|The orchid tree was slow to recover after the horrific heatwave that struck in July but it's finally full of flowers again|

|Clockwise from the upper left, the vase contains: Bauhina x blakeana, Alternanthera 'Little Ruby', Artemisia 'Powis Castle', Hemizygia 'Candy Kisses', Cuphea hybrid 'Starfire Pink', and Persicaria capitata|
|The new arrangement found a spot in the master bedroom, one of the few empty spaces available at present|
With the new vase occupying the bedroom mantle; a Christmas display in the front entry; last week's orchid and Leucadendron arrangement now in the living room, along with a half-decorated Christmas tree; and last week's teapot arrangement still gracing the dining room table, I didn't have space for any more vases. However, I stumbled across a new Instagram trend involving decorating with succulents Saturday evening and I decided to give it a try and share the results with you. Although #succiepotinapot is a Instagram challenge, I discovered it via Pinterest. I relied on materials I already had on hand, which limited my options, but I still had fun with it.
There are many better succulent pots in a pot arrangements posted on Instagram and Martha Stewart has a post on the Instagram challenge too.
For now, I've moved the pot to my lath (shade) house to keep it out of the way of the tree trimming crew due on Saturday.
|I used plastic pot feet to display it on a tilt|
