What if you swapped the shells in the large vase for either starfish or sand dollars to make it more cohesive with your favors? I really, really like the coral branches but it looks a little sparse…could you maybe add more branches than what is in the picture or maybe incorporate some in a khaki color as well?

 

Table numbers: what if you used your latterns and then printed a number on vellum paper and made lumaneries out of them. The light would shine through and the vellum would help give it a soft, filtered look.

Or, could you use fishing line to hang the number from one of the branches in the vase? It would add a bit of a floating, whimsical look to the table by having something light and airy.

Or, could you use some glass etching stuff to etch the numbers directly onto the vases? The only downside is that unless someone wants numbers on the vases it might be hard for you to resale/reuse.

Or, (sorry, your picture gives me a lot of inspiration) could you use a dowel rod painted khaki or white and stick in down into the sand in your vase with a cardstock printed number attached to the top. It would prevent having something else clutter up the table but still serve the purpose. Oh, oh, oh…you could make them look kind of like beachy lifeguard signs.

Thanks, and good point about the oil spill. Perhaps you could supplement it with some realistic looking fake ones? I’m from the middle of Kansas (smack in the middle of America) so anything beachy around here is fake…that might be a faux paux in an actual coastal area. Who knows, I’m gonna playing the redneck card.
