Are you decorating a Seashell Wedding, Beach Party - or any beach themed event? Combine gorgeous seashells and starfish with glass, ceramic, linen, sand, natural stone, water, flowers, driftwood.. Read on for examples and ideas!



Seashells & Weddings in History

Seashells are often depicted in Greek / Roman mythology to represent gods Poseidon / Neptune (wealth) and the goddess Aphrodite / Venus (love & happiness). Closely associated with these divine aspects, seashells have been used as good luck charms at weddings time out of mind... You can still see the traditional shell wedding gifts in many parts of the world -a typical example being the Mediterranean 'wedding bonbonniere': a Scallop Shell half filled with candied almonds, wrapped in silk or organza, tied with a ribbon (typically with a personalised gift tag for each wedding guest).

Giving shell gifts or decorating with seashells is a beautiful, time-honoured traditional way to invoke good luck, divine blessings and a happy, successful future for everyone.


Seashell Mixes

Ideal for 'message in a bottle' invitations, bowls, casual table scatters, floor & aisle decor, wedding bouquets, pillow gifts...

Arrange white or very pale seashells together in various different textures or shapes - to combine with pale table linen, glassware, candles, etc. for a fabulous, effortlessly stylish natural look. 



Great in combination with seashell mixes, table scatters, centrepieces, individual table settings, take-home gifts, invitations, etc.

Smaller sized starfish are absolutely wonderful for decoration – they’re versatile, look fun and festive and are perfect for beach themed parties.

TIP: Starfish can be very easily and quickly painted to exactly match your colour theme (see FAQ page to find out how).

We supply seashells & starfish to floral designers around Australia for Seashell Wedding Bouquets. Bouquets can be created entirely from seashells & starfish – or in combination with fresh or silk flowers - they look stunning!

Placecard Shells & Gifts

Table Décor, place card holder & take-home gift: A single beautiful seashell, placed behind each table setting - this provides a perfect casual prop for each name card, as well as a unique take-home gift / memento of your event for each of your guests. A perfect choice for this application: Polished Seashells (reflecting candle light), such as Polished Turbo MED, Polished Trochus Shell MED, etc..


Placecard Starfish & Gifts

Table Décor, Placecard Holders, Take-Home Gifts: White Finger Starfish MED or LG are naturally elegant, classy stars with lovely delicate texture. Attach your guest’s name on a card with matching silk ribbon to place on each table setting: Centered (on the plate), at the side (on the napkin) or upright (against a glass)... Beautiful, elegant take-home gifts for each guest after the event! 


Bonbonnieres & Gifts

The traditional Wedding Gift: A Scallop shell, filled with small gifts or candy (traditionally: Candied Almonds), wrapped in organza or silk, tied with a matching silk ribbon. Use our Decoshells Deep Dish Scallop or the lovely White Scallop Shells. 

TIP: Place individually tagged bonbonnieres at each table setting as a combined gift and place card!  


Seashell Centrepiece

Décor for tables, entrances, buffets and interior shelves. Select a single XL size feature shell or a group of 3 shells.

Feature seashells look timelessly beautiful in combination with other natural elements, such as glass, driftwood, bamboo, sand, stone, slate, etc. Seashells provide a lovely natural element and focal point for table arrangements. They integrate easily with reception designs or event themes. 


Glass Display Centrepiece

Décor for tables, buffets and reception areas. Select a glass vase or bowl to suit your table size. Add some fine white sand and seashells. Add a candle. Or just add water and fresh flowers, but set your vase / bowl inside a circle of similar sized shells. Or lean a starfish against the glass - the options are endless. Simply duplicate your design for each table.

TIP: Select sufficient shells for the table centrepiece, so you can invite your guests to choose one each to take home as a gift.


XL Seashell

Select a single XL-sized seashell to decorate each of the main areas, i.e. entrance to reception, gift / buffet tables, etc. You can coordinate this with flower arrangements - see your florist for ideas!


XL Glass Display

Beautifully arranged floor-length glass displays filled with seashells look stunning! They are perfect for decorating entrances, foyers, reception areas, large interiors at venues. Prominently displayed and visible from across a room, a few tall elegant glass displays will provide a great thematic backdrop in large areas. Super-sized displays usually have a core fill, with shells placed around the core (against the glass). This reduces the overall volume of shells required, makes the glass display much lighter and more portable - a versatile design option, allowing you to easily move a large, decorative arrangement between venues (i.e. church to reception, etc.).
