Tabletop Planters: 12 Pots That Add Flair To Your Home Decor

There are many options for indoor planters, and while I’m on the hunt for new tabletop planters, I want to share some of my favorite ones with you.

For the past few months, I’ve been adding more greenery to my indoor space: Pothos, Monstera deliciosa, String Of Pearls, and a Snake Plant are some of my new roommates. Finding the ideal tabletop planters is harder than I thought.

Click here to jump ahead to our list of favorite tabletop planters!

I love all of my greenery but have also ended up with the most random collection of ugly grow pots. So, I decided to create this round-up of decorative tabletop planters for houseplants to motivate myself, and hopefully, you, to add a bit of pizazz to your home decor.

A decorative pot is a key factor when displaying your plants – it’s like dressing them up. You also want to make sure the planters play along nicely with your home’s decor.

You want to pay special attention to the size so the grow pot or root ball nestles comfortably inside. If you plan on moving your plants around, consider some of the attractive, lightweight plastic options on the market.

The planters below would fit comfortably and look fabulous on a table, credenza, buffet, or shelf.

This product guide was originally published in September 2017. We’ve updated the products on 09/04/21 & again on 11/6/23 with the latest shopping links!
