Candlelight Ideas for Fall at the Coast

This is such a simple, easy trick to add a beautiful warm cozy feeling to your coastal home!

Doesn't have to be expensive, and you can probably put together any number of things that you already have in your home - just use more neutral or "autumn" types of colors; amber sea glass, white shells, vanilla votives - here's a few ideas to get started!

My friend Cami's creation! Found sea glass and pretty autumn scented pillars




Mason jars, grey beach sand and white votives.  Ocean Elegant!

Easy candle hurricanes complete with beach sand, simple tapers, caramel and white shells.

Grey beach stones mixed with found weathered seashells - so beachy!

And finally a peak at our fall centerpiece for this year!


I love this big flat bamboo bowl that I found several years ago, it's my treasure "collector" when we walk in
the door from the beach.  Shells, driftwood, sea glass, stones, even a few acorns that we picked up in Napa.   Then I added to our collection with pear-scented dark green candles, dried Autumn gourds and my saved
orange tumbled glass from last year. 


I am a big believer in making decorating at the beach easy - and always a reflection of who you are.  Creating an easy centerpiece with found "found" seaside objects is just one more way to accomplish that.
