Trend Alert: 10 Ways to Decorate with Glass Globes

Wedding trends come and go, but some décor elements have serious staying power – such as candles, glass votives, and flowers. To combine all three of these design details into one, couples should consider decorating their sophisticated, modern celebrations with glistening glass orbs filled with petals and candles. These small glass globes can create a large impact and be used in a variety of ways throughout the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.

If you'd like ambient lighting surrounding you and your beloved as you recite your vows, suspend glass spheres filled with tea lights from the ceremony structure. Delight guests visiting the escort card table with a striking tree-like arrangement showcasing gorgeous blooms that suspend glass globes filled with flower petals, and embellish your towering reception centerpieces with cascading orbs presenting ambient candlelight. If you'd rather not have glass globes on every table, create a striking ceiling treatment to serve as an exquisite focal point during your rehearsal dinner or reception.
