We’ve been toying with the idea of using succulents as place cards for our Christmas Eve dinner and wondering what we could do to make them a bit more festive. Fortunately for us, our friend Ernesto (who owns The Oak Leaf) has come up with a new twist on the terrarium for the holiday season – glass terrarium ornaments!
These one-of-a-kind gems also make great gifts for the plant lover on your shopping list, a secret Santa or for that someone who’s impossible to shop for. And there’s no need to put these ornaments away once the holidays are over since they’ll stay alive all year long!
Each terrarium ball is thoughtfully, carefully and uniquely created by The Oak Leaf just before it’s shipped out. That way, the plant is fresh and has been recently watered (which is great since we tend to kill any live plant that enters our home within days!)
You can find these lovelies at The Earnest Sewn Jean shop in New York or online at Etsy – but hurry since we hear they’re selling quickly. If you’d like to customize your own terrarium balls, you can contact Ernesto directly at email@example.com.
Are you adding any new festive touches to your holiday table or tree this year?
