Coral Centerpieces?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can purchase fake coral large enough to use as a centerpiece ( I would prefer it to be tan or white colored )? I would much rather buy it at a store and not online, so if anyone has seen them at any stores, can you tell me where? Here's an example of what I'm looking for-

Beautiful centerpieces. Did you have any problems with the candles blowing out? I bought votives to place in votive holders, but am worried about the wind. What was your experience?

You may have a problem with Pottery Barn. They had a big sale not to long ago. I got the last of their large Sand dollars and sea urchins. I did not see any coral. Good luck I hope you get it. ITS GETTING CLOSE!

Several of the chain craft stores had coral this year but it may be too late in the season to get as many as you need. Try a ceramic studio, like color me mine or something. You can often get as many as you need and finish as you like. Or google coral mold and make your own.

I ended up getting some maybe a little less than a month ago at JCPenny. They were having a clearance on all their summer home decor and I found tons of coral for about $3 or $5, can't remember. But, it was a great bargain!!!

I have been searching too but have not found a thing anywhere around Philadelphia. I did, however, attempt to make some this weekend based on this article I found...

LIVING : Entertaining : Coral and Buffet Set-Up : DIY Network

 

I bought premixed stucco patch at Lowes and mixed it in a bucket with little bits of water until it formed a thick brownie batter consistency. Then we dipped the sticks in and smeared the goop on with rubber gloves. Some needed a second coat but they definitely look coral-like. I think if I tried wiring some together, dipping them again and maybe giving them a coat of paint, they would look more like the cluster kind like you posted.

I'm going to just put little pieces by candles and seashells on the tables. Hope that helps!
