Flowers, shells, or other bowl fillers
If you’re having a party, a wedding, or another celebration, why make things hard on yourself? You’ve already got plenty to do, sending the invitations, preparing or ordering food, and tending to the guests. When it comes to decorating the tables it will be as easy as you can possibly imagine. There’s one table accent that you can choose, which can be made in seconds, and offers you thousands of options. A stacked fishbowl centerpiece is spectacular for a wedding, a summer pool party, or nearly any other special occasion.
Small goldfish bowls are not expensive so they’re great for nearly any celebration. The best goldfish bowls are ones that are ball-shaped. Purchase one fishbowl as the base of the centerpiece, and then buy diminishing sizes. A good combination is a large one, a medium-size bowl, and a small one. The bowls don’t absolutely have to be goldfish bowls; they can be other roundish bowls, like ivy bowls, which are able to be stacked.
It’s only going to take you a few seconds to stack bowls but it might take a minute for you to decide on what you want to put into each bowl. There are any number of things that can decorate each bowl, including silk or real flowers, pine cones, leaves, marbles, craft butterflies, or wadded fabric. Each bowl doesn’t have to match the others; you can create a different scene or arrangement in each bowl.
Lay the large bowl on the table, put in the embellishments, and stack another bowl on top. Fill it with the things that you want, and stack the next bowl. Continue to stack and fill goldfish bowls until the stack is as tall as you want it to be. If the tower is tall, use glue dots to hold the bowls to each other. Depending on how you stack the bowls, and what you fill them with, you can create any number of arrangements on the wedding or party table.
When you stack bowls until you end up with a tiny one on top, and fill each bowl with garland, you can create the look of a Christmas tree. Fill each bowl with flowers to craft a flower tower. When the bowls are filled with sand, red and white or blue and white fabric – or even shells – you can create the look of a towering lighthouse. A topper for the arrangement can be anything from a glass ball to a flat piece of wood.
Make single bowls to set around the place, and the towering bowls in the middle, to create a beautiful centerpiece with matching accents. The whole thing is stunning and the look is perfect for nearly any special occasion.
