I love seashells, I love succulents and I love beach weddings. I also love that I’ve recently been seeing terrariums used as both decor + favors for weddings. What’s wonderful is that they are living and will continue to live well beyond your special day or special event. Another thing that’s great is they can be made well before your wedding, leaving less to do right before (just make sure you water them!). So I figured I would dive head first into learning about what it takes to make them, so that I could bring you the real scoop and the day has finally arrived! I challenge you to get creative with the ingredients – just like I did. Seashells + sea glass, rocks + pebbles – same thing! My take is a design for a beach wedding, but yours can be anything you please, using any colors and plants that you’d like. I want to give a special shout out to CereusArt and The Succulent Source for donating some of the ingredients!
