Using non-aquarium items in aquariums

Okay, so this might sound a bit crazy. I work at Starbucks... and I want to make a Starbucks themed tank using various mugs and cups from Starbucks. They are all plastic or ceramic, so I would assume they are alright to put in the tank, but do I need to do anything specific to them to make sure they are fish-safe? I have some reeeeeally cute ideas including a "spilled" cup of coffee made of brown rocks or gravel. But yeah... how do I make non-aquarium things aquarium safe?

I don't have all of the items yet. But they are going to be Starbucks ceramic mugs and plastic tumblers. You could get an idea off the starbucks website, though I haven't chosen the specific ones I'll be using yet.

I think they will be okay as long as they don't take up too much space in the aquarium and they don't float. Because ceramic cant really hurt a betta

food safe usually equals aquarium safe. I'm looking forward to seeing your tank when it's done!
