15 Beautiful Container Garden Ideas



In fact, the weather this past weekend in Connecticut was perfect.

It’s finally starting to feel like spring around here.

We were more than happy to spend a lot of time outdoors.

The patio cushions were dusted off and brought out – along with a lot of  sweeping and general back yard sprucing.

Now I feel more than ready to get all our empty garden containers filled and planted.

In case you too are looking for a little garden inspiration –

Here are 15 beautiful container garden ideas to inspire your next outdoor project.

Container Garden Ideas and Inspiration


With  my love for blue and white pieces, you’d think I had a whole outdoor collection going on.

I don’t!

But I think I need to remedy this immediately!

The Versailles planters from Frontgate are a standout classic.

Can never go wrong with these.

The local nurseries are now all (thankfully) open and I’m sure we won’t be the only people paying them a visit this week.

In the meantime, I took to the internet to find some new and fresh ideas for our garden.

There’s SO many unique and beautiful container garden ideas out there, it’s got me feeling extra motivated.

Once we get started, I’ll be sure to update you on our progress – probably over on Instagram stories!

Beautiful container garden ideas don’t need to be limited to just the ground!

Have a look at my friend Elizabeth’s gorgeous window boxes!

Most growing plants can thrive in small containers, pots and planters.
