Sunday with succulents

The weather has been amazing lately so this weekend I did a little planting in my yard. One of the things I really enjoyed was planting a centerpiece for my glass top patio table.

I knew I needed something I could put a candle in, and the candle would have to be protected from the wind. I went shopping in my display closet and I think I found the perfect remedy…….

I  only have one planter of succulents so I thought I would give them a try again. I first thought of using a rustic planter since I usually think of succulents with a rustic look. I personally like a bit more of an elegant look. The table needed a pop of white to bring out the trim in my cushions so this planter fit the bill perfectly.
