My newest obsession is succulents. I made a little arrangement for my parents' sitting area in their backyard. I used a fabulous vintage metal plate that belonged to my great grandmother. Here are all the steps if you want to create one of your own:
What you need: a plate or whatever you want to use, different sorts of succulents - at least 3-4 to make it more interesting, with different heights (in my case there wasn't much choice at the store unfortunately), some pebbles and soil.
First I put some pebbles at the bottom to make it more real for the plants. Then added soil, planted the succulents and finally added pebbles on top. It is really easy as you can see. Have fun! :)
