a very beachy Christmas

How about a few beachy accents in your 
Christmas decor this year? 

A Front Porch Christmas Tree

Starfish, seashells, and casual, rustic fabrics like linen and burlap can add just the right touch.

Starfish are always so festive

Glitz it up with vintage silver and blue ornaments  

A huge shell filled with "pearly" globes
Add some evergreens to the mix

Nautical rope, fresh greenery and decorative starfish is all you need here

This little abode reminds me of a sand castle

Seashells and Succulents from Tresor le Mer

 Succulents have the perfect beachy look

a little touch of red

all shells in Newport Beach

Different types of starfish on the wreath, mantle and in jars

Iridescent Abalone trees at MerMade Designs

Mercury Glass ornaments at MerMade

Simply silver and white
Sparkly and simple 

A very Martha tree

Become the hostess with the mostest

Vintage blue glass ornaments in a rustic vessel 

Gold, teal, white and lovely

Love this turquoise color

Succulent trees

Party Time! 

A very Swedish idea

Peace for the holidays

So fun!

I love these stockings!

Orange County is the perfect place to show off 
these beautiful citrus elements...

Citrus madness, but it works!


So easy and pretty

Last minute idea

Our weather is so mild, why not shop on your bike?

  14. Thanks for the inspiration. I want to add just a touch of coastal to some of my decorations. I love the layered fruit too. Just what I needed today!

  21. Some incredibly beautiful images, thanks! I'm just wondering, though, how long those fruit ornaments, wreaths and accents last before they start to, you know, "turn." And it seems such a waste to throw them out afterward. Listen to me - I sound like a Depression child.

  22. Thanks so much for all of the terrific Holiday decor inspiration - you've given me some great ideas! Happy Holidays, Fabiana.

  23. Thanks a lot for compiling these Christmas decor inspirations especially those beautiful Christmas tree ideas. They are very helpful since my family and I are starting to decorate our very own tree this weekend. Thanks for sharing!
