    We just moved into our new home the day before Thanksgiving so we are keeping things simple – tree, white lights and lots of poinsettias and candles everywhere.

    Upstairs is done in tomato red and lime green including my lifesize velvet reindeer. Downstairs is decorated in aqua, white, and silver with "snow" sprinkled everywhere. Outside is red, white, and hits of royal blue.

    Seashells and seahorses were inspirations on my sister's 40th birthday. She loves the beach and what better way to celebrate it with this theme on party favors and cake decorations.

  7. Susan P. says:

    I hang long decorated garlands down the stair rail and on top of the sliding glass doors. Wreath on the door and Xmas decorations around the house.

    This is our first Christmas in our new house. We now live in a beach community. This year the tree will be filled with all new nautical/beach themed decorations. I purchased beautiful shell & sea critter ornaments.

    Born and raised in sunny Florida, I deem myself a total beach girl. However, my current residence in Upstate New York keeps me away from my palm tree-lined paradise. So this year I bid farewell to reds and greens, and embraced sea foam blue, cream white, and gold. So refreshing and sweet. I spray painted some of last year's decorations to match my new color scheme and brought in some dried branches for a beachy feel. All that is missing are some throw pillows and sand in my toes.
