      Can you use regular food coloring?

      You might ask your local florist what they use and see if you can buy some from them (or elsewhere) to take down with you.

      For my AHR my florist is using that dry pellet stuff that turns into jelly when you add water. I comes in turquoise. That might be a good option so you don't have to worry about a liquid leaking...

        Just buy those tablets that you can add to children's bath water to make it a different colour, that way it is easy to travel as it is not a liquid. You can get them at any walmart.

          Just about anything will work that you can get in to a liquid form. Like food coloring or get some of those Easter egg dye kits that are out right now. That would totally work!

            Food coloring works. It fades over time, but nothing you'd need to worry about. We took all the chemicals from a guy in my lab & made replicas of them. Then we put water & food coloring in the replicas. It took weeks, but his expression when he noticed was worth it. We still have the bottles with food coloring in them. They are lighter now (2 years later) but they are still colored.

                Here is a picture of the prank. The bottles on the right are real chemicals. The ones on the leftare food coloing and water.

                    The beads in the photo above our Deco Beads. We are using them for my reception too! My mom is a florist and I went with her last week to pick up some stuff for our AHR and ended up getting the deco beads. We experimented with then last week and they are so neat!

                      If you do food coloring there is a set for neon colors I think and the blue in that would be perfect.
