Any luck Jenny? If all else fails, you can always use the starfish to chuck at that lady at work! HAHA LOL!!

I have actually been thinking about ways to incorporate a starfish into the guys boutonniers but have only gotten as far as thinking about it. Maybe I will start playing a bit too, and I'll get my Mom to help since she is so creative it is sickening. Maybe with some of the ideas posted and a few of us working on some, we will find something that works well.

(At least they seem smaller in my head)

Here is a pic from ebay of ones that I have

Ewww. That pic didn't turn out so good. It looks good in the smaller icon. I guess I need some natural light to get it in focus properly.

I know this is an old thread (over a year old), but incase other new brides are reading it, here is my inspiration. Don't know where I got the pic from. Maybe a Facebook Group?

I am just getting ready to work on the bout for my daughters wedding - she would like to use shells for the groomsmen and a starfish for the groom. Thanks for all the great ideas - you girls are so creative!
