Then, decorating with flowers using different kinds of glass vases. The idea is to place a smaller vase with flowers in it (or as seen here, several glass tubes) into a larger vase and fill the space in between with your sea treasures.

It's a toss up between the peony with the shells in the round bowl and the square with the driftwood.

I love the last two, but the one with driftwood and vases in the middle is my favorite. I found this rather strange bowl at a thrift store the other day. It is kind of donut shaped with a big hole in the middle. I'm looking for a vase that will fit in the hole to hold a bamboo plant and then want to fill the bowl with shells. Wouldn't that be lovely?
