Make a Succulent Mug Gift Bouquet

Make a succulent mug gift bouquet the next time you need a little something for a friend or hostess. This transcends the traditional flower-stand bouquet and has utility long afterwards. Succulent coffee mug bouquet

    Wondering where I can purchase some of the succulents that you show…are there any on line stores…….? I live in NC so sources here are limited. Thanks.

      You can buy them online—one source is Altman Plants—or look for them at the garden centers of Lowe’s and Home Depot.
