We’re Dreaming of a White (Sand) Christmas | Beachy Ornaments You Need RN

One of my favorite things about going home for the holidays is decorating our Christmas tree. Like most parents, mine saved all of our handmade creations from when we were kids, my favorite being a cutout gingerbread man made purely of brown construction paper, crayons, and a green pipe cleaner.

 

Our tree may not be “beautiful” in a photographed for Town & Country way, but it reminds us of the simplicity and excitement of our youth as well as our different (and very short) musical instrument and sport phases.

 

While my ornaments are mostly old arts & craft projects and Madeline-themed, I’ve recently started collecting more summer inspired knick-knacks to embrace my number #1 wish on every Christmas list—my own beach obsessed brand. Below are some I’m currently eyeing that I know you will love too!

 

Pink Seashell JOY

$40 from The Mermaids Box on Etsy

 This beautiful ornament from Etsy combines a quintessential Christmas sentiment with vintage and found seashells in our favorite shades of pink. We love it for our tree this year or just to hang in our office for a pink pick-me-up this holiday season!

 

Feathered Flamingo Ornament

$20 at Anthropologie

 For us to truly be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons this Christmas season, we’re loving the idea of trading in our reindeer and snowmen for a sparkly and feathered pink flamingo ornament. This one from Anthropologie will surely stand out from the crowd.

 

Sunny Life Pineapple Ornament

$7 at Shopbop

 A pineapple a day keeps the scrooge away! That’s the saying, right? The pineapple is largely used in the South to convey hospitality, warmth, and friendship, which is why we think a pineapple ornament is perfect for welcoming family and friends in for some hot chocolate and holiday cheer this winter. At only $7, we especially love this Sunny Life one.

 

Blowfish Ornament

$7.50 at Pottery Barn

 If the puffer fish in Finding Nemo was your favorite character, you’ll love this beautiful pink glass blowfish ornament from Pottery Barn. While you’re online shopping, check out their other sea-inspired decorations, including angel fish, seashells, and lifesavers.
