Blue might seem an unconventional color for fall, but when combined with rustic brown plates and haphazard glassware, it makes a wonderful statement. The pop of blue is an exciting alternative to the usual colors associated with fall like brown, red, and orange.

When you are working with a simple table design, it is important to partner the table with an eye-catching pattern. The animal hide chairs above perfectly compliment the dishware and make a great statement!

Rather than going for a standard wreath or candle centerpiece, try incorporating something more unique. The centerpiece is where you can let your creative side shine! The table above conveys a rustic look with metal plant stands, old books, and tree-branches scattered down the center. When layering objects on your table, make sure to use dense objects as a base for more whimsical decor. The combination of books and branches looked great with the plants + white containers!

  • What feels more like Halloween than pumpkins? Using pumpkins instead of vases for plants like succulents or fresh flowers is the perfect way to get into the fall spirit. You can use a fresh pumpkin or purchase a ceramic one.
  • Dark tones create a very mysterious feel in any arrangement. Adding elements like a black vase or incorporating darker colored flowers can spruce up a bouquet.

  • The combination of purple and orange flowers bring a fun spooky aesthetic. You can tie these colors in with a Day of the Dead skull or other Halloween decor.

  • Fill a glass vase with mini pumpkins-you can choose between white, orange, or a combination of both! This is a simple way to bring fall indoors.

Tips + Tricks

  • When deciding what to grow, consider smaller plants. Smaller plants are generally easier to care for, and will get larger as you care for them. When planting allow room for the plant to grow and flourish, a crowded plant never grows to it’s full potential. Read the plant tags to gage how large it will grow. 
  • Using a fertilizer can ensure plants receive the nutrients that it is not getting from the soil, and can ensure that it grows to it’s maximum potential. 
  • Eggshells are a natural decomposer that are beneficial to the health of a plant and it’s soil. Eggshells contain calcium that helps build a healthy structure of the plant, ensuring it will live a long healthy life. Eggshells are also used to warn off many insects and pest to protect the plant, slugs and snails especially. 
  • When introducing potted plants, chose a pot that matches your style and aesthetic. To ensure proper drainage, make sure the pot has three or more holes at the bottom so the plant does not die prematurely from overwatering.

HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR SUCCULENT WALL PLANTER
RG-6344.jpg

Plants and succulents are a great way to add a touch of color and a more natural feel to your interior space. However, interior space is valuable and we don't always have room for a potted plant beside the sofa. A wall planter is a great solution for this problem because they provide a natural appearance while taking up minimal space.

Wall planters come in many shapes and sizes, from spherical ceramic planters to rectangular wooden planters. Succulents are often the best choice for this type of planter because they need little maintenance. Additionally, flatter succulents like the paddle plant are a great choice for this type of planter because they will will remain the most secure. Continue reading below for more tips and tricks on how to properly maintain your succulent wall planter!

TIPS & TRICKS

  • Select your style of wall planter to match the interior design. A bright white ceramic wall planter is great for a more modern space. 
  • Ensure that your wall planter is situated on a wall that receives moderate sunlight. 
  • Place moss around the base of the wall planter as both a decorative tool and to retain moisture. 
  • For a more interesting look, try using three small wall planters and stagger their placement on your wall. 
  • If the soil appears dry, mist it with filtered water on a weekly basis.
  • Lightly water the soil in your planter on a monthly basis. 
  • If a succulent appears to be dying or if it is outgrowing the planter, remove the succulent from the arrangement.
