our sign-in/wish jar:

photos looping all night via projector (no slideshow)
here are some pictures our 8 candy jars and candy bags with twistie ties...
our candies will be: 1. Lemonheads, 2. Passion Fruit salt water taffy, 3. Peppermint (safeway special, wrapped in yellow tissue), 4. Combo of dove's chocolate (blue foil) & hershey's Bliss chocolate (blue foil), 5. Yellow Rock Candy on a stick, 6. Hi-chew (japanese fruity chewy candy from taiwan), 7. Mele chocolates (toffee covered mac nuts covered with chocolate, from Hawaii), 8. Pineapple candy (from Hawaii).
this is the DIY candy wrapping posted originally by jamiesue on PW (http://www.i-do-it-yourself.com/2009/05/wrap-idea-tissue-ribbon-makeovers/). except i'll be securing the sides with the twistie ties you see above (since i have 1000!!!! of them).
in all, i'll have about 5lbs of each type = 40 lbs of candy!
the calculation per person = 0.25 lbs x 150 guests = 37.5 lbs...should be enuf to for everyone!
Lemonheads, Rock candy and Salt Water Taffy ordered from www.candydirect.com - flat shipping fee or free shipping if order > $75.00; which was easily done.
i'm thinking about a staggered setup like this w/ DIY candy labels:
can't wait to see how it turns out!

we had a great time! we have a lot more pictures - too many to post...
thank you lawrence ha!
went to SF flower market and bought these!
and my centerpiece trial:
step one: water in vase!
step two: dip hydrangea in alum (spice) powder - to increase life of hydrangea...
step three: put all the flowers you like in the vase! :P
i put hydrangea (1), football mums (LOVE, 2), white dalias (1), pale yellow dalias (2), yellow roses (3), yellow ball thingys (billy bobs?, 3), solidago (yellow/green things, as many as i like!)...total estimated cost per CP, including the vase: $16 (not too bad, in my opinion)...
