Turn your outdoor area into a serene sanctuary by putting plants on display. Play with proportion and height by working with plants like Boston Ferns and Peace Lilies. Create a quirky vibe by using old items like rain boots and wooden boxes as planters.

Add a sophisticated touch to your room by displaying orchids. Select a chic pot where you can place your orchids. To protect your bedside table from scratches, you may add a printed mat before placing the pot. Make sure to water your plant and do not expose it to too much sunlight.

Greet guests with a well-curated setup of greens and blooms. Add a console table or small cabinet where you can put your plants on display. Create a charming vignette by showcasing succulents and cacti. You may also work with mini bromeliads.

RL Tip: Use clear glass vases or mason jars as planters.

Add color to your plain dining table by placing a group of small potted plants to serve as a centerpiece. To create a uniformed look, you may also repurpose old cups and glasses into tiny planters.
