I am so thrilled I finally decided on the chair decor for our wedding and for the right price!

 

This is my inspiration:

I found spools of Organza that are 5" x 18ft for $1 at AC Moore in the perfect fuschia!  (They had other colors also)  I am only going to use 1 starfish per chair.  I picked up a bag of 3-4" pencil starfish at Christmas Tree Shops for $1.85 for 6 (I had a coupon) .  So if I take the time and use a bunch of the 50% off coupons at AC Moore, I'm looking at only 55 cents per chair.  So for all 30 it would be around $16.50!  What are your thoughts?

We are going to attach a pin on the back of the starfish at home.  

 

Something like this....

@csho how did you attach your starfish?  What did you use for the sash part?  Where they tied in bows or a knot?

 

Thanks!

love this! I'm only worried about traveling with the starfish through customs...

Either way, I've been looking at all kinds of shops and craft stores for that style starfish...no luck! :(

@trbutler I attached a pin to the back of them with glue gun and then I had originally wanted the sashes tied like this :

 


 

However; the people who set them up tied them in a bow and then attached them but it looked good anyway! And I used coral organza chair sashes that I bought off ebay.

 

@pddcmc I luckily found some at HomeSense randomly, they are tough to come by but I need some more and bought the rest off etsy. Also we didn't have any issues travelling with them through customs, but we went to Cuba. I am not sure if Mexico would be different. I'd be more worried about going back into the US or Canada with them, but again we are in Canada and didn't have any issues coming back.

@pddcmc I found the right size ones at Christmas Tree Shops.  They were 6 for $2.29

@trbutler, thanks! I guess I'll have to start looking at those places once they start popping up again. I went to Michael's and found the right size also, but they are $6/piece...I need too many for that price. ....or maybe I am cheap? lol Either way, thanks for the advice!
