Seaside Decorating for the Holidays

Come home for the holidays to a festive delight of seaside wreaths, a mantel garland bright with starfish and sand dollars, bold red Amaryllis clustered under bell jars, decorated lobster buoys, and baskets of holly and cranberries, all designed with the creative vision of Ann Smith, designer for Yarmouthport’s Harvest of Barnstable. Everywhere you look there is something wonderful to see; the golden spires of slender trees, snow white reindeer, and country-style Santas decked out in gingham suits; there is hearth-side magic in this lovely Sandwich home. “This home by the marsh inspired me to fill the house with coastal treasures,” says Smith, who also decorated the dining and kitchen areas with coordinating seaside themes. The Harvest of Barnstable shop is a cornucopia of everything holiday, from seaside supplies to make your own decorations, to a glittering array of gifts from jewelry to coastal-themed rugs. Be sure to see the shop’s Nantucket baskets of blooming paperwhites assembled with love by the LIFE Cape Cod program for adults with learning disabilities.

Our vision was to design an elegant tablescape with a modern twist creating a quintessential Christmas, yet distinctive and unusual holiday ambiance,” says designer Kathy Coady of Yarmouthport’s New Angle Designs, noting that some of the stunning elements for the design were provided by Setting the Space in Plymouth. “The antique china creates a charming vintage look given holiday cheer with delicate mercury glass trees complemented by seasonal decorations. For a finishing touch, we added an abundance of fresh Cape Cod greens,” says the designer, noting New Angle Designs works with homeowners to create customized looks for the holidays. “A professional designer can help you create your own personal holiday magic,” says Coady.
