Dress tables with sculptural shells and corallike pieces.

Large conch and murex shells with cattleya orchids nestled in their openings and smaller marlin spike shells surround a vase filled with tiny shells and a pillar candle. Painted manzanita branches stand in for real coral. Capiz shells (sold with predrilled holes) are tied to napkins with ribbon; a small branch rests on top. The white-and-brown color scheme suits any season.

Fishbowls and vases display still lifes on brown craft sand. An aqua silk runner suggests water, as do glass chargers and votive holders.

the photos on this site are too small to really see anything. Please make the photos larger, or else make the small photos click through to larger versions.
