You've seen book centerpieces. You've seen succulent centerpieces. But have you seen books-used-as-succulent-planters centerpieces? Thanks to Tribesmaid Aravaile, now ya have! They're unbelievably gorgeous whether the books are closed, or open…

We drilled or hand-cut holes through the covers, or open pages of books, and planted succulents into them. We used the pages removed from this children's book specifically to make the table number holders, by Mod Podge-ing them onto Mason jars, which we filled with black sunflower seeds and stuck cheap chalkboard signs in. –Aravaile
