Groovy Garden Accessories

Pod Aluminum Planters mid century plant containers

Over at A+R you can find some sweet containers and lights for accessorizing your modern garden.  I am all over this mid-century thing (again) today.  My own aesthetic veers wildly between this and something in a souk.  I struggle to bring it all together.   But I think I could find a place for these containers in a variety of garden styles and the little lights, well, I think they would be perfect for a Dance party evening under the stars, or a kids garden party, or maybe some sort of retro lounge night where friends come over and we drink vintage cocktails in the garden hideaway.  Can all of these things be successfully mixed, — not sure — but I am always up for trying.

The containers are aluminum and suitable for indoor outdoor use. And the lights are solar powered and available in four colors.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

      I am not sure which jar you are referring to, but there is a link to buy all the items in the post at A+R near the top of the post (look for the text that is highlighted orange and click on it).
