Whether outdoor or indoor you can easily fill the crates with a multitude of flowers or one large gorgeous plant. Add wheels to the crates- and voila you easily move them from one room to another! This is a great way to display the occasional flower delivery, if you’re bored with a basic vase.

These glass bowls are durable, decorative and usually come in sets of three that allow you to mix and match your plants of choice. Now you can easily fill vacant space on shelves, or incorporate them with your coffee table décor.
For larger houseplants, baskets are the way to go. They showcase the height and vibrancy of the plant and also serve as a design element themselves.
Choose a simple beige, or go for a pattern look to add a little bohemian flair. Perfect for that Fiddle Fig Leaf plant you’ve always wanted.

For a softer choice, a linen laundry bag is a great alternative to a pot or basket. Since these bins come in a variety of colors and designs, you can easily find one that will fit the color palette of your home. Just don’t forget to line the bag to avoid water spills!
