    very nice - I would live to get an invite like that - the coconut smell would get me super excited for my vacation!

        Those are so cute.
        That is the kind of invitation I am planning on doing (we got the idea from a friend who had received one). I like the coconut oil touch.
        Where did you get the bottles and sand? Did Michaels or craft stores have them? I haven't had a chance to go shopping for the supplies yet.

        ..I also haven't picked a location yet so I think I have time.

          We actually got the bottles from a local home-brewing store (for people who make beer and wine). They were very inexpensive there - about $1/bottle. If you have someplace like that in your area, definitely check them out.

          Otherwise, we found a few places online that sold the bottles...

          If you order online, make sure you order the bottle mailers. We ordered the 'shoebox' size USPS.com boxes (free) and they are too large. I think we may order small vial size bottles for our placecards, so I'm going to order the mailers.

          Sand and shells were from the local craft store :)

            once mine are done i'll put pics up but i just ordered my bottles and boxes and a huge bag of shells from sand art. we're gonna get the sand from a gardening store (home depot maybe) b/c i think they have different kinds - beach sand and play sand. otherwise sand from michaels.

              Jenn - this is a very cute idea . . . your guest are going to love them. It's something that most people have probably never received before.

                  Sorry to hear that! I think they are such a great idea for a DW. I'd never heard of doing something like this until I started searching invites... your starfish invites are going to look awesome though! I can't wait to see them!
