are these real star fish and that is why they smell? if so put them in the oven and bake them it will take out the smell!

I wasn't sure about the starfish at first... how I would incorporate them so didn't but they at winners... my mom ended up buying them at homesense.
Welcome!!!! We are so glad you found us!!!!!! We started to consume the "canadian OOT" thread so we figured it would be a good idea to have a "Canadian" outlet for our chit chat and support!!!! I am on here a lot... I need an OOT bag and BDW intervention, though those are basically intertwined.... some might find it annoying but it has made this planning SO fun!!!!! The grasses are really really light but are right to the bottom of the vase and then secured by about 4 inches of sand and then sea shells so I think I should be ok. I never considered it to be honest. We are in an open air restaurant but it is covered and in the evening they drop all the curtains so I think we should be fine. I hope at least!!!!!! I definitely agree about the real candle thing. I LOVE the battery operated tea lights and homesense even has battery operated pillars that are SCENTED!!!! So you can have your vanilla candle and not worry about it blowing out, catching fire or forgetting you lit it!!!!! I am using sheppards hooks to line our aisle but I am thinking of using them at the reception spot as well with lanterns and using battery operated tea lights in them... they even flicker!!! Ahhhh I love the new inventions!!!
Thanks Ann-Marit!!!!!! Unfortunately they don't have navy Not sure if I mentioned before but I actually made a convertible dress!!!! It is SO SO easy, if you have a sewing machine I highly recommend trying it! Anyways, I made one and ended up thinking maybe we wouldnt go the convertible route and now I am thinking I may go back to do the convertible... I just don't want it to be too casual but I think they will be comfy for the girls!!! I can't justify the high price tag of the ones on etsy and online (in my colour) since I could make mine for about $20 $25 MAX!
I saw the Henkaa store the other day, but they are pricier aren't they? What was the cost if you don't mind sharing?!
Ok! Good to know, my mom picked these up and I was over for dinner and they were on the chair not far from me and I couldn't figure it out... I kept smelling a urine smell (do yours smell like pee?!) I thought it was my centrepiece as I had brought it to show her... no.... I FINALLY figured it out and then thought maybe the CAT had peed on them but they ALL smelt!!! I told mom I don't want them in my suitcase as everything will smell bad so we are going to air them out! Thanks for the tip about putting them outside! I will try that!!
