Urns Add Sophistication

What to do with an urn? 



























How would you fill these urns?














Hadn't thought of doing this with urns.

  1. I was just thinking about this topic the other day! With moving to our new house, I've been thinking about getting black urns for the front porch. Thanks for the inspirational images!

  2. Hi Rita,
    I bet you're wondering why hardly anyone has commented. Well, I have tried many times but it kept saying 'page does not exsist' !! Don't worry. Everyone still loves you.
    I adore urns. I have just bought one exactly the same as the first one but without the plinth. Mine has been shabby chic-d and is rather rusty. I love all of the ones that you have shown and would allow all of them into my garden ! XXXX

  3. hi rita! i love the table using urns as pedestals.

    i love urns, too, and they were one of my first
    purchases for our front porch.

    i love their tone and versatility, but think the
    name is funny.

  4. Love urns and whenever I see two matching I buy two. I would put moss and ferns in the metal urns. I have two outdoor cement urns in my house on my mantle with ferns and I love them. They make a statement without saying tooooo much, Happy weekend, Kathysue

  5. We love all, and I mean ALL, of the same things! I could literally take your blog and copy it to my own most days! Thanks for blogging about all of the beautiful goodies in the world that I don't get a chance to. It's all divine!

  6. Recently, I purchased a pair of faux concrete urns for spring plantings to flank the entrance to my house. Never thought I would as I am not a "faux" person. However, this past winter I lost a concrete urn to excessive freezing temps (cracked). Filled with cascading and colorful blooms, I actually do not notice the faux aspect.

  10. Urns also can be bought in designs that are reminiscent of cathedrals, palaces, temples and castles that are usually dome and steeple shaped.
