Hello, I’m Dana the woman behind CereusArt!

CereusArt Coastal Decor Owner Dana Haddon


I am Dana.  I love the beach.  I enjoy coastal decorating and beach themed event decor.  As a former DIY bride, I was challenged to find just the right finishing touches that truly reflected my personal style and vision for my own beach wedding. I was frustrated by the endless hunt for the right materials in the right quantities and ended up designing most of my wedding details by hand from scratch! I made embossed wedding invitations, personalized coasters, ceremony programs, favors and even a special sea-inspired “I Spy” game for my guests. I discovered my passion for meeting a need for those seeking handcrafted coastal décor and finishing touches, and in 2011 CereusArt was born!

This blog was born 4 years ago as a place to share my passion for beach decor and inspiration.   Back in the day I kept binders chock full of decorating ideas and beach inspiration.  It had magazine articles, scraps of paper, upholstery and fabric samples, and my beloved collection of paint color chips.   Creating this blog helped to organize my collection, but it also provided me with an opportunity to meet folks who love beach house decorating as much as I do!

Every comment, share, and tweet brightens my day.  Thank you for being here.
