Does anybody know who sells glass floats large enough to put a lightbulb inside? I tried lamp stores with no luck.

I went to Michaels this afternoon, & besides floats & netting they had:

  • Bags of shells & starfish (large net bags of craft shells, smaller poly-wrapped bags of finer shells),
  • 5' Tiki torches,
  • tabletop Tiki torches,
  • "Luau Party Bright Lights" a 10 light string with Tiki heads, grass skirts, palm trees & coconut drinks,
  • Tiki head & pineapple confetti,
  • glass bottle tabletop oil lamps tied with string (like a glass float, but bottle shaped) with tiny shells @ the knots,
  • decorative plates with palm trees that say "Hawaii, the World's Island Paradise,"
  • 6' lengths of bamboo.


Plus, less Tiki & more tacky:

  • luminaria with cutouts in the shapes of parrots, flamingos, fish & drinks,
  • typical party store leis, plates, cups & napkins with tiki/tropical themes,
  • hanging paper lanterns with Hibiscus & flamingos,
  • plastic flower covered hair bands,
  • various ticky-tacky with images of palm trees or pineapples.

hey, while you all are scouting Target for tiki lava lites etc., swing by the garden department. Ours had blown glass spheres, about 7" in diameter, being sold CLEARANCE as "gazing balls." they are not opaque. i bought two - one could easily remove the rubber plug, remove the "mung" they have glued inside, and make some kickass lighting (adding netting, of course). just fyi - if you go ask for "gazing balls..." (insert joke here again)
