N is for Nautical Wedding Theme


SHIPWRECKED-Seashell crown with moss and starfish details
Happy Sunday Funday!  I trust you will spend it enjoying this awesome sunshine filled Summer. I've have been super busy, working on three weddings and writing lots of warm weather inspired posts. Earlier this week I was working on coming up with unique and tasty Mock-tails for your Summer Event (they turned out yummy) down near Rainbow Harbor, here in Long Beach California. As I was working I paused a moment to just quietly observe.  Even though I work in the area, it's very rare I stop and just take in the scenery.  I observed a sailboat slowly entering the waterway, passing by the Long Beach Lighthouse, heading for a post with weather beaten wood.  I also noticed the variety of blue hues and some old anchors handing out on a dock.  All this inspired me to take these details and turn them into a Nautical Inspired Wedding Theme. Of course my next move was to scour Etsy (my favorite source of handmade and unique items) and put together some amazing touches that are sure to wow guests. I do not currently have a Bride with a Seaside Theme but after creating this collection, I sure hope I book one soon:)
