Simple DIY: Flower Pot Table

My husband calls it Porch Therapy. Our family swings, grills and has s’mores on the back porch, reading and homework on the and front.  Outdoor space is essential in our house for relaxation and hospitality. We enjoy a patio at friends, restaurants, Central Market, wherever there is outdoor seating and people watching. This year I got frustrated not having a place to put my cup, glass, water bottle etc.  By placing marble coasters in my flower pots I created an elegant solution.

A simple diy: flower pot table.

Supplies: 1 large flower pot, dirt, flowers and any stone  coaster of your choice.   Stone resists the elements and looks lovely. Make sure you make room in your planter for your coaster. I love the simplicity and so do my guests. I use it in the morning when I’m reading the paper and drinking coffee or in the evening when we gather a crowd. Another great tip: Plastic wine glasses. Family friendly and great for beaches, patios, parks or picnics. 

Enjoy,

    Brilliant! We’ve spent many evenings in “patio therapy” with y’all. Missing those days more now than ever.

      The best part of therapy is the family and friends we gather together! Can’t wait to spend some quality time together soon!
