The sake cup. I actually saw this on etsy awhile ago, and copied the idea for my two succulents that I bought last weekend. I found some beautiful blue and white cups and planted the two little guys in them. I can't find the picture right now, but here are some sake cups to inspire you - this was a super easy, quick and cute project!
The vintage planter. Another completely economical, fun and funky way to go. Etsy is, of course, a great way to find some ideas!
The apartment garden. I am so in love with this idea. I first saw it on Design Sponge (I think) and have the website bookmarked for the next time I feel like whipping out the plastic. Great gift idea for anyone in the family and pretty inexpensive, too.
The air plant (bromeliad). I don't know much about these guys, but remember seeing these awhile back at the nursery and thinking they were pretty rad. I recall that they might be a bit on the spendy side, so may count as an investment in your plant future.
These here are featured in vintage oak bowls.
The terrarium. My friend Courtney and I have been talking about getting together and making one of these for weeks! We need to get on that. They are so cool, and remind me of a fun science project. There is a great tutorial at Apartment Therapy.

Love the idea of one of these guys, but don't feel like getting your hands dirty? No worries - you can buy one of these adorable orb versions for 28 bucks.
