Best Planter Roundup

You’ve all heard my rant about planters, lampshades and frames – all things that tend to cost way more than the actual plant, lamp and artwork that you originally bought them for. I’m going to make MILLIONS, nay BILLIONS of dollars with my planter, shade and frame empire someday.  

But at the same time the right planter can be a total conversation piece and absolutely worth throwing down some cash for. You can use it over and over again, change out the plant if you kill them and often, on their own they can also be great sculptural elements.  




1. Male and Female Busts, $300,  My friend Joy has these and I LOVE them.  Great with succulents or flowers or just on their own. They aren’t cheap, but such a great gift.  

2. Dinosaur, $14.50,  Cute and cheap.

3. Glass Tripod,  So beautiful

4. Wig Planter,  I can’t find where to buy these, but they are so awesome.  

5. Pocket Beastie Planter

6. Flower Me Happy Pot, $79  YES. In so many ways.  



1. Blue and White, $60.  This company has a lot of great handmade planters. 

2. White Beaded Planter, $92,  LOVE.  

3. Wood and Leather Planter Holder,  I’m not sure if this is still for sale, but i love them.  

4. White Drop Hanging, $150

5. Vintage Mid Century Planter,  Where can i get my grubby little hands on these. 

6. Faceted White Planter, $76   From Pigeon Toe Ceramics, a Portland company that i love and sell on Opensky.



1. Geometric White Planter, $68

2. Yellow Pod Planter, $186,  I’m most likely buying these for a client soon.  

3. Blue Okura Planter, $895,  I mean, if you have an extra $900 grab yourself this Jonathan Adler planter

4. White Wall Planter, $72, So simple and pretty.

5. Marbled Planters

6. Bloombox  For the equal lover of tech and plants.  

7. Striped Planters baskets. These are so fun, colorful and smart.  

  1. Thank for that! I have a couple of plants that I've been struggling to find nice planters for. Unfortunately they're all on the verge of death, but at least they deserve to look pretty on their way to plant heaven.

    I love the male/female bust vases that your friend Joy has. I remember seeing them on her episode and couldn't let it go. I had to buy them and buy them I did. Except I wasn't going for the $300 price tag when I found them at the same link you provided. I kept searching and found them for $117.99 a piece. The company that makes those is Abigails Home Decor and they are sold here:


    $235.98 total, which includes free shipping so that's quite a cost savings from using Floral LA (in case anyone else becomes as obsessed with them as I was and needs to purchase)

  3. Love all of these!!!!

  4. Holly

    *GASP* …these are so…. oh my gosh… I love these!! Christmas list DONE. :o) Get ready Salvation Army, you are in for a truckload of Ikea planters. Thank you Mrs. Henderson!

  5. Thanks for the link love lady. I am getting a bunch of these planters made (the mid century hanging planters) I'll hit you up when they're ready! xxx

  6. Brad...

    Ok… of course the one I like is the $895.00 one…

  7. Abby

    LOVE the magenta dinosaur! So quirky and cool!

    Hi Emily, I always love your tips and rooms. I have a question that's not on the topic of planters at all. But I was wondering
    My husband and I are on the market for a house . How do you know a house has good bones or can be updated with moulding , new flouring and kitchen etc that you have in your mind . because when you visit a house its usually beige with a dark kitchen and bad furniture. .so if you have any tips/suggestions before you make a big purchase to know that this will be something you can transform . Because when you just visit houses it's other people's style and taste .and it's a bit overwhelming to know after you buy it you will actually like it. . Thanks again!!

  9. I love the Male/Female Busts. I also remember them from the episode. They aren't in the budget right now but I can't get them out of my mind.

    I made dinosaur planters for Christmas gifts last year. I made 3: navy blue, orange and then a fuchsia one. They were a big hit.
