<span style=”font-size: 6pt; font-family: Verdana”>Hello everyone. I’ve been so inspired by reading all the various posts on the weddingbee that I finally decided to create one of my own. Since time is counting down (and everyone seems to want to remind me of it!), I am scrambling not to wait too last minute to complete my massive to do list. <span style=”font-size: 6pt; font-family: Verdana”> <p style=”margin: 0in 0in 0pt” class=”MsoNormal”><span style=”font-size: 6pt; font-family: Verdana”>At any rate, I am searching for any creative ideas or pictures anyone might have to share displaying how they used starfish accents in their wedding. I am having an outside wedding in Florida and I thought this would be a modern/elegant theme if not used too heavily and overdone. Also, if anyone has suggestions on where to find reasonably priced starfish for craft projects, I’d appreciate that as well.

I am using white pencil starfish for my placecards (putting guest name & table number on matted cardstock and tying the starfish arm with ribbon), putting starfish and twine on my invitations and having a cake with shells and starfish on it. Im also going to use the same small starfish that are on the invitations on my menu cards that I will be making. I over-ordered the pencil starfish for the placecards, so some extras will go on a few of the tables around the centerpiece.
A couple other starfish elements we will be getting is a ring bearer pillow & flower girl baskets with starfish on them and cake cutter/server. Lastly, Ill probably get a few starfish hair pins for my hair
Hope this helps and gives you some ideas!

I saw some really neat boutonnieres that were just a starfish hot glued to a pin.

I ordered some small starfish from Oriental Traders (500 pack). They are more of the tan/yellow variety-not white. I used the starfish in the favors; Christmas ornaments inspired by Mrs. Corn which are not yet complete. I also used the starfish to dress up some candles which will surrond a pot of flowers for the centeriee. I tried to attach photos but I’m not sure if they are working since they seem to be denied on my computer. Basically, I bought small glass candles, glued a satin ribbon around the middle and glued a small starfish over the seam in the ribbon. They are not overwhelming but I think tie in the ocean theme nicely. I also bought some sand dollars from Oriental Traders but most of them are broken and I have not yet decided what to do with those.

Starfish are my theme too!!!! I am doing DIY invitations using my gocco and I am having some gold colored starfish cascade down the side of the invites. I’l be doing my own programs, menus, etc. too and I will be printing starfish on all those as well. Also, if you buy any personalized favors from The Knot, you can get a cute starfish printed on them. I decided to get matchbooks and napkins with our names, wedding date and a starfish and they look super good! I also got little tags with the same info and a starfish that I will be attaching to a little silver pail as our favors (we’re putting hershey kisses in our pails, most likely). I did want to do escort cards using real starfish and then stick them in a box of sand with a little tag with each persons name on them, but our venue doens’t allow sand. But I can send you pictures of what I’m talking about if you like. Just send me your email. Good luck!!

@BaghdadBride I used that same centerpiece as the inspiration for my starfish centerpiece!
Here is a pic of my first try at the centerpieces (sorry the picture quality is not the best). The vases are from Walmart and the starfish are from
We will probably add a few inches of sand and a fake tea light to the bottom.
The other starfish accent I think we are going to use are these wine stoppers as our favors and attach the escort cards to them.
