How to Add a Little Coastal Flair to Your Christmas Decor

Christmas is a beautiful time of year filled with family, friends, food and all things joy and merriment. We relish the change of season, taking the time to welcome a new and quieter pace on our shores of the Outer Banks. However, like any other beach lover, we love incorporating some of the most beautiful beach themes into our seasonal decor and giving our holiday tables a distinct coastal flair that reminds us of the beauty of the beach.

We know you have a lot on your plate already (pun not intended ?) with menu planning for the holidays, making sure there are plenty of amazing dishes on the table to feed an army, and even planning your family coming for a visit for the holidays. We thought it would be nice for us to give you some decor inspirations to help you on your holiday decorating adventure!


These beautiful wreaths are some of our favorite. Sea shells and starfish make these traditional holiday decorations stand out coastal style!

Wonderful coastal textures of dried grasses and collected seashells are brought together in unexpected colors to form this full-sized wreath. What a cool way to welcome the warmer seasons ahead.

Keep a bit of the beach close to home with this beautiful wood curl wreath featuring faux seashells and starfish. The nautical shades of navy & tan evoke memories of seaside summers all year.

A one-of-a-kind handcrafted wreath featuring farm-raised botanicals. Composed of oats, grass, a variety of shells, sea urchins, starfish and twigs, it’s a design you’ll enjoy for years of indoor or covered outdoor use.
