In keeping with the green theme for your St. Patrick’s Day party, I thought I would provide you with some ideas for your dinner table decorations using succulent plants. However, please note that in this article about St Patrick’s Day decorations, green will be referred to as good for the environment green.
Daily we are reminded about our environment and the importance of recycling, reusing and reducing everything we use. Florists and restaurants are now getting on board with this mantra as well. Recently, I have noticed various restaurants using succulent plants as table decorations on their dining room tables. Bar arrangements and front desk floral arrangements are incorporating succulents as well.
According to Sherene Hulugalle, the idea of using succulent plants for table decorations is that once the flowers fade, the succulents can be re-planted and will keep growing. Also, succulents don’t use as much water and will last longer and their colors will be more vibrant.
Another fact about succulent plants is that they last a long time as long as they are in well drained soil and watered regularly. They can thrive indoors as long as they have indirect sunlight.
