I intially wanted to use fish as a centerpiece but that could cause more trouble.

@LD333:  fish is a cool idea for the right theme

We used books and scrabble tiles and a small vase of flowers. The books were fun–lots of people commented on their favorites sitting on different tables.

Frames with pictures?

Chandelier style candelabras with crystals rather than candles?

Vases full of various things–marbles, lemons, etc?

Yeah I second the fruit idea. What about tall, wide vases filled with green apples or limes?

Hm, what about teacups? Random pottery? Skinny vases with just a single paper or fabric flower? Mason jar full of beads/pebbles/silk flowers/ribbon/fabric?
