My reception is going to be aquarium inspired (not beach!) and I came across this.
Well actually FH came across it. He got frustrated with me because I kept telling him “COME UP WITH SOMETHING I’M COMING UP WITH ALL THE IDEAS.”
So he searched “spongebob wedding” on pinterest.
Yeah someone has a spongebob wedding board. Probably as a joke. I’m hoping it’s a joke.
Anyway, he found this!
And I think it’s SO FREAKIN COOL LOOKING.
Do any of you ladies think this would work in a vase? Or does it have to be in a bottle?

I do think they look really cool and would work great for an aquarium theme wedding. My only concern is will they look ok when they are just sitting there on the tables? It looks like they are made to be shaken up and that’s what gives them the jellyfish appearance.
Maybe make one up and see what happens when it just sits.

I don’t think this would have the same effect if it was in a vase instead of a bottle. The jellyfish only floats and moves around because the child is moving or shaking the bottle. If these were done in vases the jellyfish would probably just sink to the bottom.

@cheebs: Well the head has some water and some air. If it was just filled with air it would float all the way to the top and if it was filled with all water it would sink to the bottom.
What I’m wondering is, would there be a way to just have it float in the middle of a vase?

@Chrysoberyl: I think it could work, but it might be pretty finicky trial and error to get it to that point.

I wonder if you could get a tall vase with a lid (more like an apothecary jar than a vase) and use something to attach the “head” of the jelly fish to the top of the lid, so it’s held up? Like maybe tie the plastic bag with a fishing string and tape the end of the string to the lid?

@elysion: I thought about that too. But then I watched the video. It looks like it floats to the top. I think I’d need a way to hold it down.

Maybe make the jellyfish a little heavier, put pebbles in the bottom of a vase and hide something like this? https://www.google.co.uk/shopping/product/15991970667771482908?q=aquarium%20air%20pump%20battery%20operated&sqi=2&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&biw=1366&bih=643&sa=X&ei=IeyEUfGHOJG20QWrzIDoCQ&ved=0CGoQ8wIwCA
May add up the expenses a bit but if you just use a few strategically then it should keep the jellyfish moving?
This is so awesome though!!

Very cool. Try experimenting with the water/air head ratio to see what works to keep it floating in the middle. Could you add a submersible floral light too?
