3 unexpected places to display plants at home

When I buy or receive a plant for my house, I tend to put them in the same spots—on the dining table, to the side of my TV (where my kids can’t reach it), or on my desk at work. But since flowers and plants make everything better, I wanted to share a few not-so-typical places to put them. Once you try it, you’ll never resort to the same old, same old spots again!

3 unexpected places to display plants at home

1. In an unused fireplace — Whether you have a fireplace and never use it or you have one that’s only used in the winter, take advantage of this tucked away spot to fill it with greenery. We partnered with ProFlowers to provide the pieces you see in this post and I love this beautiful, tropical house plant for spots like this. It adds color, texture, and body to an otherwise cold and empty space. We added some books underneath for height and some string lights for mood and a pretty glow come nighttime.

2. On a bar cart — Usually you put bar stuff on a bar cart. So I love the addition of this vibrant floral to add a little color and life to an area usually full of glassware. It makes it feel a bit more cozy and offers a nice pop of color to your cart!

3. On top of a chair — Plants on chairs might be one of my favorite new home decor tricks. It draws attention to your plant and adds height to a smaller pot using an item you already have lying around your home to elevate it. We put this Super Mom Azalea (past season, find azaleas here) on top of a decorative box to add additional texture and height and really make this little lady feel special.

Plants and flowers bring me so much joy that I love all these additional spots to place them so they can flourish! They’re also one of my favorite gifts to give this Mother’s Day because you’re adding a little living piece of décor to a loved one’s home!

  1. Hello! Oh my gosh I LOVE these!!! I want to move in. Is the top splotchy green your wall? Ah! I’m going to paint my bedroom and I keep changing my mind about wallpaper or paint!
    I’ve linked your blog from mine! It’s on my links page. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this blog. So glad to find you.
    I’m also a blogger. I blog about art/lifestyle and diy mostly. I was searching for beautiful style blogs that I enjoy so that I can expand my blog community. <3
    I'm looking for any blog-community building advice you could offer as well! I think it's more tough when one has their own domain; it's standalone from the community. I've heard of bloggers promoting content through blog listings like bloglovin', as well as sites where you can earn promotional opportunities for having good content content like Advowire ( Do you use any of these sites to promote content or to collaborate with other bloggers? Do you know of other sites/resources you’d like to recommend?
    Thank you so much for reading! Hope to hear from you. xox

  2. I love these ideas! I’ve never considered myself to have a green thumb, but have been loving all the spring blooms. I love this inspiration and can’t wait to fill my home with plants.

  3. This is all so gorgeous and you are right, the chair is such a good idea particularly with such a pretty vase. Can you tell where you found this cutie ?? Merci ?

  4. Such lovely inspiration! I’ve just rediscovered the beauty of having plants and flowers in my home! I just ordered the Super Mom Azaleas, I just had to have that gorgeous vase for my daughters room!
