Fancy Pants Pots


I found these gorgeous, decorative pots while getting my daily plant fix the other day at Fiesta Gardens here in Toronto. (200 Christie Ave just north of Bloor). The containers on the left are metal with an embossed design while the others on the right are ceramic glazed with a metal bottom edging. At approximately $9 for a small and $25 for the red and white one on the right hand side, they’re a little out of my price range, with my price range being found-on-the-side-of-the-road free to thrifted and cheap. But look at how beautiful they are! I’m thinking that the red and white pot with flutted edging [far right] would make an excellent gift for a certain someone whose birthday is only a month and a half away!

Unfortunately I have not been able to find these online so at this point you’ve got to be local to get your hands on one. If you have seen them available elsewhere please hollar back with a link.

p.s. Sorry about the poor camera phone quality.

One thought on “Fancy Pants Pots

  1. have not seen these online, but similar styles are in every plant store in amsterdam at the moment. concrete planters with the tops dipped in glaze and then printed with floral patterns like the ones in the centre photo. i have a blue one overflowing with nasturtiums and it off-sets the surrounding found pots quite nicely! :)
