When you think of dressing your home for the holidays, you probably think of pine door wreaths, green holly with sprigs of berries, tartan plaids, candy canes, garlands for bannisters and mantels, poinsettia plants, blue spruce trees, stockings, etc. But we are here to tell you to ignore the usual red and green and allow seascapes from the Gulf Coast to inspire your holiday mood.
Imagine using seashells and driftwood on tablescapes, a light green menorah with blue candles, a centerpiece constructed entirely of glass vases filled with sand and white candles! Do you normally use Christmas china on your holiday table? Consider some sea-foam glass plates, with airy blue napkins in seashell holders, clear glassware, and then sprinkle blue and green candy canes around the table. Or scatter shells, glass balls, silver snowflakes, or miniature fish at each place setting. Use nautical place mats instead of a traditional tartan cloth, and use rustic rope, wooden boat models, and mini life preservers to tell your own story.
