To the left, I kept my big bird cage and added some yellow and gold tones plus a little beach plaque from my decor stash.
Then I added a garland to the front of the mantel. I took 4 strands of jute string and wound it together, then tied on sand dollars and star fish that I got at Christmas Tree Shops. A simple beachy look in about 10 minutes! (Now I can cross it off my to-do list!)
For the dining room table, I changed out the centerpiece and added several canning jars with candles and a taller canning jar with more shells from the beach.
A few quick updates for a more neutral, calm, beachy summer mantel!
