    That is certainly a perfect basket for decoration and would look even more gorgeous with a bunch of beautiful mix colored flowers in it.

        Sorry this one is so small - I'm at work so I can't get a bigger version right now.  But I think it turned out cute!

          Very nice pic! The dealer I found the shells from said he would drill small holes for the ribbon. He said the shells are very fragile and would break if dropped. Our flower girls are 5 and 3. Do you think the hot glue was firm enough or should I go ahead and have them drilled since he said he would do it for free. Also, was that a 3-4" shell or the 5-6"?

            I think the one I bought said 6-7". It was a perfect size, so I'd definitely recommend the 5-6" if those are your options. I've also heard they are extremely fragile, and was nervous about packing it, but it held up fine. It didn't seem as fragile as expected. The hot glue was no problem at all, but if he's offering to drill a hole I'd probably let him just because it'll be easier to work with and give you some peace of mind! Good ulck. :)

                    oh how annoying! i totally know what you mean - some days i don't even know my own name.  haha.  mine is between 6 and 7 inches and the opening is 4"x3.75", so plenty big for a little girl to get her hands in to grab some petals.  i can easily get my fingers in there - i was actually pleasantly surprised by the size, i think it's perfect.  if you had a really long aisle it might not hold enough petals but i think it's great!  good luck.  also, i think she sells on etsy with the same seller name. here's the one i bought http://www.ebay.com/...b#ht_2529wt_932 and she also has a 5-6 in one here http://www.ebay.com/...a#ht_2529wt_932 and here on etsy!  http://www.etsy.com/...mbered-nautilus?

                    great idea!
