Winter Planter … I Need One Baaaaad

I’ve been running like a bit of a crazy lady lately. I’ve had a couple of big projects wrap up this week though so am hoping to turn my attention back to our house in the next few weeks.

It’s December 9th and I still have this pathetic planter on our front porch. It’s such a sad, dead thing. Looked so pretty mere weeks ago. It’s also glaringly out of season and drives me nuts to look at everytime I pull into our driveway.

I was at a party last weekend and loved the planters my friend had put together (would have been good if I’d taken a picture to show you too but it wasn’t happening at midnight!).

So, I’d thought I would see what’s out there in hopes of some inspiration to get off my butt and do something about it this weekend!

I love the look of boxwood plants. So clean and simple looking.


A festive planter can be changed up post-Christmas season.


I love this dramatic planter. Such presence and sets the tone for your home.


A fun way to incorporate a holiday message.


I love what Sarah Richardson did with her home in one of her holiday specials. The tea lights on the log pile are perfect!


I’m on a mission to put together a winter planter that I can be proud of this weekend. Wish me luck!

Have you done your winter planters?

  2. Hi neighbour, would you mind doing mine while you are at it? 🙂

  3. Love your planter inspirations. I already did mine but it gives me good ideas for next year! Can’t wait to see what you have done.
