I went to Maracas Mexico for my Maracas as well. They custom designed and hand painted them to match my stationary. They were gorgeous! The best thing is that they are a company in Mexico so they ship them directly to the resort and no need to deal with the stress of customs! They also created some beautiful papel picado for me. Maracas Mexico has a Facebook page and a website. They have detailed pics on their page. My maracas cost $7 each. That included them customizing the design. Here is a pic of the papel picado...
Sorry...I just love showing off my pics! The pink lanterns I got from Michaels. The papel picado was reasonably priced and a great addition. The resort charged me a $60 decoration fee to hang the lanterns and papel picado. I think it was worth it.
The mason jars were from the resort. They were actually a surprise. My mother made the burlap and lace table runner and when I gave them to Jessica during our meeting I just asked that she use vases that would match. They chose to use the mason jars and decorated them with the lace and twine. It was a great touch! Especially with the simplicity of the white flowers.
Just an idea...If you are thinking of getting guests something that they can put their room key card in it is a good one! Not sure if anyone else had this issue but we had to go to the front desk multiple times throughout the week to have our cards reactivated. Believe me...this is the furthest from a complaint b/c that is literally the only thing that went wrong all week! They did say that they think we kept getting locked out of our room b/c the card was being de-activated from either a cell phone or other credit cards.
