I have a love of both succulents and vintage cups. My idea was born. Pair them together.
Here's what I did. For about a month or two before the shower I would go to our local thrift stores and look for vintage cups that I liked. Sometimes I would find just 1 and sometimes I would find 4. The key is to do this ahead of time. The day before the shower I went to our local hardware store and purchased a bunch of succulents and cactus dirt. Then I just assembled them. I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out and I think my guests enjoyed them too! They each got to pick out their own cup to take with them.
The reason I love succulents so much is that they are pretty easy to take care of. I don't have a green thumb. The key to succulents is giving them enough sun and don't water them everyday. Just water them every 2-3 days during the hot months and about once a week during the cold months.
