Usually reception centerpieces feature flowers arranged in pretty vases, but lately, we've been noticing a recent trend: florals enclosed in glass vessels. We love this idea and here's why — by arranging the blooms and greenery beneath glass, you're essentially creating a tabletop vignette that will compel guests to take a closer look. Here are our favorite creative takes on this new floral trend:

Glass Display Box (Modern): For something cool and unexpected, fill glass boxes with spiky air plants — the modern-desert vibe was so perfect for this couple's Palm Springs celebration.
