Her house is so cute and already filled with beach-inspired decor so I really didn't have to do a lot.
I scattered mason jars around that I'd half filled with sand (having a beach 10 minutes away is so convenient for stuff like this) and I stuck tea lights in them to make pretty candles.
More mason jar candles on top of a map of the ocean.
I used palm fronds that my husband cut from our yard and put them in vases of water around the house.
Shells around the bowls and platters of food
I made these pictures for the prizes for the games we played...
...come back Friday to see how I made them!
