Our latest Wine & Design class takes on a Japanese flair with these trending kokedama succulent balls. Never heard of kokedama? You will! This unique design style from the Far East is getting noticed by floral design influencers & trendsetters all over social media, including Martha Stewart! 


Kokedama means “moss ball” in Japanese. It is a style of bonsai gardening used to display plants by suspending the sphere shape using a decorative chain or string. We like to think of kokedama as “living pots.” Kokedama design is a great way to incorporate your favorite succulents indoors, outdoors, or for a show-stopping element at a party or event.
