Creating a festive Christmas table does not always involve using "traditional" holiday elements - especially when you want to add a touch of coastal living to your style.
How about using "classic" holidays color tones; red, green, silver and sparkles, just mix it up by using those same colors in seashell and beach themes.
Voila'! You have now created a whole new look using elements that you may already have; glitter shell ornaments, seashells, silvered seashells and beach etched glassware, and coastal themed table linens. I use these pretty red coral ones for summer and for Christmas! My centerpiece was simply put together with coral candles that I have had for several years, my ever-expanding shell and sea glass collection, and a few small silvered ornaments.
I think it all turned out rather festive! Have a wonderful weekend, we are headed down the coast tomorrow to explore the holiday decorations and
maybe have a romantic lunch in
Carmel By The Sea. Hoping that we are able to capture some good images to share!
P.S. Here are a few of the beach table scape items that I used!
