catching confetti.






Today I'm guest blogging for Mandi over at Here's looking at me kid. I brightened up a corner of my home by making a mini succulent garden in a lightweight concrete container. Check out more photos and instructions on how to do-it-yourself here.

  2. is that dried or artificial craspedia (the yellow flowers)? where did you get it?

    i have been desperately searching for either - wanted to use it at our wedding expo booth this weekend. let me know if you know of any local places to find it!

  4. marisa - it is dried craspedia, and i ordered mine online here from hammelman's. it's cheap, and 1 bunch is quite a bit! i'm not sure of any places to buy it locally.

  5. This post made me smile because I just started a succulent garden. Love the DIY concrete planter. I'd love to attempt this craft myself but since my husband does ceramics purchasing dishes/vases/pots/planters is blasphemy. Hopefully we'll be able to work through this "issue" in our marriage.

  6. Love that! I wish it took up more than just a corner though, my house has way more than just a corner that needs sprucing.

  7. Very nice!

    I am loving concrete used as home decor. It seems so industrial and yet earthy at the same time.

  10. You are an absolute doll. Those yellow bally flowers are my favorite. We had them in our wedding flowers and I was so sad to see them go.

  18. Great idea, and as I am uttery incapable of coming up with something so clever on my own,I have every intention of stealing it. But more importantly, where did you get that plate? I am seriously lusting over it.
