We have always had the pleasure of featuring unique Etsy shops and today we are excited to share another very interesting one carrying a variety of home decorations for all year around named Seasonal Boutique!
Seasonal Boutique is based in St Louis, Missouri selling darling handcrafted dioramas, wreaths, and other floral arrangements that are all one of a kind. The owners of this shop have always loved celebrating the holidays and began creating these pretty pieces after visiting a craft store to get project ideas. The craft store didn't quite have what they were hoping and gave them the motivation to run with their own designs. They soon began attending craft shows where they constantly received feedback to sell online. Once they had enough dioramas and wreaths for Halloween and Christmas, they extended their services online and continued making many more special arrangements for all seasons.
Every one of their creations is a favorite of theirs; however, they find dioramas are their best. Owner Sean Hart happily states, "We find the figures and make a story for the diorama, it's so much fun!" Below are some neat decorations you will find in their shop. One could only imagine how much detail is involved in making these items and yet, so very delightful.
Egyptian Halloween Diorama!
Take a good look at the mummy crawling in or out of it's tomb. The white LED lights make for a scary tomb scene. A hand painted skull is wrapped in gauze. Glow in the dark paint highlight the sarcophagus and mummies in this Egyptian tomb diorama.
Loading the Sleigh, Christmas Diorama!
Make your holiday decor different with this diorama scene. Santa is having a final adjustment to his red coat while his elves load the sleigh. Letters must be retrieved to be filled before Santa can leave. Light up Santa cap lamp posts and white fencing along with Elf crossing signs finish the look. Clear LED lights highlights the scene. Holly garland and poinsettia flowers surround the front opening of this handmade snowball.
Fabulous Floral New Year's Centerpiece!
A tall soda glass has silver metallic shred filling the interior while silver colored berries pop out of the top. Silver glitter spirals and a clear snowflake with white feather picks add sparkle.
Silk Spring Wreath!
You don't see very many of these types of wreaths. Brighten up your front door with this lovely dogwood and daisy flowers flat wreath.
All in all, you can see how fun it can be to create seasonal decor but like every business their were challenges this boutique had to overcome. First, they had to choose the right diorama containers. They decided to make paper mache "snowballs" for Christmas and thereafter, it simply took practice to make very durable mache. Secondly, they had to test lighting the dioramas. At first, figures got lost in the dark. They tried different lights and found battery operated lights were the best to display the dioramas in any location. Lastly, they had to ensure wreaths fit between screen doors. With that, it was all about the materials and making sure they were splendid but slim enough to fit all types of doors.
Needless to say, entrepreneurial experimenting and experience is what it takes to have a successful Etsy shop and we are happy to feature Seasonal Boutique this week! Custom orders are welcome and every item includes a free gift message, delivered directly to you or your loved during the holiday season.
