Dolphin Plate

Ocean/Dolphin Theme Cake... Weird Question...?

I bought real seashells from a dollar store today, to use for my ocean/dolphin theme birthday cake for my friend.
I don't plan on putting the seashells (they're real) ON the cake, but on the plate near the cake (more than a few inches away)... surrounded by plastic dolphins and fish.
Is this safe?
I know it's a weird question but is it safe to put them near something that is going to be eaten?
I tried to find fake/plastic seashells but I couldn't find any.

Using the shells is no problem, but I would take a little precaution before use. I would wash them in hot, soapy dishwater and rinse them in especially hot water that I put a little bleach into. Let them air dry, and check to make sure there are no additives like that fake coloring they put on coral. The shells should be safe, and you really do not want fake ones. They would look really nice on sugar that you color to look like sand. Check the color chart on the box of food colors. You just put the sugar in a jar and add a few drops. Shake like crazy and let dry. If you want blue water look, you could color more sugar or coconut for wavy water. There are white sandy beaches, so maybe you don't want to color it.

Hope this gives you an idea - your theme is really creative and your friend will love it.
