Beach Garland Ideas

We go through some of the best beach themed garland ideas below. Whether you are looking for coastal, tropical, or nautical garland ideas, we will give you tips for buying or DIY projects.

Wedding Beach Garlands

One of our favorite options at beach weddings are incorporating nautical garlands that feature things like seashells, anchors, starfish, and more. You can find all sorts of things for your dream wedding day so you have the right garland decor.

Christmas Beach Garland

If you are trying to create your own garland for the holiday season or if you are looking to purchase one, there are plenty of things to consider. Many Christmas beach garlands feature shells with classic Christmas colors like green and red. In addition, they will have other Christmas themes included like snowflakes, Christmas trees, and more.

Seashell and Starfish Garlands

For the most part, we listed seashell and starfish themed garlands above. We featured seashells like clams, sand dollars, conch shells, and more that you find on the sand or in the ocean. Seashells are perfect for garlands because you can easily purchase the shells you want to use, make small holes, and put rope or twine through the holes for hanging. Not only can you hang a garland during your wedding day, but you can also use them during the holiday season.

Garland Size

You will see seashell and starfish garlands above that range in size drastically. There are garlands that are 1 feet all the way up to 9 feet. For the most part, you will find options between 4-7 feet. My recommendation is to take rope, twine, string, or fishing line and wrap it around your Christmas tree or measure the area you need the garland. You should be able to come up with a rough estimate so you don’t purchase a 6 foot string seashell garland that only fills out half of your tree or isn’t large enough for your event.

Garland DIY

All you need to create garlands is rope or twine, the beach, coastal, or nautical themed pieces you want to use, and a small drill to make holes in something like seashells, anchors, or mermaids. You don’t need a ton of material to make starfish or DIY seashell garlands, which can really come in handy during Christmas, during a Wedding, during a baby shower, or during a kids birthday party.

In Summary

Whether you are decorating for a large event, party, wedding, or you need Christmas decorations, beach and nautical garlands are great options. The starfish and seashell garlands above are mostly on rope and they are wonderful regardless of the setting.

Nautical Wedding Favors

nautical wedding favors

Nautical wedding favors are becoming more and more popular, especially since having a themed wedding is growing in popularity for brides and grooms. Many people who love the seaside will want those same elements surrounding them when they get married. You want everything to flow perfectly from the centerpieces to the flowers and even the wedding favors.

Nautical wedding favors are usually offered at your guests seats as a sign of appreciation from the couple. You do it at the reception so people have something to go home with to remember your wedding. Finding nautical wedding favors is pretty easy actually because it is a popular theme. However, whether you decide to go with anchor wedding favors or something like mason jar wedding favors depends on your tastes. One thing to keep in mind is some favors work better for males while others work better for females.

Anchor Wedding Favors

You can find fun anchor wedding favors in a huge variety including wine bottle stoppers and bottle openers. They can be little anchors made from sugar or other sweets. They could be anchor shaped biscuits and candy. It could also be little paper weights or even buttons. There is a lovely selection of mason jars you can then decorate with anchors if everything else fails to impress.



Compass Wedding Favors

A compass is one’s best friend when at sea so it continues the nautical theme quite well. Perhaps you can find some old compasses or perhaps they could be photos of old compasses in picture frames. You can get creative with this since there is no wrong way. No, the terrible, cheap, plastic compasses would definitely be the wrong thing. Go real and get something beautiful, since you only get married once.



Seashell Wedding Favors

Seashells are the best reminders of the beach. You can buy real seashells online or go gather your own if you live close enough to a beach. Put them in little jars and make decorations out of them. If you want favors of the edible kind, bake biscuits or make chocolate in the form of seashells. It’s as easy as that, and people will appreciate them.

Perhaps you can find little seashell notepads and pencils as wedding favors to give your special day that little more character. People like little practical things that also remind them about the amazing event that they have helped to create.



Lighthouse Wedding Favors

Lighthouses are among the most iconic nautical objects and there is always an air of mystery around lighthouses. They are also a symbol of homecoming as well as hope and light.

You can find different ideas for lighthouse themed little things that work well as wedding favors. Little picture frames with little lighthouses on them or in them and that would probably be the most practical of ways.



Boat Wedding Favors

Boats will bring you on a journey and they will bring you home again. Boats are the symbol of safety and a tranquil journey. Even though the waters are sometimes rough, a boat will be your guide home to a lighthouse. So wedding favors that are boat shaped invite your guests to go on a journey with you.


In Summary

It doesn’t matter whether your wedding favors are edible or practical, or maybe they are more a symbol than anything else, your guests will appreciate you going that extra mile to create something that is special and unique.

It is the best way to create memories of journeys you will now be able to go on together. People tend to keep the wedding favors if they can because they hold so much meaning. I know I still have a candle and a shot glass from two separate weddings I’ve been to. So when you are looking for nautical wedding favors, hopefully you can find what you need above!
