Continuing on with the Donna Wilson theme, I asked Matthew Robbins and his team if they would be interested in trying their hand at interpreting a tablescape inspired by Donna…they not only did 1, but 2 inspiring tabletops, but today we’ll focus on this spectacular one utilizing moss & succulents. It was actually inspired by a rug that Donna had seen while in Milan, and really does make for a striking centerpiece…so ethereal and whimsical! Be sure to check back tomorrow when we take elements from this tablescape and make an entirely new one!

Flowers are always lovely, but it’s hard to make a real statement with the bouquet you choose for your big day. Here are a few bouquets that are a bit different and will leave a lasting impression.

You know how succulents are totally in right now? Well, in my humble opinion, they ain’t going anywhere! This trend is here to stay! I love seeing how people can apply them in various creative ways (psst: just came across this informative site, Succulents and Sunshine, which tells you everything you need to know about them.) I think they are so refreshing in a wedding. They’re crisp and minimal and simple, perfect for a couple who wants to do things a bit differently.
Use succulents in so may ways like the following:
- Succulents in a floral arrangement for centerpieces
- Succulents in a monogram letter
- Succulents in a bride’s bouquet
- Succulents as party favors
- Succulents as name tags
- Succulents on a wedding cake (how cool is that, right?!)
Would you ever consider using succulents at your wedding? How so? Comment below!

I caught sight of these unique vessels & flower arrangements a while back and was so inspired by their colors I just had to share them here. Artist Kate Rohde created these resin vases as part of a L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival exhibit, with florals done by the talented Cecilia Fox. They’re all so wild and carefree, and would make great inspiration for centerpieces.

I’m loving how billy balls are so in right now. They are the perfect dash of happiness and cute, yet used in the right way, they can also be a modern. The long line of the stem creates a unique height and the perfectly round pop of yellow adds an unexpected quirk. Try adding them into your wedding in some unique ways: boutonnieres for the groomsmen, a bouquet with succulents, a more modern bouquet with lots of them together, use one on it’s one for a place setting, use three to act as ring stands, or group them on their own for a centerpiece.
Have you used billy balls before?
