For this mantelpiece display, bits of sea glass piled into glowing votive holders share space with coral, shells, sand dollars, and vintage glass bottles. The color scheme, moving from blue and green to pink and purple, mimics a beach horizon at sunset. These votives can be created by placing a candle inside a glass holder and setting it in a larger glass vessel, Fill the space between with shards.
Make your wishes transparent with tinted glass plates and goblets -- in lieu of heavy crystal and traditional china -- that mimic the look of sea glass. Add a swell arrangement of sweet peas, tweedia, and muscari to complete the effect. To embellish place cards with streamers, cut slits in a card with a utility knife and weave ribbons through. Wrap around a napkin, leaving ends long for a loose, layered effect.
