Cactus Theme

Leather Cactus Pouch £30.06 – Amelie Mancini at Etsy


Whilst researching for last week’s Cactus Wedding Theme Ideas feature I discovered the amazing print designer Amelie Mancini and her Etsy shop.


Amelie’s patterns show her love for the botanical realm – cacti and ferns in particular. Yes, the colourful cactus is taking over the design world and you won’t be able to resist the prickly prints in this collection!


These cute cactus inspired ideas would make lovely destination wedding thank you gifts and the pretty pouches would make perfect make up bags for destination brides-to-be or bridesmaids.


Do browse around the Amelie Mancini Etsy shop for yourself as there’s plenty more gorgeous styles to take a peek at….

Move over the popular pineapple, there’s a new spikey friend in town. Yes, the latest growing trend is for pretty, prickly cacti!


Botanic garden inspired designs have been cropping up across the homeware and fashion world this year and with it, the humble cactus has been flourishing.


Not only easy to look after (which is great news for those, who like me, have a distinct lack of green fingered-ness!) these thorny little lovelies sit stylishly against industrial and scandi-inspired interiors that are the homeware looks de jour.


Also seen dressing plenty of fashion press events (such as the Whistles menswear launch last year), you can even pick up a cacti in the House of Holland store, apparently they’re flying off the shelves.


These drought-loving plants are not only totally on-vogue but they would add great texture and interest to your wedding aisle, wedding tables and wedding reception displays. They also make a cute and unique wedding favour idea and due to them surviving without constant watering they could not be any more ideal for sunshiny destination weddings – there’s certainly no risk of these tough fellas wilting in the mid-day heat.


So pretty up your destination wedding with these barbed beauties. From neutral hues to bright and beautiful colour palettes the versatile cactus compliments any theme. Take a look at these cactus themed wedding ideas for inspiration….
