Sprinkling & Decorating With Succulents Around the House

Succulents have a thick, dense nature because they retain water …. like cacti. But we aren’t talking just about cacti when we’re talking about succulents. We’re talking about an array of green shades and fun textures that are alive and bring a bout of fresh air to any space of the house. We love using these to sprinkle around the house during the summer months, so let’s take a look at some real-life examples and learn what decorating with succulents is all about.
