It's practically impossible to open a shelter magazine without seeing the succulent trend in action – page after page, succulent after succulent. But the trend hasn't stopped there. Floral design professionals are now seeing wedding customers asking to integrate on-trend succulents into centerpieces, boutonnieres, and even bouquets. 

Tom Bowling AIFD, CFD, PFCI uses this video to demonstrate an intriguing way to infuse a bouquet with a touch of artificial succulent style.

He begins with the artificial desert rose succulent pick from Pioneer Imports & Wholesale. On its own, this artificial succulent is handsome and stately – a selection that immediately catches the eye. For the chosen bouquet composition, the color would make a spectacular complement. 

But as Tom points out, this substantial artificial succulent might be a little too heavy for this specific application. His solution is quick and easy, and readily applies to a wide variety of other artificial succulent picks on the market today. 

Tom takes a moment to split the outer casing on the stem and divides the artificial desert rose succulent into thirds. He adds his own stems – left over from previous projects – and adds them to each section. Now he can add these artificial succulent sections into the bouquet individually, rather than as one large placement.

Spreading out the artificial succulent sections not only balances the bouquet visually, but it also distributes the physical weight better as well. 

Next, Tom does the same thing with a selection of wholesale artificial rosemary from Pioneer. He trims the sprigs apart and attaches more leftover stems with floral tape but notes that you could easily use wire instead of stems if none are available. He mentions the importance of using the tape to cover any wire ends that may be exposed. Now you can add the artificial rosemary in singles or doubles or however you want. 

The artificial desert rose succulent brings sophisticated color, while the silk rosemary enhances the profile with a loose airy look. Together, these selections enhance the texture profile tremendously. Simple additions like this can take a bouquet from traditional to on-trend – and with the value maximizing tips Tom shows here, you can do so without a significant hit to the budget.
