Tuesday’s Trends: Chic Container Gardens

Hello Fabulistas! Warm weather has me using every excuse to spend some quality time outdoors. And while you’re outside, why not put your time to good use and plant some beautiful gardens? Even if you don’t have a green thumb, (I sure don’t!), you can still stage some gorgeous outdoor scenes with the help of containers!

Desktop garden

Your excuse of not having room for a garden stops here. This little desktop obelisk is made of upcycled window glass and has enough room for some mini plantings that you can easily admire, even if you live in a studio apartment!

Hang it up

This is another fab small-space solution! A walled patio or fence is another garden opportunity with these sleek planters that came about from the Shane Powers-West Elm collab. If you have no ground or surface room for containers, just bring them to eye level with these!

Detailed cutouts

Cutouts have made a splash in fashion and accessories, so why not home decor, too? This vintage copper planter is one of my favorites from my Shop Robin collection.
