Deck the halls, Tybee style! This season, make your holiday sparkle a little brighter with expert coastal decorating tips from Tybee Vacations Rentals' Decorating Team. While we don't have One-Horse-Open Sleighs, you can still sing a sleighing song while riding your bike on the beach! Get your bells ready to jingle all-the-way to remind you of a Tybee Island Christmas. Here are our top decorating tips that will transform your space into a elegant beach themed holiday! 

Table-top Decor

To create an elegant beachy centerpiece, fill large crystal bowls or large canisters with shiny, bright ornaments. Choose ornaments that vary in size to create a more interesting look. Add subtle contrast by tossing in a hand full of cranberries, and let them settle in various places around the ornaments. To finish your centerpiece, add candles and intersperse neutral colored starfish in or around your bowl. Just like that, you'll have an eye-catching beach themed centerpiece perfect for a conversation starter during the holidays.

Beachy Tree Ornaments  

If coastal color is what you are after, stroll along the beach and find some intact sand dollars that are not alive and unique seashells. Gather a few friends and pull out your paintbrushes. Add a personal touch to your beachy holiday decor and turn your ordinary shells into holiday ornaments. Choose from a range of coastal colors such as turquoise blue, lime green, and of course Pink! Your holiday guests will love seeing your masterpieces hanging on the tree.

Mantle-scape Decorating

Don't forget to add bright, fun pieces to your design. On Tybee, we love to make use of greenery, starfish, seashells and sand dollars. Try to contrast your neutral tones with shades of teal and of course bright Pink! Visit your local gift store, and keep an eye out for fun and funky pieces that will highlight your beachy Christmas decor. Grab a set of twinkle lights and wrap them around some greenery to make an elegant mantle-scape. Don't forget to place candles throughout your masterpiece for a warm evening glow.
