Easter, and spring in general, has us in the mood for pastel planters. Here are our favorites in subtle sherbet shades that won't overpower your flowers.

Above: Ceramicist Elizabeth Benotti hand forms these pleasingly pale mini planters in her New Hampshire studio. Available by custom order, her Pinched Porcelain Cup Planters come in peach pink, sage, sky, mustard, and purple gray colors in a satin finish, as well as glossy white; $34.
