Coastal Christmas Decorating Ideas

When you choose a new home builder in Jacksonville Beach FL, like Glenn Layton Homes, you end up with a stunning coastal home that nestles perfectly in the surrounding landscape. You can create that same great customized fit with your holiday decorations, combining Christmas and coastal features to create a truly cozy, festive display.

Start things off with a coastal-themed wreath for your front door. Instead of the traditional greenery, see if you can find some braided rope to turn into a wreath. Finish it off with some beachy greenery, real or fabric, and a collection of shells and starfish. This design works well throughout the year, so you could always add in a few Christmas baubles during the season.

Stock up on shells (found or store-bought) and add them to some green garland to wrap around your stair rails. String up the shells and intertwine them with the garland — and perhaps some small lights — for an elegant, festive touch.

Now is a great time to visit local artists and shops that make all kinds of things out of local materials, such as driftwood and shells. You’ll find everything from driftwood reindeer to shell Christmas trees, allowing you to add a coastal nod to Christmas while supporting local artists and small shops.

If you have model ships or sea lanterns among your regular decorations, give them a festive update, with a simple mix of greenery and glass baubles, in blue or green, scattered around the base. A mix of sizes of white and blue baubles surrounding a model ship can look like festive water and waves.

For the kids, have some fun with old colorful beach towels and turn them into stockings to be hung by the chimney with care on Christmas Eve.

For your dining table, a collection of large and small shells, with sand dollars scattered amid some candles creates a simple but attractive table centerpiece. In addition, use rattan or wicker chargers for the base, along with plain white plates, with linen napkins neatly centered on the plate, topped with a few snips of cypress and a personalized shell finishing off the display, creating a lovely seating arrangement.

Coastal colors of white and blue are great, whether you’re celebrating Hanukkah or Christmas. They call to mind the cooler temperatures the rest of the country is dealing with while you’re enjoying more moderate temperatures and walks along the beach. Deck your sun room with blue sofa and chair cushions, white pillows, and aqua throws, with a few small pine trees or wreaths for the finishing touch.

These are just a few ways to decorate a variety of rooms in your custom coastal homes. One of the many benefits of choosing a new home builder in Jacksonville Beach FL, such as Glenn Layton, is the opportunity to make the most of indoor/outdoor living all year long, enabling you to add coastal holiday decorations throughout your home.
