Dreaming of a Beachy White ChristmasIt's not a snowy one, though! It's a white sandy one this year. Deck the halls with white, white everywhere by adding touches of the beach around every corner with pale whites in your wreaths, ornaments and garlands. It's one of the easiest and prettiest ways to bring the warmth of both the beach and the holidays into your home.

Go Bold, Bright & Tropical with Your ColorsStep out of tradition and replace the usual holiday red and greens with vibrant, bold colors that reflect a tropical, beach-inspired vibe this Christmas. From your trees to your ornaments to your wreaths and everything in between, a simple change in the holiday color palate is a simple yet effective way to make your beach home merry and bright.

Deck the Halls with Lots of SeashellsSeashells are the quintessential beach element that can be added to just about anything anywhere in your home. Try adding seashells to your door wreath where the evergreen background only enhances the white seashell adornment. Mini trees made with seashells are an amazing accompaniment to your mantel. The green garland that graces the banister of your stairs can have an extra beachy touch with the addition to some fabulous seashells as focal points.

Set an Ocean-Inspired Coastal TableTo make your holiday meal extra special and extra coastal, choose a sea-and-sand-inspired table setting reflective of the shoreline. Pairing simple white dishes with a beachy blue tablecloth sets the stage for other unique coastal additions to your coastal holiday table. Or reverse it with bright blue plates on a white table cloth. Sand dollars, sea shells and starfish are only a few of the many embellishments that can be added as the finishing touches on your coastal holiday spread.
