A few months ago, when I was picking up items for Hannah and GG, I found these little beauties at Home Goods and thought "what could we use these for?" The big one was a measly $19.99 and the littler one was $9.99 (a GREAT deal because they are actually quite large). We used them for a few events holding candy and straws but when Hannah said she wouldn't need them anymore, I jumped at the chance to take them home again. I thought for a little while about what we could use them for and then thought "terrariums!" Since we had a nice 4-day weekend, I thought this was a chance to hit our favorite Portland plant store 'Pistils' and have a go at it.
I will be honest with you all...I don't love 'messy' activities. So this was a big stretch for me and I was also very careful to let them do what they wanted with them...not what I wanted. I think they did pretty good since I wasn't overly involved on how they looked. The gal working was extremely helpful and helped us pick out all the right items:
- Succulent planting soil
- low-light succulents
- animals (our favorite part, of course)
Check out the 'Pistils' website here and make sure to visit them on your next trip to Mississippi Avenue in Portland. The store itself is pure eye-candy and they also have a ton of great ideas for the inside or outside of your home.
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend!
