I found this gorgeous decanter at a local craft and homewares store for $30!!! It has blue glass in the bottom so when you tilt the glass blue streaks arcoss it like magic. I later found these two smaller blue glass bottles with cute little cork toppers for $.5c each at an Op Shop.
The two blue bottles will be filled with sand. A peice of paper with our sand ceremony vows written on it will be rolled into a cone and steve and i will use the cone as a funnell when pouring the sand into the larger decanter.
In the original ceremony design the main decanter should be filled intirely with sand but I believe the smaller bottles are too good to pass up. So the bottom of the decanter will be filled and then the paper with the vows will be pushed inside so it may be read.
