2013 Wedding Trends: Succulents and Birch Bark

Succulents and birch bark containers are competing for the leading role in popular wedding décor trends. And, for good reason: both are incredibly gorgeous and versatile! Let’s begin with the succulent.

A succulent is a large, bold stem, most commonly seen in wedding bouquets and wedding centerpieces. If you’re including a succulent in your bridal bouquet, typically one succulent is enough, especially when it is large (approx. 6-8 inches in diameter).

Or, add a simple succulent stem to any flower arrangement for a chic DIY centerpiece.

If you prefer a rustic chic look, consider birch bark containers for centerpieces. Birch bark containers are natural, rustic, and functional: a birch bark container makes a terrific vase for wildflowers, greenery, and multi-colored stems to be displayed.

A vivid, eclectic and bohemian look is in with bright assortments of flowers and pairings of colorful bottles and votives.

We also love the pairing of natural grapevine with birch bark and greenery for a rustic look that ties in effortlessly with burlap table linens.
