I’ve never lived in a place where I can still wear tank tops or sleeveless dresses at the end of November. Now, I do – well, except for today because I could do with a sweater or something because it’s pretty windy out today. It’s not *quite* 80 degrees here today. I heard from a friend that it dipped into the 20’s recently back in Virginia. Scarves, hats and jackets are normal for this time of year. Strapless dresses are not.
This year – I’m not dreaming of a “white” Christmas – that is, unless it’s a “white” sandy beach!
I’m getting so many beautiful ideas from – of course – Pinterest!
I’ve already decided to take the kids on a hunt for shells/ seaglass/ etc. so we can make some pretty Beach-inspired ornaments. There aren’t many “big” shells here on Oahu, but there are certainly small (“puka”) shells to be found!
Another item I’ve been on the hunt for has been strands of ‘star’ shaped Christmas lights! I don’t know why – but I’m a little obsessed with them.
I’m planning on having our family photo taken on the beach – with red ‘Hawaiian’ inspired attire of course! This is our first Christmas here in Hawaii so I’m going to milk it for all it’s worth! The beach portrait will be our family Holiday card this year. Sure, it’s lame and “touristy” – but hey – I’ve always been one to let my nerd-flag fly high!
What are your plans for your holiday decor? Where are you getting your inspiration from?
