Okay, so I was pretty amped about my awesome promotion for multiple reasons. One of those reasons? Having plants at my desk. I know it sounds silly, but there's just no way to care for greens in the basement of a retail store. Now that I have a cool job in a cool office, I figured that I should spruce up (no pun intended) my area and maybe kickstart my green thumb.
I went to Terrain this past weekend to pick up supplies, but obviously you can go to any greenhouse or home decor store — heck, even vintage or thrift stores for interesting containers — to get what you need. Here's what I ended up with:
- Moss — I went with Selaginella Gold Tips. My eye was drawn to the color and obviously I'm going for fairly low-maintence plants given that they will be in my office!
- Air Plant — Again, I went with this for ease. I grabbed one in a more neutral color for contrast.
- Succulents — Succulents are my favorite. I went with a nice variety of color for obvious reasons.
- Variety of Planters — I wanted different heights and color. I ended up with a Grey Two-Toned Mug, a Jadeite Tumbler, and a colorful votive. It would be really fun to mix these up with vintage pieces!
