A Beachy Christmas
With no real decorations My friend Becky and I managed to create a beach side Christmas tree, We pulled some ribbons off of packages we brought, used seashells on strings for garland and used a colorful mermaid for a tree top angel!
The theme for gift wrap was burlap bags (easy to tote on the plane and wildly popular this year, burlap is used on upholstery, window treatments and linens) with turquoise and orange ribbons.
We handcrafted taper candle holders for our dinner from water bottles. We cut the tops off had a craft day under swaying palm trees and salt air and decorated with paper, bits of twine, glitter messages, and ribbons. We used sand from the beach to anchor the candles in place, then lit them all at dinner for a magical beach ambiance!
