Rebekah has always loved creating, designing, and reinventing the things around her. She first studied Marketing at the University of San Diego (where she met her husband) and then went to the prestigious Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising where she received a degree in Interior Design and has worked in the field for over 10 years. Following the birth of her daughter Lauren in 2008, she shifted her focus to party/event styling and creating her own party decorations after being unable to find something for her daughter’s 1st birthday.
Still having a love for interiors and being inspired by so many blogs and websites, A Blissful Nest was created. Initially having a desire to write and journal all of her amazing finds, DIY projects and beautiful projects she came across on the web, she soon realized she had more to offer…much more. Within only a few months, she had created several of her own design collections and began consulting on client parties.
After designing her daughter’s vibrant butterfly-themed birthday party, A Blissful Nest was featured on the well known party site, Hostess With The Mostess. The shop immediately became inundated with orders which led to hiring Ashley Tarr as a design assistant. After a very busy end to 2010, BN now offers party printable packages as well as custom made items.
A Blissful Nest is currently expanding with the hiring of regional independent stylists around the country. Michelle Skinner is the first of hopefully many to join the company. BN wants to offer people the experience of having a BN representative come and style their parties locally.
Rebekah still cannot believe this wonderful experience brought her to be home with her daughter full time and still pursue her love for design interests and creativity. Rebekah has many hopes and aspirations for this company. She hopes to turn BN into a lifestyle site for interiors, parties, and everyday life…a place to share new ideas and showcase the best on the web…and to help others find that blissful lifestyle…from one bird to another.
