Glass Star Bowl

Use a glass bowl in the shape of a star to decorate your dining room table, or place it in another room of your home. Put small floating candles inside the glass star bowl to freshen the air with a scented candle. Alternatively, use a candle that is color coordinated to the room. The glass star bowl can also be filled with potpourri, candy or small chocolates.


Glass Bowl Wedding Centerpieces

Fill glass bowls for wedding/shower table centerpieces or for general decorations. Place fresh or silk flowers with short stems in a glass bowl with or without adding water. Use the colors the bride has chosen as her wedding colors. When hosting a kitchen bridal shower or as a general kitchen/dining room display, put food items in a glass bowl. You can put whole lemons or limes inside the glass bowl, or slice up lemons and put them in a glass bowl in water. Add a flower or two to the fruit centerpiece.


Creative Decoration Ideas to Fill Glass Bowls

Think outside the box when filling glass bowls for unusual decorations. Put a variety of feathers, small stuffed animals or seashells in the glass bowl. For a beach theme, add pebbles of different sizes, shapes and colors. You can purchase pebbles/stones at craft stores and some dollar stores.
