Trendspotting: Head-Shaped Planters

If terra cotta planters in the shape of a head conjure images of chia pets, then you  haven't seen 
them lately!
The New Orleans Museum of Art recently commissioned flower arrangements in head-shaped containers for The Garden Club luncheon, and now you can have your own piece of New Orleans flair right here at Parterre!  
Head Planter, $48/ea
Our version of the planter is stylized and comes in terra cotta, which will gain patina with age.  Try topping them with flowers or succulents (or ferns, if you have a sense of humor).  Use one as a statement piece, or group several for more impact.  Ballard Designs has already picked up on the trend, and is featuring a classical terra cotta bust planter in their latest catalog.  Luckily, you can get the same great style right here in Monroe!

Here's how we would use them:
