Bring nature inside with these beautiful topiaries found at Shoppe, $18 to $69

I love these topiaries that come in various sizes spotted at Shoppe Birmingham. Bringing elements of nature into your decor livens up any room. I would use one next to my kitchen window or three in varying sizes on my kitchen island. The height and the color is visually appealing with an added  bonus of being easy to maintain.

This great-looking lettuce edge planter by Jenny Smith can also be found at Shoppe Birmingham. With its vibrant shade of green, it’s easy to add a dose of summer to any space.
