Beach-Inspired Christmas

If you love the beach like I do, you may want to display your beach finds this holiday season.  I use most of my shells and found objects in my decor all year round, especially Christmas.  Here are a few inspirational photos that I found at Better Home and Gardens to help you get started. 



If you have starfish already, all you need is ribbon to create this look with candles.

  1. I love these ideas! Thank you for sharing. I just moved out to the coast from Colorado and it hardly feels like Christmas without family and without the snow (I do not miss the cold!). I am working as a designer in a great firm, and am loving it out here. These are perfect little ways to help combine my new coastal home and the holidays. Thank you, Thank you,

  8. All things beachy, yep, that's just what I love. I keep telling myself to make one of the seashell swags and I do believe that 2011 will be the year I listen! They are so wonderful and mine would hang all year round.

    Thanks for joining Maya's Party! Happy Beachy 2011!

  9. What lovely photos. I'd like to step into any one of those rooms. I especially like the shell garland.
