Holiday Coastal Living Table Setting Bliss!

I just love these ideas! Of course darlins I live in Sunny Southern California, so it is easy for me to dress up our table for the Holidays in such fun, ocean inspired style! But you can too! Think outside the box and beachside! My favs are Seaglass and Driftwood and Cool Blues of course! But I also love Coral and Shimmer! So do something different for the holidays this year and go Coastal! Thanks to Coastal Living Magazine! It is from their latest issue! Check out the links below! Enjoy!

6 Looks for Your Holiday Table

Find the setting that caters to your coastal style.


  • Giant marbles are great for keeping the flowers in place, and they’re made from recycled materials. A driftwood garland would also look great draped on a mantel for the holidays.

    Seaglass & Driftwood



  • The combination of this rustic table surface and the refined serving elements create a high-low decorating mix.

    Coral & Shimmer



  • Vary the size of the bottles and woven patterns on the wicker casings so they look collected over time. Use twine to attach these metal anchors to the napkin. Tied with a simple bow, they’re a great gift for guests.

    Maps, Rope, & Wicker



  • Silver accents sparkle when paired with dinnerware in watery hues.

    Cool Blues



  • Texture—from smooth mother-of-pearl to rough pebbles—adds interest to a soft, white setting.

    Natural Neutrals



  • Go for drama with starkly contrasting plates and accessories. Hammered-metal accents complement the theme.

    Bold Black and White
