Add some instant Palm Springs style to your backyard table by potting up a miniature landscape of baby cactus. The key to making the design look chic?  A top-dressing of small, dark gravel to hide the soil and make the colors pop on the little golden barrel cactus and tiny white-spinned thimble cactus. Scroll down for a video on how to create your own.

In the video, we swapped two of the little golden barrel cactus for a blue candle cactus to give the design a little more height.  Any small, slow-growing cacti would work well.
