Monogrammed Succulent Coffee Cup

Last Christmas my hubby bought me this gold monogrammed coffee cup.  It was the perfect gift for me.  The gold/monogram combo is right up my alley.  I was so excited about it, but then I realized it wasn't going to be very useful for my morning cup of tea or coffee.  As a mom of a toddler, I end up reheating my coffee more times than I can count each morning and if you've ever had a cup like this you know that you can't microwave it.  The gold finish will set off a mini fireworks show in your microwave.  Not really the way I want to start my day.  So I set out to find another use for it.



I settled on using it as a succulent planter and I love it!  It's adds a nice touch of greenery to my nightstand.



Check back later this week for a small office update!

It makes the perfect little planter, love your pretty vignette, too! My husband always says I don't drink my coffee I just re-heat it all day! :)

Adorable. Seeing gifts from my hubby always gives me warm fuzzies. Love how you used the mug as a planter - beautifully styled with that gorgeous pic of your fam!

Looks cute! I don't drink coffee, but I love the look of mugs so this might be something I could try with the cute ones.

I can't finish a cup to save my life!! I love it as a planter!

Bethany DeVore said...

yes, too pretty to be destroyed, you thought of a perfect use for it Bethany!

What a cute little mug.

I never thought of not being able to reheat the gold ones! I have the older black and white one that I was thinking of replacing, but I'm the same as you I can't drink a cup of coffee in one setting! This was a perfect solution!!!
