The simple, bowl-shaped ceramic planter has been a mainstay for centerpieces and other floral designs for many decades. Although they are usually unobtrusive foundations, the right ones greatly affect the outcome of the finished arrangements.
The small, orange California Pottery planter has been sitting empty on top of the refrigerator for about a month just because I love the blazing orange glaze.
