Bubbles of Joy - Part 2
When it comes to great modern decorating, glass bubble bowl vases are wonderful if not obvious choices. As the name suggests, the glass curves into a bubble-like sphere with an opening at the top. Whether you’re going for playful or dramatic, creating centerpieces with these bowls is easy when paired with your favorite items. You can brighten up a room by filling the bowl with colorful stones, vase fillers, seashells or fresh flowers. The encompassing glass makes it great for floating candles or pillar candles. You could also gather a collection of bowls to set up a candy buffet or to display novelty items. They also make great terrariums for all kinds of plants: drought-tolerant plants like succulents and cacti, or submersible freshwater plants like marimo moss balls and java ferns. Best of all, bubble bowls are a classic choice for keeping live fish!
Bubble Bowls as Terrariums
These bowl vases are natural choices for terrarium growing and planting because the glass creates the perfect encompassing environment for preserving humidity. Unlike other types of vases, bubble bowls are more protective of it's contents. They are easier to handle and less likely to tip over and spill. This also makes bubble bowls great for long-term indoor gardening and indoor plant decor.
The example above shows a collection of air plants and succulents arranged in an artistic fashion for display. You can definitely create your own with perfect ease if you purchase your own starter set of seasonal terrarium plants and pair them with our excellent selection of bubble bowl sizes.
