DIY Orchid Arrangement

I love orchids. Who doesn't? People say orchids are easy to maintain, ya not always. For our master bathroom, I wanted a grand arrangement. I went shopping for a rustic weathered looking pot and I found one at my go to "pot place" a consignment shop that sells model home furniture. I scored some succulents from a local nursery and scrounged up some moss and shells from around the house. The orchids you ask?! Ya they are fake! I am not the biggest fan of silk flowers, however, these look really REAL...

Although the orchids are fake and will last forever, I still wanted some real-ness. For the little bit of realness I added some REAL succulents. Adding the live succulents fools people and my self into thinking (or imaging) that the orchids are live!

I am enjoying my arrangement very much. My Mom loved it so much that she asked me to make her one for her birthday. Hers sits nicely on her kitchen counter.
