The Blue Giraffe Celebrates 3rd Anniversary

with a Sea Turtle Event, Nov. 16


WaterColor, Fla.–Nov. 7, 2013–The Blue Giraffe, an art and gifts boutique in the WaterColor Town Center, will celebrate its 3rd Anniversary on Nov. 16 from 1-4 p.m. with a Sea Turtle Event. In partnership with the South Walton Turtle Watch, The Blue Giraffe aims to help build awareness and support for endangered and threatened sea turtles, which nest along South Walton beaches each year.

“As a turtle watch volunteer, I’m keenly aware of the many threats that jeopardize sea turtles survival,” said Debbie Taylor, co-owner of the Blue Giraffe. “There are many things we can do to improve their chances of survival and ensure hatching sea turtles make it safely to the Gulf of Mexico from the beach.”

The family-friendly event will feature a variety of interactive activities and turtle-themed art.  At 2:30 p.m., there will be a book reading for children and Q&A about sea turtles. Moore Family Folk Art will join the fun with “make and take art” projects that invite families to make their own turtle-inspired creation from recycled materials on painted boards. Artist Constance Snellgrove (aka Sassy Jewels) will feature her sea turtle-inspired jewelry and a variety of sea turtle art will be on display.

The Blue Giraffe will be selling TurtleSafe flashlights and sea turtle books, and the South Walton Turtle Watch will be on hand with sea turtle literature and coloring books.

Drawings for prizes will take place throughout the afternoon and proceeds from the sale of sea turtle art will benefit South Walton Turtle Watch. The Blue Giraffe is located on Hwy 30A in the WaterColor Town Center. For more information, visit or call 850-231-5112.
