We recently had a work function and I needed to make some quick table decorations, without breaking the bank in the process, and within a limited amount of time. Here's how I managed to do this!


Approximate Time: 15 minutes



    Empty Fish Bowl

  1. Put the glass gems in the bottom of the fish bowl.
  2. Fish Bowl with Gems

  3. Add the decorative glass sand and mix the sand with the glass gems.
  4. Fish Bowl with Gems and Pink Sand


  5. Fill the fish bowl up to 2 inches from the top with clear water. When filling the bowl, some of the glass sand might be disturbed and float to the top, but it will settle at the bottom of the bowl again.
  6. Fish Bowl filled with water with Gems and pink sand.

  7. Cut off the stems of the flowers, cut them off as close as possible to the base of the flower.
  8. Cut stem off Flower head

  9. Place the flowers in the fish bowl.
  10. Add Flowers to Fish Bowl Table Decor

  11. Add the floating candles.
  12. Add Candles to Fish Bowl


  13. Set the table with a suitably colored table cloth, overlay, and serviettes.
