These rosette-shaped 'Echeveria' resemble a favorite cut flower, but the similarity ends there. The endurance of the succulent plant is unequaled and will leave guests with a lasting and easy-to-care-for reminder of your wedding -- all they need is good drainage and sun. Plant pots that have been primped for the occasion, then line them on a tray like rows in a garden. Sponge-paint 2-inch-diameter terra-cotta pots; let dry. Fill planter with potting soil, plant succulent, then tie 5/8-wide double-faced satin ribbon in a bow below lip of planter.
