  1. Shamikka Bell,Cincinnati, OH United States

    Love these bottles, easy to assemble but time consuming when making about 50. They came exactly as described and easy to follow instructions.

  2. Pam,Escondido, CA United States

    Hello, I would say that I am 90% satisfied with this purchase. Everything was of good quality. There are a just a few things that I would approve. I would provide regular mail time line expectations more clearly in the confirmation, or at the top during Selection. I ordered 50 bottles. The glass bottles came in boxes of 12. There were two loose ones. Theyhad smaller mouths than the other 48 which did not accommodate the corks that are provided so I feel I was shorted two. There were plenty of shells and ribbon. I didn’t have enough sand. The papers were fine except Staples would not print on them because they only print on 8.5 x 11 paper. So that was a loss. So it wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t perfect and I do feel cheated out of two bottles.

    I ordered the Ocean Shores do it yourself bottles (plastic) and they are the perfect for what I had planned. I am sending anonymous notes to friends and family during this time of “social distancing”. I thought it would be a fun little distraction while they try and figure out who sent them their “Message In a Bottle”. I

    The box arrived early. There was more than enough fillers for every bottle. The bottles turned out amazing. Our guest are so excited to have recieved them. Got tons of compliments. Would buy again.

  5. Lisa G.,Laplace, LA United States

    I Love the invitations. They were beautiful and very easy to put together.

  6. Vanessa,San Diego, CA United States

    We used this as a company for invitations to an open house, and they were the star of the show! Definitely took a team to put together since we ordered so many, but we knew that when ordering the DIY version, so it wasn’t a problem. We will definitely be recommending these to our clients.

  7. Denea Gummo,Tipton, PA United States

    Very easy instructions, everything was included to make your own. Was very easy to build the invitations on your own. The only down fall was the shipping boxes that were included, not much security in them and you’ll have to wrap the bottles in bubble wrap or paper to secure they don’t break during transit.

  8. Rose M,Northlake, IL United States

    I was pleasantly surprised the bottles were larger than I expected. You should include the dimensions on the description along w/the size of the note.

    Mary Ann was wonderful and patient helping me customize and modify the bottle note just the way I wanted it. The end result was fantastic. Delivery was fairly quick too.

    I am a romance author and this message in a bottle ties into a story I’m writing. It will make a fun and unique reader giveaway.

    Will definitely purchase again. Thank you!

  9. ,OH United States

    Great and unique invitations for my son’s first birthday party! My package did get lost with Fedex and arrived a week later than expected (this was not the sellers fault but more Fedex). I highly recommend this company and product!

  10. Carolyn Dewey

    These will not disappoint. I have not mailed as yet, but have enjoyed making this unique invitation with the do it yourself kit.

  11. Randa

    This was absolutely perfect. I was looking for a unique way to invite people to my cruise wedding. The directions were excellent on how to put it together, and after a few, I quickly had the hang of it. They are gorgeous, and I’m very excited to give them out.

  12. Ann Wiemer

    The kit with the bottles, sand and shells were great. With that said, commutation was non existent. Emailed a few times, Nothing. They said 10 business days, it was more like 30. Couldn’t get in touch with them….

  13. Bobbi Pajak

    Beautiful and easy to put together! The guest loved them as much as we did ❤️

  14. Irene Brown

    We used these bottles as part of 25 beach scene centerpieces several years ago and they were such a hit that we ordered more for revised beach scenes at a recent party. They added an intriguing touch. It was great to be able to share an appropriate message inside and, while we didn’t suggest it, it was fun to watch people retrieve the messages and read them during the party.

  15. Tammie Warren

    What I ordered and what I received were very different. The sand and the shells were already in the bottles combined together. I received no funnel, no stick, no raffia and no instructions. I actually had to go to the dollar tree to make all of this work. Cute idea but I only ordered 3 and felt like this may have been a return from someone and then sent to me since so incomplete. I had to pour contents out of the bottle and separate shells and sand.

      Tammie, We are sorry about your experience. When you order only few bottles (3 in your case), it’s easier to send everything put together instead of sending little of sand and little of shells separately in containers. Less work for you because they come assembled.
