I had originally wanted a dough bowl to use as the planter, but honestly, they were way too expensive! So I went to my second home, HomeGoods, and found this great planter for $19.99. Hard to beat that! It works well with all the gray in my house too.
Pike's had an amazing assortment of succulents. Pretty big plants for $4.99 each...the big one in the center was only $5.99! I spent about $30 on the plants, completing the project at around $50! No joke I saw one almost just like this at Pike's for $289!!!
Now my breakfast area has a nice, permanent (well, if I don't kill it) centerpiece!
