This whimsical look captures the sparkle of sunlight on water to bring the beauty of the ocean indoors for the holidays. Under the Sea provides an unexpected departure from traditional decorating themes, but is no less beautiful than more classic looks. While most people decorate with shells and coral in the warmer months, it’s fun to incorporate these items, along with other nautical details like rope knots and anchors, into a holiday display. Shell-encrusted candles and glass spheres filled with swirling water, sand, and shells compliment this theme and carry out the luminous, aquatic feel throughout your home.
At Pottery World Rocklin, we used a four-foot flat Christmas tree to showcase many of the gorgeous items available in this look. Iridescent blown-glass balls reminiscent of bubbles shimmer among the branches near glass ornaments in the shapes of fish, shells, and other sea creatures. Gilded coral and sea stars,, beautifully detailed mermaids perched in jeweled shells, and dripping pearl garlands all add their own festive touch. These magical decorations make wonderful gifts on their own, and together create the perfect seaside themed tree for a beach or lake house.
