We live in Boston, but not downtown so it feels like the suburbs. However, we have a narrow balcony as if we lived downtown. What’s a girl to do with her plants and wineglass? Problem solved:
When planting your flowerpots, leave room for a tile where you can then put your drink! I got these round tiles at my local thrift shop. There are some beautiful ones on etsy if you have money to spend. I leveled the dirt and then just set the tile on top. Now I can enjoy my plants AND a drink on the balcony. Celebrate the day!
