by the seashore Christmas tree...I have done a nautical tree..I used sand dollars, starfish, clam & scallop shells, etc..fish, (puffer fish look great) I used clear round balls of different sizes ( look like bubbles) & then use fish net or jute for a wrap around look..
Tip #1: Think Overscale Our first tree illustrates a technique that most home decorators miss: using overscaled ornaments. The large silver balls and stars have a huge impact. Though oversized decorations may cost a bit more, you won't need many (about a dozen for an average size tree), and the effect will be stunning.
Put a Ribbon On It - Use contrasting colors, like lilac ribbon and turquoise ornaments, to create your own unique color scheme. Match place settings and presents to tie the room together
