table setting & succulents

I was really inspired by the simple (but beautiful) tablescape featured on Sunday Suppers yesterday. The occasion was a fresh vegetarian feast, so they kept the table simple with white plates, green striped napkins, pretty menu cards, and an abundance of potted succulents.

I loved seeing the burro's tail succulent as part of the decor (bottom left). Q's mom gave us one recently and it has become a favorite. It grows quickly, and if any buds fall off they can be planted in another pot to start a new burro's tail (so you could have a whole house full if you'd like..).

Do you want my burro's tail? It's the bane of my existence!!! It drops those leafy things like a teenager drops tears. I can't even dust around it. Grr.

I have to admit, the leafy type of cactus is one of my fall back plants so that I can have green indoors year round. Really enjoy the way these ones are displayed as center pieces at a dining table!

I love this idea for a centrepiece - it would be an easy (and inexpensive!) way to always have something fresh at the table at home too!

Oh..so they are called succulents. I grew some for a project when I was in middle school in Taiwan. Using them as centerpieces is an interesting idea.
