A Cup of Tea Planter


A Cup of Tea Planter


This Mother’s Day Planter is for the mom who loves to peruse specialty tea shops and collect exotic blends in pretty foil packets. She has every type of diffuser to enjoy her favorite teas and a special to-go mug she totes with her everywhere she goes.

Try creating a planter that has herbs meant for brewing such as this one with Chamomile, Lemon Balm and Peppermint. If you can’t find a wire frame in the shape of a tea cup you can create this is a vintage tea pot you scored at the flea market.

A special touch is to add a tea diffuser or use an ‘Everything Spoon’ like I did. This special spoon is from Ganz and it’s a Tablespoon Measure, Teaspoon and Tea Bag holder all in one.


One Lucky Lady Planter

Red, white and black plants are combined together in this themed Mother’s Day Planter that’s perfect for that mom that loves to try her luck. I used a Black Mondo Grass, Red and White Verbena’s, Red Geraniums, Bacopa and a Dracena spike for this design.

Smoothie Planter

For the mom who takes her health and fitness seriously! In between running off to yoga or training for her next half marathon, she’s always whirring up a smoothie concoction on her way out the door.

This Mother’s Day Planter combines a Brazelberries ‘Raspberry Shortcake’ shrub with strawberries and two kinds of mint. This new variety of raspberries is perfect for patio pots so she won’t have to go very far to blend up her morning shake.
