Thrifted Pink & Gold Plant Display



Just a few months ago I started swapping all our colorful d├ęcor with neutral grays and whites. I was craving a clean, minimalistic, cohesive look after being brainwashed by Pinterest with rooms like this and this

It was good though. We removed a piece of furniture from our family room, we took down some excessive artwork, we removed some pillows, and I feel like things look more clean and put-together as opposed to a random smattering of “stuff.”

Buuuuut….

I MISS COLOR!!! And specifically, pink. Hot pink! 

Books are my go-to, inexpensive way to quickly add pops of color, so I dug around the book section at Goodwill Waterloo and found these two hot pink books.:

I then came across these copper cups that I thought would be the perfect little planter for a succulent that I could set on top of the books.
Copper cups and stand | Goodwill Waterloo | $2

Then, I spotted this amazing faux bamboo gold plant stand and knew it would be the perfect place to display the books and copper cup.

I needed one more plant to add some height so I bought a snake plant because snake plants are known for being extremely low maintenance with incredible survival skills -- a MUST for any plant entering my home...

...and then combined it all together into this little group of color happiness!


This is exactly the pop of color I needed!

  8. I am totally impressed with Dermessence and really regret wasting my time on home remedies which takes years to give results. Home remedies work, but very slowly and in some case they just stop aging signs from developing further, but do not remove them completely.

  9. Those who enjoy cooking are always on the lookout for herbs to use in their recipes. Since herbs are small in size, it is easy to grow them inside the house. viparspectra
