I love to use conversation pieces from a collection, memorabilia or souvenirs from our travels, when I "scape" a table. It adds a homey, personal touch that guests enjoy beyond the traditional floral accents we're accustomed to. And it most definitely sparks conversation! I purchased these two hand-carved wooden fish from a beach artisan on the island of Tortola many years ago. If you see something you like, grab it! You never know where or when you'll be able to use it. And it will bring back wonderful memories for years to come.
