Some extras you can try:

  • Create more visual interest in your beach party centerpieces by placing the glass bowls at varying heights.  You can pick up some inexpensive candle holders of varying heights and glue them to each glass bowl.  If you pick up glass candle holders from the dollar store, you can use E-6000 glue to glue the glass bowl and candlestick together.  Just be sure to allow it to dry for several hours.  You can also spray paint the candle holders to whatever color you wish to use.
  • If you like, you can place the beach party centerpiece on an unfinished slab of wood and throw some shells around it to add a nice decorative beachy touch to your table.
