Candles shaped like starfish, shells, hearts, sand dollars or dolphins are ideal for making wedding reception centerpieces with a seashell theme. Everything that you need is available online.
Choose enough shells and glass pieces or other colorful additions to fill the bottom of each bowl, and thoroughly wash the items to remove accumulated dust or other particles. Fill the bowls with distilled water to avoid mineral stains, and add two to three floating candles before the party begins. They will look beautiful under all lighting levels.
