Decorate your tables with some fun-loving beach-themed
centerpieces. Each centerpiece is easy to put together, so
anyone can do them.
1) Buy some children's pail and shovel sets. Use these as
your centerpieces. You can fill them with fresh fruit or
candies (lifesavers would be perfect). You could also
fill them with sand and place several sea shells placed
2) Buy large, pillar candles with sea shells embedded in the
wax. Set the candles in a low, flat dish that contains a bed
3) Fill clear glass bowls with colored water. Layer the bottom
with sea shells and "starfish" (fake of course). Float a candle
on the top.
4) Another bowl idea. Fill with water and tint it blue with food
coloring. Buy some of those fake tropical fish you see in
novelty stores. Float them in the water.
5) Last idea with the bowls :) Place colored sand in the bottom
of the bowl (available at craft stores). Fill with water. Tint it a
light blue if desired. Place a "castle" on the bottom of the bowl
(you can find items such as this at any pet store that sells fish).
Add a bit of fake seaweed for affect.
6) See if you can track down some lighthouses to use as
centerpieces. Check out your local hobby store.
7) Make seashell candles. Use large seashells and fill with
melted beeswax. Insert a wick in the center and let set.
8) Create colored sand bottles. Get some unique shaped
bottles and pour colored sand into them. You can make
some very interesting designs using different colors of sand
(which is available at craft stores). Insert a taper candle into
the top of the bottle.
