Make the Beach a Part of Your Holiday Décor

The beautiful weather has arrived in Naples and I often have to be reminded by friends and family up north that the holidays are right around the corner. Why not try something fresh and fun for your holiday décor. Bring the inside out with beach and garden themed decorations for your front door, living room and tabletops. These wonderful displays can last way past New Years day, so create and enjoy!

Skip the Traditional Red and Green

Color is one of the easiest ways to bring the beach into your home for the holiday. Instead of using red and green, decorate using beach colors that remind you of the sand and the surf.  White, beige, and gray tones make wonderful backdrops for seashell pink, sunset yellow, tropical green, sandy tan, pearl, and sky blue. White trees with blue baubles, seaweed garlands with white lights, and wreaths made of sea shells can all help create a beach-highlighted holiday. There are many unique ways to help bring a coastal feel to your holidays. The whole family can help.

Bring the Beach to Your Table

December holidays center around food and entertaining, so one of the best places to incorporate a nautical theme in your holiday décor is on your table. Create table centerpieces using seashells, starfish, smooth beach rocks, and candles. Alternatively, you can carry the blue-and-white theme into the dining room, with lovely place settings and centerpieces that make further use of the nautical theme.

Bring the Beach to the Christmas Tree

Whether you’re the artistic type who loves to create your own ornaments or you prefer to collect uniquely made pieces from favorite crafters, there is no shortage of beach-oriented Christmas decorations to be had. Starfish and seashells can be used in place of bows and balls, and clear, fillable ornaments can be used to create your own beachscape ornaments – just add a little sand and a few small shells, and voila!
