Today I am going to show you 25 blue and silver coastal Christmas tree tips that will help you decorate a classy beach themed Christmas tree. If you are looking for coastal inspired decorating ideas and tips, I will show you how to create an elegant coastal Christmas tree on a budget.
There are several ways to decorate a beachy Christmas tree but the first place to start is to ask yourself, “which coastal Christmas theme inspires me?”
Do you want a blue and silver Christmas theme? Mixing and matching textures like burlap, plaid, jute, sisal and beachy Christmas ornaments will help you infuse a coastal feel.
White Flocked Coastal Christmas Tree
A faux flocked Christmas tree is the perfect type of tree if you are looking for an authentic classy beachy themed tree. The faux white snow adds a real life feel as if the tree was just cut down from a snow filled forest. Elegant white christmas tree decor also looks beautiful hung on a flocked tree.
Coastal Christmas Ornaments
When picking coastal Christmas decor for a tree, I try to stay within the same color theme. For example, this blue and white Christmas tree is filled with white coastal christmas ornaments ranging from seahorse ornaments, seashell ornaments, sea crab ornaments, sand dollar and starfish ornaments.
Mixing in blue (like these), white (these are gorgeous!) or sand colored Christmas ornament tree balls are fairly inexpensive and a great way to fill a tree. I like to hang the larger ball ornaments (like these glass floats) towards the center of the tree and the smaller ornaments towards the outside.
I love how the white ceramic seahorse and seashell ornaments coordinate with the light blue ornament balls wrapped in a jute netting. Jute and sisal are two organic textures that are a must when it comes to coastal Christmas decorating.
To keep our beach themed Christmas tree classic and classy, I stayed with very light colored tones all within the white, blue and sand/brown color theme.
I purchased two 15 foot Jute roping pieces and wrapped the roping around the tree starting at the top working my way to the bottom. Jute roping is the perfect Christmas tree garland especially for Coastal Christmas trees.
The burlap bow was handmade out of burlap fabric and offers a sophisticated coastal tree topper in under 5 minutes.
Coastal Christmas decorations
Coastal decorating whether it be for Christmas or everyday living, typically mimics soft pale blues, earthy tones and white colors offering a calming coastal living feel. Something about the water (ocean or lake) creates a calm and relaxing feeling.

Sea and beach inspired coastal Christmas decorations such as ornaments, tree skirts, throw pillows, decorative gift boxes, stockings, and decorative accessories all help to create a festive coastal themed Christmas.
I used a plain white faux fur tree skirt to keep things simple and classic. There are several beach decor themed tree skirts to pick from but I personally prefer a more elegant coastal theme so I opted for the neutral white tree skirt.
Often times, beach Christmas ornaments or beach Christmas decor can be busy with bold colors so it’s a delicate balance when decorating a coastal space for the holidays.

These are Christmas pictures from years past that I had taken during one of our family Christmas card photo shoots. I was wearing these pajamas in our red Christmas tree living room and while the red color scheme somewhat clashes with this blue and white Christmas tree, I think the pictures are still cute!
