    Decorate Bubble Bowls with Flowers

  1. 1

    Lay two to three long pieces of decorative grass on a flat surface. Lay green florist wire next to each blade of grass, and cut the wire so that it is the same length. Use a hot glue gun to glue the wire to 1 side of the grass and allow the glue to dry.

  2. 2

    Arrange the wire so that it wraps around the glass, creating a framework outside. Allow the blades of grass to cross each other and loop around the bubble bowl, making sure that the wire is always facing the centre of the bowl and the grass faces the inside of the bowl glass.

  3. 3

    Fill the bubble bowl with water, and place a daisy or rose inside, so that it floats inside the water. For a larger centrepiece, set a whole bouquet of flowers inside the bowl so that the flowers peek over the top of the bowl. Place the bubble bowl centrepiece on a mirrored plate and surround it with candles, rose petals, or confetti.

    Other Ways to Decorate Bubble Bowls

  1. 1

    Place the bubble bowl on a flat surface. Place decorative rocks or stones in the bottom of the bowl, and then fill the bowl halfway with water.

  2. 2

    Place floating candles on the surface of the water, or even add fish to the water to make the bubble bowl look like an actual fish bowl. If you use fish, make sure that you are using the proper type of water and rocks so the fish are not harmed.

  3. 3

    Wrap tulle or other type of fabric, a garland of flowers, or a wreath around the bowl and place it in the centre of the table.

Tips and warnings

  • Instead of decorative grasses, use grapevine branches in the bubble vase centrepieces for a more fall, rustic look.
  • Be careful if you are using candles around the flower garland or greenery, as they are highly flammable.
