Originally I was planning to make both of them a terrarium, but I had a few macarons laying around per usual, and they were just screaming to be displayed in them!

Now I’m torn on whether these should be serving bowls or terrariums, so I’ll let you decide…

So this is technically a DIY project with a bit of an identity crisis, but you get the idea right? These would be so cute as entertaining bowls or table centerpieces, don’t you think?!

It’s a perfect match with the mid-century vibe back to entertaining with this DIY Serving Tray!

So tell me, what do you think? Are they serving bowls or terrariums? I’m still on the fence and can’t seem to make up my mind.

But whichever you go for, I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do.
