8. Leafy Candleholders

Turn each summer meal into a tropics-inspired gathering by wrapping textured plant leaves around a simple glass candle-holder and placing them as a centerpiece at the table.

7. Shelled Pots

Who could stop themselves from collecting all those pretty shells on the shore? A good way to make use of those shells would be to decorate terracotta pots with them. You may leave the pots as is and make it an accent piece for your summer-themed home, or actually make use of it by putting a live plant in it and displaying it in your patio or garden.
