Fake starfish..?

Recommended Posts

I would love to see some pictures of them, if it is not too much trouble.. I am looking for 4-6 Large ( 8''- 10''  if possible)  Sugar starfish, and then about 30 of the medium to small starfish to decorate the backs of the chairs with.. and they are impossible to find locally here in Canada ... Thank you so much for doing that Sllefebvr!

OMG, you're so wonderful Sllefebvr! Yes, I would love to see pictures of the different starfish and sand dollars. If you could find out if they're made of plastic, resin, etc, that would be helpful too! We don't have a Christmas Tree Shoppe where I live, and I've been searching for a while for fake ones. Thanks so much!

Hey Jennifer,

I saw your post and thought I would comment. Unless I got wrong info, I thought the same...get someone from the States to ship to you but..U.S. Wildlife doesn't allow them to leave the country. So you would have to declare them to be something else...yikes! I know...sucks..can't order from u.s. online either...I read this all on threads from past brides.

 

Michaels does have them...pricey I know but if you use your 40% off coupon, a bag isn't too bad.

guys, i have fake starfish that you can't even tell...i've painted them...some purple and some silver and i've even left a few white...(pics below)

 

i personally have a 'thing' about using a 'dead' starfish in my decor...maybe its just me..i'm not an animal activist or anything but i find it kinda creepy plus i think if the 'fake' ones are well made no one will even be able to tell the difference.

Those are beautiful!! I was also looking for fake starfish.. however  It is impossible to find Fake sugar starfish... that are 8-10 inches... at least i had no luck at all.. so i conceded and purchased real ones.. as it was the sugar starfish i wanted...  maybe it is just limited for us Canadians to find large fake ones... i dunno... but i had no luck whatsoever so i got the real ones... heheh

I really like yours and I too would prefer using fake ones. Can you tell me where you got yours? I am prepared or order them. Thanks!

Love those fake starfish!!  Hope Christmas Tree Shop still has them. 

 

What type of paint did you use to paint them?  I would love to paint some of them turquoise to go with my colour scheme!

In case it's helpful, I found that if you do web searches for "resin starfish" or "replica starfish", you're more likely to find fake starfish. These sites sell them. Fake starfish is definitely more expensive than natural starfish!

    • 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.
