Paper Umbrella Section: Large selection of Chinese Japanese Umbrellas and Parasols, Paper Lantern I got the large ones.

      Also, I was wrong about where I got the lanterns from, I also got those from Asain Ideas as well. I accidently ordered the nylon ones (tacky!) and they returned & sent the rice paper ones to me for free shipping!!

      Just in case anyone wants to know where I got the freeze dried rose petals, they were from Petal Garden Freeze Dried Rose Petals - Petal Garden and I got 112 cups for $219 and it was the perfect amount...any less would have been way too few...the beach is breezy so you lose about 1/2 in the wind so to still have a good amount you need to order extra. The florist wanted over $1,000 for the same amount of normal rose petals and these looked way better for way less. Be sure to order the samples b/c the color I ended up going with was not my first choice looking online.
      Thanks for all your suggestions! My colors are hot pink as well. Which color did you choose for the rose petals? $200 is tons better than $1000! That's ridiculous!

          Thanks for the tip on the rose petals! I would have been so sad if I got there and ended up having to pay over $1000 when I could have gotten them for so much less.

                      I used the coral color...the fuschia ones they sent looked very dried out an almost white in the sample pack. The coral ones were much more pink!
