A SEASIDE AFFAIR
Beach weddings have always been popular! People love the ocean and sometimes it's the place people fall in love. It's always a great backdrop to say "I do". I found this great ETSY shop, TheSeashellCollection, that specializes in ocean themed decor for weddings including wedding favors, toppers and many other beach wedding decorations. If you are looking for some great seashell themed decor this is the ETSY shop for you! Make your beach wedding unique and gorgeous! Here are some items from the shop and information about the owner, Janet Nordlinger!
++ This is the perfect hair pins for the bride or the bridesmaids!
Janet started several years ago, when her sister asked me to look at a couple of shell mirrors she'd made. Her first thought was of the mass-produced, tacky, seashell products. When she saw them, she literally gasped! They were that beautiful. She took them to a friend who owns a home decor boutique in Santa Monica (an Oprah favorite) and she had the exact same reaction. The next morning, she called to say she'd already sold one.
I decided this was something that really appealed to me as well.
++ These seashell chair decor really make the chairs pop!
++ How cute are these for the ring bearer and flower girl!
After a few years of robust sales to home decor shops and designers, a friend suggested I check out Etsy. I opened my shop here in 2009 and I absolutely love it. There is a real warmth that comes through when working with my customers and I love knowing that my products go to real and wonderful people.
Having grown up in Newport Beach, California and moving to Santa Monica in my twenties, the ocean has always been a big part of her life. I even spent an idyllic year in Hawaii after college…sold my VW and enjoyed the Islands to the fullest!
Then it was back to the Mainland and reality. She started my career as an administrator in the film business, and later became an interior designer, her real love.
++ Her homemade products really added a personal touch to the wedding decor!
