                We bought aqua shell curtains to hang in the back. We sent them via FedEx to Dreams & they arrived last week without incident! Yay!

                Shoes sign & brushes
                I saw someone’s shoe parking sign somewhere along the way and loved this idea. I made my own version using thick craft felt, white acrylic paint and a wooden flip-flop crafty thing, all from Michael’s. I bought a small (~2 ft) wire easel that will stick in the sand and hold the sign through a small hole punched in the top of it.

                Our reception will be poolside at the Las Palmas Terrace.

                We’re going to have lounge furniture set up for the cocktail hour & reception. Here’s an idea of how they can set things up, but I’m not sure what the end result will be.

                Table numbers & place card holders
                I decided I wanted to go with something that could double as a favor & thought Mexican Talavera tiles would be perfect! They can be used as trivets, spoon rests or just as decoration. I ordered 20 different hand-painted tiles from TilesandTiles.com (great customer service!), painted the backs with terracotta paint and then wrote guests’ names & table #’s in silver calligraphy marker.
                The table #’s are Hacienda house tiles ordered from finecraftsandimports.com
