As Candle Holders

For an evening or night event, they can be fashioned as a light source. Light up candles underneath or string fairy lights, and it will give off a romantic glow. For safety’s sake, it is better to opt for battery candles or fairy lights. 

As Centrepieces

A bigger terrarium can be used to display table numbers and also as a table centrepiece. You can decorate it with moss, ferns, shells and stones and even add a little faux snow for an enchanted fairyland look.

Instead of choosing to opt for a single, large centrepiece, you can go for multiple terrariums of different sizes and shapes. You can fill them up with faux or real flowers which match the colour theme and tone of the event.
