•  Artificial Flowers & Plants •  party decoration

Perfect for insta-worthy late spring and summer celebrations, cactus & succulent theme has been one of the hottest party trends for a couple of years. There’s nothing surprising about it – easy to set up, this theme is a perfect solution both for kids and adults. To tell the truth, it takes no more than a couple of tricks to host a cactus & succulent theme on a budget!

Color Scheme

When it comes to theme events, the right color scheme always plays first fiddle. Certainly, this rule applies to our cactus & succulent theme party. If you are looking to make a great splash without breaking the banks or racking your brains over how to combine these or those shades, it’s highly advisable to go for bright pops of colors against a neutral background. Since cacti and succulents are the main sources of inspiration for this theme, use colors associating with these plants. To this effect, we suggest mixing and matching different shades of green (lime green, emerald, hunter green, apple green, etc.) coupled with sporadic pops of fuchsia and peach against a white or light pink background. For example, you can set the ball rolling by draping your table with blush or light pink linens coupled with the white or light pink (light blue is also OK) foam brick background.

Bet on the Backdrop

Instead of stocking up on plenty of expensive theme decorations, you can give way to your creativity with the backdrop – while being the most prominent part of any décor, it’s a perfect “canvas” for various DIY projects. For example, instead of purchasing cactus-shaped balloons, you can create them by yourself – simply glue three green helium balloons together (two small ones and a big one), draw some prickles with a black marker pen, and glue little pink (orange, blue, fuchsia, etc.) flowers atop the smaller balloons. Alternatively, you can create a giant cactus, using multi-sized green and pink balloons. Whether you go for balloons or not, adding a garland of tiny cacti cut out of our serenity blue glittery foam sheets will never hurt.

Get Creative with Foods

We understand that you might not have enough time for preparing intricate themed snacks. Luckily, there are lots of easier ways to match your snacks and drinks to the party theme. For example, if you are going to treat your guests with a cake, there’s no need to fork out on something cactus-inspired – you can simply go for a “naked” cake, which can be then finished off with our artificial cacti and succulents. Have got lots of plain cupcakes? Use our serenity blue glittery foam sheets to cut out lovely cactus toppers for your cupcakes. You can go even further by getting multiple cupcakes with green frosting and arranging them into a cactus shape. On top of that, if you are planning to have green smoothie, you can serve it in our milk bottles, which can be further transformed into cacti – just complement them with cacti arms made from our glittery foam!
