    “Working with succulents is easy and fun. You don’t have to think too much about the additional accessories, including the table and table linen on which you plan to arrange them. Succulents can be so striking that ‘less is more’ when it comes to the background canvas of the centrepiece arrangement,” says Sarita Handa, luxury décor connoisseur and founder of her namesake label.

    Some succulents have thick stems in eye-catching silhouettes, while others have a natural inflorescence to their structure which makes them a sophisticated choice for table décor. They are also available in vibrant shades of orange, yellow or red, while some come with a charming hint of purple or lilac that complements the lush shades of green in the rest of the plant.
