Pictures

These things can be displayed near the coffin for all respected people to view, and can set the tone of the service.

Candles  

Many people choose to use candles at funerals. Low light helps to make the service more comfortable, and many people associate candles with funeral services. You can use candles as a way to use shells in your service. You can tie the shell to the ribbon, and then tie the ribbon to the candle. You can also melt the top of the candles and add small shells to them. When the wax hardens, the shell will stick to the candle and give it a kind of coastal air. You may choose to use artificial candles if you prefer or you can use real ones and not light them to keep things safe and within fire code.
