Every year I make this the focal point in my yard.  The bee balm is beautiful this year; hydrangea to the left.  The backdrop is a piece of a very old fence.  The miscelaneous ornaments are old garden tools and horse shoes I have gathered up throughout the  property.  I painted the barn star a few years ago and it is now the rustic look I wanted.  I bought the aluminum spring horse at auction.  
Supertunias is a basket sitting on a fern stand in front of my picket fence.
Hen & Chickens in old work boot.
The container is a steel wheel hub off a tractor/trailer truck.  Very heavy.
The yellow base is a wheel off a John Deere lawn mower.
