For covering the outsides, I debated over what exactly I wanted to do for about a week. There are so many neat ideas out there, but it all boiled down to one factor - time. I only have about 4 or so days to complete any last minute details and get the heck down to Virginia Beach. (Ah!!)
I think what I'm going to end up doing is use a larger circle punch and layer them around the outside for the cover then water down some acrylic paint in a beachy teal/blue color and spray them. Once dry, I have little battery operated tea lights I will use to light them up from the inside The color will blend well with the theme and the circles will create a sort of scaling affect to match too.
So much to do! I only hope that in the end, the Bride has a good time and really enjoys herself.
