According to the calendar Spring has arrived. But when I look outside, I’m seeing snow fly by. So how do I fight mother nature? By filling my house with Spring decor, of course! I just finished a simple little Spring project in my dining room. My table now has a beautiful Spring Succulent Garden as a centerpiece.
I have to confess, up until about two days ago my planter still had pine cones in it from Christmas. Yep. It’s April now so it’s time, don’t ya think?! 😉 I love the pop of green this new succulent garden adds to the room. It’s a visual reminder that greener (and warmer) days are ahead. Woohoo! I would have LOVED to use real succulents but my planter doesn’t have a liner. It seemed like it would be more work to protect the pine so I just went the faux route.
Besides the plants, you won’t need much to recreate this garden. If you don’t have a planter, any wood tray would work. Here’s a list of the supplies:

Since my foam blocks were taller than my planter, my first step was to cut them in half. Then I simply started placing them in my planter.
Then I trimmed each stem down and started inserting them into the the foam block. Once I got everyone situated, I covered the block with the moss and filled in the gaps.
The purple ones are my favorite. The green is pretty too….but if the purple hadn’t been so expensive…there would be a ton more. Just sayin’. 😉
So now my dining room is officially ready for Spring, even if the outdoors is not!
Now this garden may stay until Christmas…who knows? But since it’s so pretty, I don’t think I’ll mind looking at it for that long.
