It’s so easy to make! Here’s what you need:
- A large globe vase or fishbowl (mine is just under one foot tall by one foot wide)
- Potting soil
- Flowers (something tropical works best since there’s no drainage and it can be humid inside the vase)
- Glass beads, rocks, etc.
The flowers I used are begonias. I’ll be honest, the Bachman’s garden expert told me they wouldn’t do very well in this set up and to choose a tropical plant, but I loved their coloring and bought them anyway. The plant isn’t doing all that wonderfully at the moment, so if it dies I’ll take my own advise and update it with a tropical plant.
There you have it- a much longer lasting centerpiece than cut flowers. I must say it looks pretty awesome on our dining room table!
