I purchased the Clamrose Shells asst colors, baby sea turtle table centerpieces and Small Starfish asst colors for a beach themed Baby Shower for my sister. The shipment came in and both starfish and shell items were busted up/fractured pretty badly. I'm not sure if it was a shipping issue or not cause we all know our packages can get tossed around without care. But I called Oriental Trading right away cause I was closing in on date for the baby shower and the woman on the phone was VERY pleasant and VERY concerned with my disappointment. She immediated resent me a new pack of the shells priority mail and unfortunately did not have in stock to resend out my starfish but refunded my money. I highly recommend this company!!! Its great to know that there are still companies out there that pride themselves on customer service. THANK YOU SO MUCH for helping me make my sisters baby shower decor a success!!! You guys rock!

I was really pleased with the clamrose seashells. They are very bright and colorful. Just what I was looking for to use on tables as a confetti type of decoration.. Thank you!

Bright & Colorful
Always read the reviews. I did and got exactly what I expected. The seashells are bright and colorful just as shown. They are smaller than one might expect and pretty much all the same size. However, they're just what I needed to place around a centerpiece on a table to add some pizzaz and color to a tropical themed party. Each bag is about the size of an overstuffed sandwhich baggie. I think just a little expensive.

smaller than I thought
They were a lot smaller than I thought they were going to be. some were broken but it happens. I will be using them more like confetti than my original idea, for the price its decent.

Well worth the price
The shells were durable and colorful. The price is incredible. The only downfall was the packaging. The bag broke open during shipping and some of the clams fell out and scattered through the box. Surprisingly though only a few shells were broken.

Bright and colorful
Great touch for scattering on tables as a confetti type of decoration. Bag was split opened an shells spilled thru thoughout the delivery box - but the majority were unbroken so no big problem.

Nice Table Decoration
Although the shells were a bit smaller and not quite as realistic looking than we thought they would be, they looked nice scattered across the tablecloth at our event.
