Sand, candles and starfish: For a glowing evening, fill hurricane vases with sand and fat white candles. Place the candle keepers in the center of your table, and after your meal, use them to line porch steps or define the edges of a patio or walkway.
Daisies and denim: Dark blue denim serves as a table runner for this casual dinner. Terra cotta pots hold chimneys and candles that seem to grow from the pebbles. Tiny pots of daisies sit atop individual plates.
Edible centerpiece: Distilled water in a clean glass vase shows off scrubbed carrots and kohlrabi with leaves attached, along with large branches of green cherry tomatoes.
