I got them 50% off last year in November at hobby lobby. They had a huge selection of styles too.

I got the heart ones on sale at Michaels last year. There were lots of different styles there, but make sure you get what you need as once they are gone from the christmas stock, they don't get more.

 

I was thinking of getting some little bottles to put sand in, but then my Mom saw the orniments at Michaels, and I loved them. The first pic posted with the heart shaped one is what I am handing out.

Thank you! I could not remember where I got the first picture from. wink.gif

What time of the year did you find them on sale at Michaels? Carla wink.gif

They are at Michaels right now actually.

 

Dumb question, because they are such a fine glass, how did you ladies pack them in your suitcases? Plus, I'm planning on putting them in my OOT bags, so would it be one ornament per couple or per person? I'm guessing per person.

We are going to do them per person so that each person can fill them with whatever they like.

We are doing each person as they are the favor for the wedding. The package they come in works well to protect them. I am leaving them in the packaging and putting them in my carry-on.

I will be transporting them down in their original containers since the will take up less room. I am going to use clear boxes which will come flat and I can assemble there and added filler to. If we have room I would much rather package them ahead of time in the clear boxes...

Good idea. Where did you get the clear boxes from?

 

Well, the ornaments got veto'd out. Instead, I'm going to use baby food containers that I'll dress up with ribbon, shells, and starfish. I guess they will travel a little bit better too, because I'm breaking out at the rafters will all the crap I'm hauling down.

    • 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 for Kids.  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    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • 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.
