What Houzz contributors are saying:

A collection of potted ferns and grasses adorns a vintage mantelpiece in the home of Mikey Fuller, of the Shabby French Cottage. Opt for similar aged terra-cotta pots to add extra character to a display.
If you have cold winters, don't leave filled pots outside that have the potential to break in freezing temperatures. When left out in the elements, pots will expand when frozen and then shrink back with a thaw. This can cause cracks, especially with terra-cotta and ceramic pots. Your safest bet is to clean them up and bring them inside.
5. Refresh your mantel. Take everything off your mantel, and wipe down the surface. Bring in something fresh and green — potted ferns, blooming bulbs or cut branches will last longer than cut flowers. If you have a mirror hanging above the mantel, clean it as well. Add a few scented or plain beeswax candles as a finishing touch.
