Thanks!

the starfish I bought are real... I bought 6 painted 2" starfish and they were $20 I also bought 10 natural ones for $15 for my tables... You can buy the natural ones and paint them yourself :)

I think you should have a card box or something even if you only have 24 people...I went to DW once and they didn't have one so the guests kinda just carried the cards around with them all night! I've seen some pretty small ones at the dollaramma, Michael's and homesense

Everything looks fantastic. Nice work!!

I agree on having a card box as well. Just easier to keep the cards and whatever else in one place. We did post cards for our guestbook so it doubled for both. Now I use the box as my memory box and have one of everything we did in it and all our cards, etc.

@Meandhim

Good thinking. I really loved these starfish on Etsy:

I think its a little pricy for just the cake that no one will remember haha.

 

I think you might be right about the card box. I might have to look for something light and small. I can probably find something more creative for my at home reception but I suppose I should have something for the DW. Thanks :)

Those are really cool! but 40 plus shipping is too much

 

if you wanted a cheaper option you could buy these:

6 for $10 ...spray paint them white and add the bling / sparkle yourself

 

You could use it at both your DW and AHR

@Meandhim I already bought some real starfish on etsy so I think I might actually paint them and add the bling like you mentioned. That will save so much money! Thank you for the tip! :)

I got them printed at vistaprint...they are rack cards...They only do a min of 50 so if you need less I know some of the girls are getting stuff printed at staples.

@Meandhim

Thanks! I couldn't find them on Vistaprint but I was calling them Door hangers, so that makes sense. I'm trying to find something on staples too now. I deffs don't need 50.

@Meandhim Love everything you've made so far! I'm impressed :) I really like the I Spy game. So fun! I haven't seen that before. I'm gonna need to think about that more.

@Meandhim OMG, in love with everything you've made  :)

 

I really need to get my butt in gear and start thinking about this stuff. Hopefully the things I eventually DIY end up half as good as yours!
