Mini Sugar Starfish

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever ordered these? There are some I found on Oriental Trading and it comes with 500 starfish. How big are these things? And if you did order them did you use them all?

wow i knew they were tiny, but that's good to know. maybe i'll get 2 or 3 bags instead of 1.

what about the little white sand dollars? has anyone ordered those? i'm figuring they're about the size of a quarter?

We ordered them for my daughter's weddng, and yes, they are very tiny and thin. We've decided to use them like confetti on the tables. Even though there are 500, they won't go very far as they are so small. They are not edible, that is just their name.

The sand dollars are just a little bigger than the size of a quarter

 

I got the 30 starfish assortment (5$), and there were some decent sized ones. They varied from the size of a quarter to like 4 or 5 inches across

 

Natural Starfish Assortment

 

I wouldn't call them sugar starfish. Sugar starfish are thicker and more sturdy (at least from what I know). I don't know what these ones are called. Here's an example of the difference

not sure about the sand dollars but I was going to use them for seat assignments but if they are that small maybe not.

I ordered 200 of the 3/4"-1" version from Ebay and they are small and thin. I was going to get them from OT but I didn't need that many. I was going to return them and get the next size up, but I will just keep them and use them for something.

 

Here is the link for the seller on Ebay:

 

eBay Store - Wagners Southern Store: SPECIALS, STARFISH, SEASHELLS

 

They also have sand dollars and other larger starfish varieties.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good  I enjoyed my stay at both, but personally I liked the ambiance better at Dreams La Romana.  In the past 10 years or so Destination weddings have become very popular and the resorts do 100's each year. 60 guests with approx 30 rooms or so is a great group, but when the resorts have 500+ rooms they do not look at it as a large group. Most resorts are pretty set when it comes to what they offer in their wedding packages, but some may do an upgrade for the bride & groom if it's available. The benefit of doing a group block is you have the opportunity to earn group amenities based on the number of guests & rooms that book at the resort.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
