    Never in a million years would I have thought of this.... may be needing some starfish now.  What size are yours?  Where did you get them?  I am thinking for our placecards.....

    today, i plan on focusing on my decor.  i'm absolutely obsessed with shades of purple and platinum/silver...with a little black thrown in for good measure.  most of my decorations will be in the purple and platinum colors..so today, i'm dyeing starfish...

     

    yes, ladies..dyeing starfish.  i bought some white starfish here on BDW.com and well, since everything has to COOOOORRRRDDDDIIIIINNNNNNAAAATTTTEEEEE...they simply had to be dyed...here's a look at what i did...

    its pretty simple..i used wilton food coloring..followed the directions on the box for dyeing easter eggs and voila...my starfish are now a beautiful shade of purple.

     

    ok, that's it from here...

     

    until next time, happy planning!!

        I love the starfish! I'll be using them for place cards but will leave them as is, I love that you coordinated :) Where did you get your starfish? I bought some off of another bride and she was very kind enough to pick up some extras at a shop in the US. Can't wait to get them! They're fake too which is perfect!

            I am using starfish as well for place cards. I purchased mine from the Christmas Tree Shop!

                I think Christmass Tree Shop selles starfish in the bag that they sell

                  hello ladies!

                   

                  i bought ALL of my starfish from two BDW brides..not sure of the size...one batch (the one i dyed) are real..and one batch (i spray painted those) are fake...some of my starfish are quite large..probably 5 inches and then the others are small...2 to 3 inches...

                   

                  i've seen them all over though...ross, marshalls, etc..i don't think we have an xmas store here..but i'll be on the lookout from now on.

                   

                  i'm not doing placecards as i want my guests to sit where they want..but i love the idea of using them as placecards..one other thing you might consider is attaching a magnet to the back with a dob of glue and voila..not only will they serve as placecards but then they can become a refrigerator magnet..a nice reminder of the great time folks had at your wedding in paradise.  ;-)  i'm pretty sure i'll be doing that for some of mine..which will be given with our welcome packets upon check-in at the hotel.

                   

                  until next time, happy planning!!!

                   

                  R~

                    This is a brilliant idea! I'm not using starfish at all, but now I kinda wish I was. I wouldn't have even thought of that- so simple but such a lovely thought! Great! Loving seeing your new additions too, R. Looking amazing as always! x

                      thanks, girlie..starfish are a fairly inexpensive way to add to the 'beachy vibe'...plus they serve so many purposes...

                       

                      what part of the UK do you live in??  i lived in the cotswolds in the late 80s....loved it!!!

                       

                      until next time, happy planning!!
