Create a dry "aquarium" by arranging assorted shells inside a see-through container. Make sure they're not too cramped to show off their forms. Beside it, line three or four small tinted bowls or vases. Fill them with pebbles or coarse sands and erect white candles in the middle. You might want to use a floral frog to ensure the candles won't topple over.

Choose five to six clear glasses and vessels then fill them with different kinds of beads, and sequins. You may fill each one with the same type and color (purple sequins) or combination (red seed beads and silver sequins). Leave some vessels empty. You may also throw in texture-rich decor like peacock feathers for contrast.
