Air Plants!

The designers are having so much fun with air plants these days! Also known as Tillandsia, air plants are so easy to care for and add a bit of spunk to an arrangement.  Air plants do not have roots, do not require soil, and mainly thrive on the dust and moisture in the air, which means they are super easy for those missing a green thumb.  There are so many ways to use these plants: add them to an arrangement, use them on a piece of drift wood, or place them on top of some beautiful river rocks - that is just the start, the possibilities are endless.

To round out the summer, try getting an air plant and putting it into one of the shells you found this summer at the beach.  Here are the instructions for how-to do it!
