Desert Blooms

I’ve always been quite intrigued by the idea of using cacti and succulents together for a tablescape, so I decided to have a  desert themed lunch for a few friends. I used an old orange and white striped tablecloth which I’ve had for ages and never got a chance to use.

I’ve used variety of different kinds of cacti, the smaller of which have their blooms still attached. I thought it made for a fun and vibrant setting. I used gold and white plates to offset the colours a little bit, and to add some dimension to the table.

Along with the cacti and succulents, I used coloured twill balls which used to be hanging lights. I removed the lights and wires, and used them individually to add brightness and another level  of texture to the table.

I loved the effect in the end, this turned out to be one of my absolute favourite tables I’ve ever done!
