You take some little potted succulents (approx. $3 each)
Then you get a martini glass from the dollar store ($1) and some colored pebbles ($2-3 dollars a bag with a 40% off coupon at Mike's) and fill the bottom of the glass with the pebbles.
Or you could splurge a little on a $5 terra cotta mini planter.
Add some cactus soil (approx. $3) and the succulent on top of the pebbles
And then add a layer of the pebbles over the soil. Tah Dah!
A succulent parfait - prettier and much cheaper than the $16 price tag that we saw at the flower show!
This one's a little more mediterranean looking I think.
And if you happen to have leftover or other colored stones or crushed shells and more $1 glasses you can have a party!
