Easy Succulent Garden (in a milkglass dish)

I love adding live plants to my home.  Love the color and decoration that they bring and also love that they are good for you in purifying the air.

So when I saw these succulents on clearance at Wal-mart, I snatched them up.  Succulents are very popular right now and I have been wanting to add some to my house.

I chose this milkglass dish that was one of my yard sale finds (picked up for $1 or less).

Mi-summer always leaves me longing for the beach, so I added some shells and starfish with my little succulent garden and a white lantern to a wicker tray I have on my coffee table.

Do you have succulents in your home?  Or do you decorate with items or colors inspired by the beach?

  1. I too have decorated my bathroom with a beach theme. Love the colors and shells. I not really successful with plants of any kind. I do have a holiday cactus that I inherited from my mother in law. It has been in the family over 100 years! Still have it alive after 3 years…but it’s never bloomed. Let me know what I’m doing wrong!

    • Move it to a room where it gets more sun. Doesn’t have to be direct, but they like the light! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The milk glass looks great with the succulent! Anyone growing succulents should bear in mind that they need soil that drains well, such as potting soil mixed with sand. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. This is adorable! Love the milk glass.

  4. I love this! But I am like the black widow of succulents. I am a serial house plant killer. Isn’t that sad?! Perhaps I’ll try again. Gonna keep my eyes peeled for succulents on clearance!
