How to Throw a Cactus & Succulent Theme Party Without Breaking the Banks

Spring is already at the finish line, and it’s time to turn up the heat with a Cactus & Succulent party. Unlike other themes, this one is extremely easy to assemble. Furthermore, since it gives multiple excuses to get creative, it won’t cost you much. But if you are at a loss and don’t know where to start from, here’s all you need to know about how to throw a cactus and succulent theme on a budget!

Color Scheme

There’s no doubt that any event theme begins with the right color palette. Since cacti and succulents come in all shades of green, you shouldn’t look any further than lime green, apple green, tea green, hunter green, and emerald accessories – luckily, we’ve got plenty of them (just use our Shop by Color option). In order to avoid overkill, these colors should be balanced with our hues associated with succulents, like light pink, fuchsia, peach, yellow, and light blue. To create a display, which is not overwhelming to the eyes, we strongly recommend you set up your cacti & succulent theme against a neutral background. Thus, you can dress up your table with a white, light pink, or light blue tablecloth while using our pink or white foam bricks for the backdrop.

Create a Splashy Background

Needless to mention that the backdrop is probably the first thing that your guests will notice upon their arrival. That said, if you don’t want to “stuff” your tabletop with costly themed decorations, it’s highly recommended to pay particular attention to the backdrop. Furthermore, decorating it is easier than it seems. For example, instead of looking for cactus-shaped balloons, you can create them on your own by gluing together three balloons (a big and two small ones), drawing on prickles with a black or dark green marker, and finishing things off with little pink flowers. Or for a greater splash, you can assemble a giant cactus, using lots of pink and green balloons from our online store. A lovely bunting made from our serenity blue glittery foam will beautifully complement your ensemble.

Artificial Succulents & Cacti

It goes without saying that a cactus & succulent theme requires plenty of cacti and succulents. In case you are looking to considerably reduce your expenses or just don’t want to bother about soil and pots, our collection of artificial succulents is just calling your name! Crafted from high-grade flexible plastic, they are exact replicas of living plants. Available in a wide range of species and colors, they can beautifully complement any color palette. Furthermore, since they are “independent” of water or soils, they are much easier to work with. Thus, to make a dramatic statement on your tabletop, you can arrange these bounties into a nature-inspired table runner. Or if your napkins look dull, you can transform our succulents into stylish napkin rings. Whichever way you choose, our succulent line will never let you down.

Don’t Underestimate Food

When it comes to theme events, foods and drinks also play a crucial role in terms of décor. However, not every party maker has enough room in their schedule or budget for scrumptious desserts. Believe it or not, you can easily fix things up with our artificial succulents. For example, even if you are dealing with a “naked” cake, simply place these plants atop, and you’ll get a cactus theme-inspired dessert. In case you have lots of cupcakes with green frosting, you can simply arrange them into a giant cactus or accentuate them with cacti made from our serenity blue glittery foam. At the same time, you shouldn’t shy away from drinks – for instance, if you have green smoothie on your menu, you can serve it in our stylish milk bottles and style them with cute cactus arms, which can be cut out of our serenity blue glittery foam.
