Luminary Bags - This size ok and how many?
Posted 18 June 2007 - 05:03 PM
I bought 100 luminary bags on ebay but to my surprise they are really small. (5x eight). Guess I should have read the description instead of just looking at their photos which looked normal enough.
Here's a picture of them next to a regular size lunch sack from Oriental Trading Co. Originally, I bought a package of 12 Fushia & 12 Orange & 12 white bags from Oriental Trading Co ($5.90), but thought all white will look better with our green/blue color theme.
Do you think they will be ok? They seem large enough to fit a votive/sand, but I'm worried they will look silly on the ground around the pool/walkways. Do I need to fold over the tops to make them sturdier?
I have 60 votive candles with Maye, but can bring more (100 bags).
How many did you use and did you feel like it was enough or did you wish you had more/less?

I used 100 bags at the Oceana Terrace. I think it was a perfect amount. They went around the pool, around the palm trees, around the edge and down the stairs to the bathroom. I really don't think it matters what size you use. Also, the only embellishment mine had was a decorative edge on the top. I think simple is better when it comes to these- because you are using so many. FYI I bought a package of 100 bags at Meijer (grocery store) for $1.97.

We used a decorative edge cutter and took about 2 inches off the top of our bags. I think the shorter length is nice...
