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.
