Pretty in Pink – Layer some bright pink rocks on top of your succulent’s soil and see what happens! We’re loving the way the pink mixes with the soft green, it’s such a great color combination. Not a fan of pink? Try using a different color rock like purple or blue.

Stool It – Ok, so this stool can technically be used for anything, but we really like the idea of setting your succulents on top of it. The fun neon accents work well with the lush greens of the plants. It doesn’t take up too much room, and can add a nice pop of color to your space.
