    Hello ladies! Ok so I had so many ideas for my center pieces I had to do some demos and need your advise on which one or two looks the best!
    I got all the material and fish for under $10 a piece.
    The vase and tea lights are from Ikea.
    The palm leafs, blue rose petals, and starfish are from oriental trader.
    The shells and vase lights are from Michael’s.
    The faux flowers and blue and clear stones are from dollar tree.
    The beta is from Petsmart but I am hoping to go to a local pet store to get a better bulk price.
    Please let me know what you think. Also should I stick to one idea or use two?

      I really like the first one with the shells and the starfish. They are really great, what a cute idea

        I love the first one ... but how are you getting the betas to Punta Cana?

        Sounds like a customs nightmare, and they don't have long shelf-lives anyway. Just a thought.

        Unless this is for your AHR instead of the DW.

          I love all of them- but I think I like the 5th one best -the clear with the fish in it-- so original!!! -- but it's a win-win- they are all beautiful!

            I like the 1st and the last ones. Oh, but with no fish.

                What are you going to do with all the left over fish? Sorry I'm such a sissy, but I feel so bad for them because that is not ideal housing for them. My cousin did this for her wedding and trust me, no one wants to take them home. I think most of them got killed.

                I like the first one though. It's pretty but maybe a floating candle instead?

                  I like photo 6. Can you use sand at your AHR? That might add some od the dimension that the flowers would. Either way any of them would be great.

                  Is there a waterproof light in the vase?

                      Believe me I total understand I kept the beta from my demos and was going to return the goldfish to Petsmart. However my god daughter has given them a good home. I am hoping to do a center piece game and give them away. If people don’t take them I’d hope to return them the fish. Perhaps I’ll do half fish and half floating candles or flowers. Thanks for you feed back!
