Add a Touch of the Beach
Go to your local aquarium store or your own fish tank and get some synthetic coral. It lasts longer than real coral, comes in amazing colors, is more eco-friendly and costs a lot less. Try mounting the coral on wooden stands like a pieces of art, or use them as centerpieces for your dining room table. Also, you could try using a giant clam shell as decorative bowl for candy or potpourri.
