A Choose a lightweight planter with holes in the bottom for drainage or a wonderful clay planter made of real terracotta.  Either way get a plastic liner that slips in and out of the decorative container.

This allows you to switch the planting easily as the seasons change.
Use all purpose potting soil and fill the bottom of the planter with our pot filler, packing peanuts, corks, crushed cans or anything light that will take up space, not add weight and help so you don't need to use as much soil.  Minimizing the weight will really help to prolong the life of the planter.

Mix in slow release fertilizer which provides nutrients to the plants for several months.  Moisten the potting soil well.

Select plants according to preferred light exposure and how frequently you will be able to water.  Space them closely for a full look and of course add something to trail over the planters edge.
