Since I am new to the blog world, I thought I would kick off my blogging career with something simple. I came across this beautiful white tray of succulents, and suddenly a flood of images popped into my head of other gorgeous arrays I have seen in my blogging and flower-obsessing past. Perhaps it’s the Californian in me – or it could be my inability to care for any kind of houseplant that requires my attention – but I absolutely love the color, structure, and tenacity for life that is the succulent. I am especially enamored with the way stylists, event designers, and retailers have popularized the succulent and turned it into a classy compliment to antique colored florals, sterling silver mint julep glasses, and olive turned wood cake stands. These green beauties have come a long way since my days of tromping over ice plants at my grandparents’ beach house.
