Correct option is
C

the floral teacups

There are two numbers in Noun-Number: Singular and Plural. When we speak about one person / thing, we use the noun in singular form. When we speak about more than one person / thing, we use the noun in plural form. 
In the sentence given, we are referring to 'objects' which implies that the noun in the blank should be a plural one. In the options given, 'the pot' is singular so option D is incorrect. Options A and B are also incorrect because they are singular.
Hence, the correct answer is C) The floral teacups (plural).
