flowers? Imagine the light streaming through the clear glass–simple beauty that is part whimsy, part casual but fully pretty! You could have all the same vases or decanters or for an eclectic look–a variety of different shapes and sizes.
