The market has a lot of affordable beach toys that you can buy like shovels, buckets and sea shells. Add some fun colorful items like sunglasses, colourful flip flops and transparent bowls filled with sand. Put citrus scented candles in the bowls as they will stand out. A bright beach towel with picnic baskets placed on it will give an interesting effect. Place it strategically so that it’s away from the fire. Drape the towel on the mantle sides. The candles should coordinate with the colours of other beach items. Buy candle holders in different shapes and purchase candles shaped like shells and other numerous beach items. The whole corner would give a very summery effect.
Red, white and blue are bold colours that bring life to any room. Buy dyed carnations or dried flowers in these colours. You could get many paper made decorations in these three colours from a simple hobby store. Buy a galvanized bucket and fill it up with sand and coloured rocks. Fix small American flags in the sand as this will make a beautiful centerpiece. A blue and red table cloth can be used as a base with confetti scattered on it. Add blue and red candles for a perfect touch.
Fruits and flowers
Ivy and fern make an amazing base. It will require a little more care and maintenance if you are using fresh flowers and greens. If you want to avoid the hassle, go for artificial greens and spray fragrance to them. Citrus fruit clusters with jasmine flowers will bring a lot of colour to the room. Use daisies if you want less fragrance. There are numerous options in artificial flowers.
