Succulents for Christmas (and after!)

Succulents are proven to be one of the biggest on-trend products this year. They are used in wedding bouquets, wreaths, arrangements… The possibilities seem endless! Did you know that succulents are great to use in Christmas decorations? Below we listed some ideas, which can be carried on after the festive season. A true win-win situation!

Living Baubles

An ongoing trend this year: succulent baubles! These living baubles are still gaining popularity and are great to use for Christmas. Just buy some open glass baubles and fill them with succulents. Instead of succulents, you could also opt for air plants to brighten up your baubles. Or fill the baubles with twigs like pine and holly to make it look even more Christmassy! Hang them in your Christmas tree for a natural on-trend look.

Living baubles are also great to use as decoration after all the festivities. Instead of putting them on a bed of snow, you can decorate it with sand, gravel or shells for instance. This will add some detail and colour. If you want to buy them ready-made, you could pay a visit to your local florist. Many florists sell living baubles these days. For example our Florismart florist: The Garden Studio.
