I created a low profile centerpiece using succulents and a vintage container. I love succulents and I had this sugar mold and these Pioneer Woman bowls just sitting around…because I buy entirely too many bowls (and other stuff) and I thought I’d concoct a vintage-y planter. I mean look at those blue bowls and that sugar mold (that’s what I was told it was) even though I’ve never seen one shaped like that but who am I to question the junk experts?
This month the Decor Enthusiasts ladies are spicing things up with attention grabbing planter ideas, seriously – see them all at the bottom of the post!
Is there anyplace you can’t plant a succulent? I don’t think so!
I grabbed this $10 flat of succulents at Walmart, potting soil and these fantastic stones.
The succulents looked so healthy and irresistible.
I added the soil and succulents to the bowls – seriously it does not get any easier. I will be using a spray bottle to mist them. I love low maintenance plants.
I thought about just plopping them in to the sugar mold but the practical me – just could not do it. What if I want to use it for something else…
I’ve moved them around inside and outside the house. I have a feeling we will be seeing these rock stars everywhere!
Do you do that? I move stuff around a lot 😉
I shared this photo on Instagram the other day, last year I had banana trees in those planters and this year I added fragrant yellow knock out roses. Spiced it up a little on the deck!
Succulents Make a great Centerpiece
Low growing and they need very little water but I’m giving them a lot of attention…I cannot stop looking at them!

Ohhh, I want one–and you’re right, we may be able to make our own. hmmmm gotta look into that.
I love your centerpiece Debbie, and I think you got a pretty good deal on yours plants. Succulents have become so expensive now that they are so hip! 🙁
Thanks Gail and you are right, expensive!! I remember my Mama and Grandma would have them growing everywhere around the patio and I know they didn’t pay that much for them!
Perfect centerpiece for your table!! I love succulents and this is just beautiful! 🙂
Thanks so much Nancy! Love yours too, I need to go to Michaels!
Love!! Was the wooden centerpiece a “find” or am I able to purchase it somewhere?
Thanks Heather, it’s a found piece. I’m thinking you could make one with a 2″ x 6″ though.
Well, I guess I need to apologise, and I will. You are correct, you do have a sugar mold and not a butter mold. I was confused!!
That’s great to hear, I had never seen one shaped like this! Thanks for stopping by the blog Nina 🙂
Hi! I love your little succulent garden, very sweet and it looks wonderful on your table. But… I do believe you might have been misinformed about your wooden item. I do think, that your sugar mold is really a butter mold. I’ve seen many different butter molds, but never a sugar one. Well, whatever it is, it is very nice
Love this, Debbie!! It makes a perfect centerpiece for your beautiful outdoor space! Don’t those yellow knock outs smell so pretty?? I have three of them out front. 🙂
I love the planter ideas! I think picking the perfect planter is half the fun and adds so much personality. I need succulents like yours this year. Maybe they will stay healthy looking like yours too! LOL Pinned!
Absolutely gorgeous! I love those little bowls from Walmart. I have them. So versatile. This dining space is just gorgeous!
Don’t ever question the junk gods. I love this idea. I have never seen a sugar mold. Okay, so i love your backyard. why don’t you invite me over to sit back there?
