(Great gifts for everything from a casual garden party to an elegant dinner party)
Terrariums are gorgeous, moody, minature little universes that you can fashion in a million different ways. Keep it light and beachy with air plants and fan coral or shells. Channel your inner forest nymph and go with dense rich green moss and toadstools. Or, throw in some little army guys or miniature dinosaurs and present kids with a fantasy world that they can reign over. These take just a few moments to put together, but the results are nothing short of magical. And, by the way, they make a great activity for a party, as well as a takeaway gift. Because all of those ingredients can be purchased in bulk, you can cover a large table with brown craft paper, present those ingredients in large bowls and provide spoons to use as little trowels so that your guests can make their own little kingdoms!
