Lucky Hair Accessories for St. Patrick’s Day + Photo Styling Tips

This post contains affiliate links - when clicked and a purchase is made, I will receive a small percentage of the sale at no additional cost to you. Thank you for supporting handmade shops and my party blog.

When it comes to St. Patrick’s Day, Kasia of MiaHeartmade on Etsy creates extra pretty hair accessories that stand out. There’s the sparkliest Shamrock hair clips, a glittery big bow headband and even a lucky horseshoe hair clip.

If you’re an Etsy artist looking to take your product photography to another level, take a peek at these photos from MiaHeartmade. She styled her St. Patrick’s Day hair accessories with my Festive Fetti. This particular photo series is shown with my St. Patrick’s Day Confetti - available in my party shop here and in my Festive Fetti etsy shop.

When styling your products with Festive Fetti, you will always be making your products stand out. The bonus with the confetti as your photo styling prop is you can easily color match your products but you won’t be taking the viewers eye away from what you are selling. Which is the key because too many props in a photo will confuse the buyer. You want your customer to see exactly what they are purchasing. The confetti is an easy way to enhance your own product and showcase the amazing details that you worked so hard on.

Click here to find the perfect confetti mix for your next product photo styling session. And, if you don’t see the perfect color match - feel free to message me for a custom confetti mix created just for you and your business.

We hope that everyone had a wonderful Holiday and are delighted to feature Bunnies By The Bay for this week's Vendor Spotlight.

The focus of Bunnies By The Bay is to create delightfully endearing gifts for wee ones embarking on their first years of life. With engaging art and playful wit, Bunnies By The Bay offers detailed designs and lush materials in timeless products that promise parents and grandparents a cherished heirloom in the years to come.
