good evening, skygirl!!!

yep..food coloring should be fine..just follow the instructions on the food coloring box..

 

keep in mind that the coloring will dry differently..also, i think martha has a glittery turquoise color to add some bling...spray painting real starfish can be tricky..they tend to look washed out and don't absorb the paint well...i prefer paint on the fake ones only...

 

good luck, skygirl...sounds like a super cute idea...please post pics so we can all be inspired.

 

until next time, happy planning!!!

Good morning mrstgun! Was wondering when you cut a ribbon ( like your little happily ever after ribbon on the garter) what do you do to the edge so that the threading doesn't start unwinding ???

 

Thanks Michèle xo

hi, michcraw!

 

cut the ribbon on an angle with SUPER sharp scissors...i don't use my 'ribbon cutting' scissors on anything but ribbon...that way they stay sharp...

 

or you can fold them and cut down for a nice clean double edge...

 

good luck!!  and as always, until next time, HAPPY PLANNING!!

ps...my starfish couple tied the knot.  cheesy.gif  (you can see the angle cut and the double edge cut on the ribbon in the pic)  blush2.gif

    • 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
