Saucy Succulents

My sister is having a "Desert Botanical Garden" Themed wedding, but for MONTHS now I have been totally obsessed with Succulents, ever since I saw these pictures

I have wanted to create something of the sort. And then I stumbled upon this blog because Oh Joy! went into a particular store in San Diego and now I am re-inspired! Check out some of Tend's creations! They are absolutely stunning! And the creators are very green! They very rarely utilize cut flowers for their pieces because of the carbon foot print they create. So when using cut flowers, Tend goes local and everything is grown organically! The succulents in the bouquets and boutonnieres can be planted again after the big day too in what Tend calls a "love garden." A perfectly fitting name!

This bouquet is absolutely fantastic!

I love the juxtaposition of harsh and soft lines in these boutonniers.

This bouquet moves me.

And how amazing is this for a centerpiece. My sister is using succulents for her centerpieces and I would love to see something like this. It is just not something anyone would expect!

So BRAVO TEND! Your creations are gorgeous!
