I’m a sucker for succulents. I have what they call a black thumb, which means succulents are the only thing—besides myself and hopefully the dog—that I can manage to keep alive in my care.
But besides the whole “they’re easy to care for” thing, succulents are gorgeous and great for decor and tablescapes. If you put flowers in your centperpiece, they’ll last for maybe a week. But throw some succulents in there instead and you’ll have flora at your Halloween table for the whole month of October.
As a bonus, succulents totally give off a spooky vibe, especially when planted inside tiny skulls. I spotted this idea in the October issue of Country Living Magazine, and I have to say that I’m in love! Drop a little soil and some tiny succulents into skull-shaped shot glasses for a creative tablescape or mantel. Looks totally glam, right?
You can grab a set of four of these Kikkerland Skull Shot Glasses here from Amazon.com for under $17.
