5 Ways in 5 Days: Creative Containers

For the last week on our Facebook  page we’ve been exploring how to create different looks using the same exact pot.

We chose this bowl for its low broad design, perfect for dinner table centerpieces. It provides a generous surface area for planting, and its versatile concrete facade can be styled to be both modern and rustic in design.

Here’s a recap of what we did plus a few new photos to hopefully inspire you to get creating your own!

1) Movement – Adding airy height to a container instantly creates motion and draws the eye up.

Up a Wall

Vertical Garden

This Saturday, August 13th, I’ll be playing with plants – VERTICALLY at Filoli. If you’ve not been to this treasured estate and garden in Woodside, California, it is worth a trip. 

Scouring the Lila B. photo archives while planning for the class reminded me that the possibilities are endless! Plus, it’d be fun to share some ideas.

Each day this week, starting this very morning, a new idea on vertical gardening will be posted on Facebook.

Hope you’ll join along. I’d love to see some of your vertical living art too.

Happy small space gardening everyone!
