Some are simple, some are glittery and some are nearly traditional…Beachy Christmas Mantels can certainly be fun to create no matter style you choose! Are you a traditional (red & gold) decorator or do you love beachy blues in your holiday decorating? Ho, ho, ho!
One Kings Lane offers great discounts, however it was this Coastal Christmas mantel that caught our attention!
Blue & Pale Green combined with shells and starfish makes a pretty beach house mantel!
Layla of The Lettered Cottage really never gets it wrong as far as her decorating is concerned. This adorable Christmas mantel design incorporates her driftwood boats and other things she loves.
Some fresh evergreens and white Christmas lights makes this beach house mantel….simply festive.
A Beach Cottage created this “non-mantel” a few years ago and this Beach Cottage Christmas design always makes us swoon.
I shared this beachy Christmas mantel last month (I think) but it deserves to be in this article because….well….I simply love it! Check out Beachcomber’s blog for more beautiful inspiration like this.
Inspired Nesting included a starfish Santa Clause as well as traditional greens in her Christmas mantel design.

This Seashell Candle Centerpiece photo has been super-popular on Pinterest over the past week. Honestly, after writing blog posts for five years I really can’t remember all the wonderful coastal ideas that we’ve shared with you. This particular coastal centerpiece idea is from an article written by our contributing editor, Caron White, back in November 2012. Check out Decorating with Candlelight at the Coast for more beautiful candlelight ideas!
The above SEA candle holder was created by my daughter and I back in October 2011 (wow, time flies!). I’m still using these around the beach cottage and they were simple to create. Check out the original article, Seawashed Fog & Sea Candle Holders, now!
Still one of our personal favorites, these Lighthouse Candle Holders are a DIY project made from simple materials.
Candlelight Ideas for Fall at the Coast — This is such a simple, easy trick to add a beautiful warm cozy feeling to your coastal home!
Doesn’t have to be expensive, and you can probably put together any number of things that you already have in your home – just use more neutral or “autumn” types of colors; amber sea glass, white shells, vanilla votives – here’s a few ideas to get started!
My friend Cami’s creation! Found sea glass and pretty autumn scented pillars

Grey beach stones mixed with found weathered seashells – so beachy! via
And finally a peak at our fall centerpiece for this year!
I love this big flat bamboo bowl that I found several years ago, it’s my treasure “collector” when we walk in the door from the beach. Shells, driftwood, sea glass, stones, even a few acorns that we picked up in Napa. Then I added to our collection with pear-scented dark green candles, dried Autumn gourds and my saved orange tumbled glass from last year.
I am a big believer in making decorating at the beach easy – and always a reflection of who you are. Creating an easy centerpiece with found “found” seaside objects is just one more way to accomplish that.
