    Sorry - I was gone for my wedding!

     

    They shipped really fast if I remember correctly - I had so many packages arriving around that time that I can't remember for sure, but I think I got them in about a week.  Mine didn't stink at all...  I even kept them in the boxes they were shipped in to pack in my suitcase, so I never aired them out - there was no smell at all.  But, I read from someone else that hers smelled, so she laid them out in her basement for a few days and the smell went away.

     

    I used my shells & starfish for "center pieces" - just had them scattered all over the tables, and they were beautiful - and so much cheaper than center pieces would have been!

        I just looked at their website and I think it has changed a bit since I ordered them.  I actually found them through Ebay and was able to buy a bag of 50 starfish for $35.. Much better than $0.99 per starfish!

            Thanks Marlena!

             

            I actually don't - funny story, my DH had sun stroke on our wedding day, and actually got sick during our meal.....  He recovered fine, but there was a bit of chaos and the photographer didn't take many pics during the meal...  I have one of the cake table that shows the starfish, but sadly no pics of the rest of the tables:

                      How big did you ladies order your starfish?  Is 3-4" too small? I need a 135.   It's getting pricey....
