  • To create a vibrant and colorful look, a table is covered with glasses of different sizes filled with colorful sports drinks (food coloring stains glass). Add colored glass plates and use large glass marbles as the finishing touch on top of napkins wrapped simply in ribbon.
  • Plain glass cylinders lined with paper, covered with stickers and topped with a floral cage create funky vases for masses of carnations. Feathers tied together with wire top each arrangement for a whimsical touch.
  • Wide ribbon pinned around the base of several sheets of wheat grass (available at health-food stores) and flowers tucked inside water tubes create a garden-themed tabletop.
