    We did buy the flip-flop cards... they were much smaller than I expected - about 3.5 inches long maybe? I don't think anyone used them and they ended up being just a cool novelty. We also got the flip flop note books, shell leis (which were a big hit, actually), and beach balls (also a hit). I thought the shell leis would be dorky, but people actually wore them the entire weekend! Who knew?!?

      Thanks! Thats funny about the leis... there is something about vacation and people doing the unexpected! :) I loved whole beach themed idea for the OOT... but now I'll have to decide... real cards may be more useful afterall.

      I think I would suggest the real cards. The flip flop ones, although really cute are really quite small! I ordered the metallic ones instead and they are normal sized.
      I also have ordered:
      Just married flip flops
      Bride/Groom visors
      Cocktail parasols (my original idea for place cards)
      Raffia Fans - wedding programs
      Starfish - stinky! :)
      Beach balls
      Small beach buckets with sand tools for the kids
      Squirty fish
      Flip Flop note pads
      Hibiscus candy bracelets

      I'm sure there is more, but I can't think of anything else right now.

        Sorry I am not sure about the flip flop playing cards.
        However I ordered the regular playing cards with the flowers on the package from oriental trader and they are cute. I also got palm leafs, blue rose petals, mini starfish, flowered fans, ruler/bookmark flip-flop, and Hawaiian shirt note pad. I thought every thing was cool and in good looking for how cheep it cost. Good luck with your choice!

          Too funny! I thought I was the only one getting discouraged when I had to click through the big websites! Good to know I am not the only one!

            So I went way overboard with my OTC order. this is what i got:
            flip flop playing cards
            flip flop notepads
            playing card and poker chip sets (texas hold em sets)
            mint tins that are personalized
            keychains
            maraca pens
            beach balls
            hibiscus mini footballs
            tropical luggage tags
            flip flop magnets
            surfboard bookmarkers
            hibiscus coin purses
            twohearts one love tissue packets
            flipflop pocketplanner
            flip flop candles
            tropical tin candles smell like vanilla

                hi..

                i just received my flipflop cards the other days.. and i personally dont like them..the idea is cute but the quality sucks..very cheap.. i thought they would be like regular playing cards just smaller but the quality isnt too good..

                so im gonna send mine back..and just get regular size playing cards from costco..and put 1 per bag..instead of 1 per person..

                  How are the quality of the cards w/ flowers? Are they the same as regular playing cards... or are they more flimsy?
