I would get the play sand. I think the sand at the store might be more fine, but I don’t think that should make a difference if you want a natural look.

@msbapf:  I’m doing the same thing!!! I’m adding some shells and fake flower petals too. I am getting the sand at Home Depot or Lowes because it’s SO much cheaper. I’m also doing sandboxes for placecard holders so I’m definitely getting my money’s worth for the 50lb bag. Save the $ and put it towards something else!

My venue was on a golf course, so I wen’t out at night and errr “borrowed” some of the sand from the sand pit area 😉 Even though I live close to the beach, the golf course sand was whiter and cleaner!

The play sand would be great too!

If you want the high quality white type of sand, ask a teacher supply store for “dustless play sand”. It is about three times the cost of play sand, but very clean. I use both in my classroom and the play sand is very dusty and often has little rocks or twigs in it. The dustless play sand is VERY clean, but still cheaper than while you would find at specialty stores.
