The Santa Ana winds are blowing and fires are raging in Southern California, but the air here is already beginning to take on a holiday chill!
Even Mr Jones seems to have made it through the fall allergy season and is diving head-first into the holiday spirit, donning one of our early-arrival wreath bases, soon to be elf-decorated as part of our new coastal wreath collection.
Halloween may still be a few weeks away, but the Nautical Luxuries elves are already well into their preparations for the coming holiday season.
The new holiday line includes many classic designs in the finest materials like sheer organza or gilded gold and cloisonne enamel for a truly elegant coastal look.
Each year, we feature a new Santa and Angel treetopper/centerpiece duo - this year's pair are truly stunning. At two-feet tall, they make an extraordinary table centerpiece.
Natural seashells and starfish are the most popular coastal holiday decor theme. Our most popular natural ornaments have been our Deep Sea Natural Shells. We've added a new Starfish Ornament Set this year in natural or antique gold finish.
As in past years, we're offering fresh and preserved coastal wreaths. The fresh SeaKeepers Wreaths are such a treat - to give or receive! Since they're dependent on the growth of foliage in the Pacific Northwest, their availability is limited to a very brief window of just five weeks a year.
This year, shipping dates will be between Nov. 10th and Dec. 16th. Not only do they look beautiful with natural sand dollars and starfish set against lush green foliage, but the wonderful aroma of evergreens is a most pleasant experience from the moment you open the box, to the little whips of scent you capture every time you walk by.
A percentage of the sale of each wreath goes to supports the International SeaKeeper Society's efforts to monitor the conditions of our planet's oceans.
