plants are usually a lovely contemporary look for centrepieces. these lightbulb terrariums are so chic looking.. it would be nice to place a group of these in the middle of a table to double as favours.
they could certainly start some interesting conversations. i can see it now.. a hipster sitting there discussing how this centrepiece idealises a consumer's relationship to nature. perhaps interpret how nature can co-exist with a ubiquitous technology modern humanity cannot live without. or how consumerism has become the most common connection to the natural world.
anyway, back to reality.. they're really simple to make.. i think the hardest part is just emptying out the bulbs without resulting in bits of glass embedded into your palms.
i really like these. so cute!
