Mixing in Some Succulents

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I’ve been looking at a lot of floral pics. And I normally go for something fairly monochromatic, but I’m loving these arrangements that I found on Pinterest. They range from bright to muted, with the common denominator being the addition of succulents. This is a whole new approach I hadn’t really paid attention to before (probably because I don’t normally peruse the wedding sites—which always have the best references). I’ve always liked succulents grouped together in clusters, and now I think they look especially fresh mixed in with other flowers—like these soft floppy peonies. This is one trick I may have to try at home. Are you sold on succulents too?
