surfboards and succulents

There’s a funny thing that happens to me all the time here in Hawaii. When I tell new people who I meet that I’m a blogger and they then ask me the name of my blog and I tell them… they automatically assume that I blog about surfboards. I’m not joking. So this gave me an idea – how about a surfboard themed wedding inspiration board?

Succulents and surfboards would make such a cool wedding theme for a beachy bride! Succulents are perfect for beach weddings for a multitude of reasons: the leaves mimic the shape of surfboards and the green looks fabulous against the blue ocean and sky. Plus – they won’t blow away in the breeze!
