These pots would be so nice for a backyard barbecue party for the July holiday, and could serve as a place for real plants or even silk flowers or plants. Or fill with ice to hold a bottle of pop, or some fruit. You could also add some gems with glue around the rim or even in the shape of a star on the side. Super!
