We Love: Terrariums

Large or small, succulent or pine-filled, we love terrariums. Possibly the perfect décor choice for weddings when the natural world isn’t quite so green, these centerpieces are fit for celebrations in nearly any style (rustic? Sure. Southwestern? Of course. Modern, elegant, vintage? Check.). Our favorite option is certainly the succulent-filled traditional route, particularly in winter months, but terrariums are also suited to flowers, moss and greenery galore. Here are a few bits of inspiration to help you get your glass-covered planning under way.

The combination of antlers, feathers and succulents in this terrarium centerpiece make for the ultimate in rustic chic table decor.

Meanwhile, these simple, straightforward collections of succulents would make for a simple terrarium-style DIY, as would the stone-filled example below.

Planning a winter wedding with all the trimmings and trappings of the season? Terrariums are still definitely an option – just pile them high with evergreen filler and pine cones.

Because, really, it’s nearly impossible to turn down billy balls. The contrast between the bright yellow and slightly less edgy green makes for a fun and modern terrarium.

Both the terrariums above have a sweet, garden-centered and almost fairy-tale feel to them. The delicate greenery and flowers, accompanied by the unique shapes of their glass covers, are a perfect combination of eye-catching and feminine.
