Summer Is Upon Us!

Summer is upon us. A new season means different colors schemes and floral arrangements to accent your big day. Pink peonies are making their way onto reception tables and bride’s bouquets at Ashton Gardens. I love the way pink peonies look when they are arranged with succulents.

From romantic, rustic chic, or modern style reception, succulents are easy to incorporate into any ceremony or reception decor. Succulents are available year round and are indestructible. Like a cactus they require very little water to survive.

Succulents can also double as favors or place card holders. If you are budget conscious you can save money by purchasing the succulents yourself instead of going through a local florist. Succulents are available from the Cactus King in Houston and IKEA.

From all of us at Ashton Gardens, we look forward to seeing your own spin on succulents as we move forward into wedding season.
