    Not a big fan of umbrella tables, but this provides a shaded outdoor seating/conversation area that looks useful and relaxing. The weight of the dirt and plants in the pot keep the umbrella from blowing away (?? We'll see.) 53 favorite backyard projects | Step by step project: Planter umbrella stand |

    Cute idea-- Use a big flower pot outside as a patio umbrella holder!

    Step by step project: Planter umbrella stand Strong wind is no friend to most patio umbrellas, but it would take a hurricane to budge this setup. The umbrella rises from a sleeve centered in a flowerpot that's filled with three layers of material: a bottom layer of lava rock to hold the sleeve in place, a center layer of concrete for extra rigidity, and a top layer of planting mix. When there's no need for shade, just lift out the umbrella -- the plants should mask the sleeve.

LOVE the umbrella nestled down in the planter! Cut 2-inch ABS pipe to the height of the pot. Center it inside and anchor in place with a layer of gravel on the bottom, quick-setting concrete in the middle, and soil on top. Plant the pot with flowers, and slide the umbrella into the pipe sleeve. A 5-foot length of pipe and 50-pound bag of Quikrete Fast-Setting concrete mix.. about 11$ total.
