Modern Coastal Easter Decor

Easter is right around the corner!  The Pineapple Girls love using modern coastal elements to add a fun and interesting twist to the traditional ways of decorating and displaying Easter eggs.

We were looking for ways to style a coffee table for an upcoming Easter gathering and decided to use these new white rope lanterns that just came in to the store. We love the coastal look of these lanterns, which can be used to hold candles…or even Easter Eggs!

Here is a quick and easy tutorial for how to use the lanterns to create a stylish coffee table for Easter:

Happy Easter from The Pineapple Girls!

The Pineapple Girls love Perle by Lola  jewelry.  The collection features beautiful necklaces and bracelets that were created by a Parisian born designer who was inspired by the seas of Miami, St. Tropez and St. Barth. Her pieces use natural and organic elements, like freshwater pearls and semi-precious stones. The jewelry is coastal and contemporary.

How To Create A Beautiful Centerpiece For Your Fall Gathering

In Florida, we love embracing the Fall season in a coastal and sophisticated way. Fall decor does not have to go in an obvious direction, utilizing only an orange palette. The Pineapple Girls adore the simplicity and elegance of white pumpkins.  To create a beautiful centerpiece, pair a few white pumpkins with an organic bowl and some fresh flowers. A white antler adds a modern touch.

We love using natural elements in home decor, and bringing the outdoors inside is a great trend for Fall. The Palecek River Stick Lanterns below are composed of assorted natural driftwood, and were hand-formed into a hurricane with a glass insert. We love the organic look, and how the air bubbles, swirls and discoloration in the glass is part of the natural beauty of the hand-blown recycled glass.

The Ultimate Coastal Pumpkin Decoration

Traditional autumnal color schemes- browns, yellows, and reds- don’t always work in a modern, beach-inspired space. The clean colors of a chic coastal home, such as blue and white, often clash with the conventional pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns found during this spooky time of the year. There are some ways to adapt your Halloween decorating to meld well with your coastal style, and that will still bring a holiday touch to your decor this fall.

Some ways to create coastal-inspired pumpkins and décor include:

Decoupage.

Decoupage Pumpkin

Decoupage is an excellent way to change the looks of an ordinary pumpkin, without losing the autumnal flavor that these gourds possess. Soaking strips of paper, foil, or even fall leaves in decoupage glue, which dries clear, allows you to place them securely on the pumpkin shell. Use scraps of wallpaper, or fabric,  that embody your home’s color scheme to make a cohesive accent that you will be proud to display in your home.

Nautical Carvings.

If you are able to find a white pumpkin (or want to paint one), give it a coastal look by carving a starfish or other sea creature design instead of traditional Halloween carvings. Glue small seashells in the shape of an anchor or other nautical symbol, and use natural moss around the stem. These will reflect the soothing, tranquil style of your  home, while also paying homage to the Halloween holiday.

Pumpkin ideas

We created this look with chevron patterned duct tape and high gloss enamel white paint to use as a store display. It works perfectly with our white slipcovered sofas and blue and white patterned pillows that perfectly melds the two styles creating a relaxed coastal style.

Paint.

coastal pumpkin ideasPerhaps the simplest treatment for a beach-inspired pumpkin is paint; you may choose to paint them all-white, blue, or other ocean-inspired shade. Leave the stem unpainted, and allow to fully dry. A bright, oceanic blue makes a great accent when displayed in pairs on your patio, lanai, or tabletop.

Another idea is to use paint-pens to create designs over the entire shell of your pumpkin. Use each segment of the pumpkin for a different pattern with black, blue, or metallic pens to create a cohesive collage.

Happy Halloween!

For a cool and cohesive autumnal accent that will enhance your South Florida style, try some of these unique treatments for the conventional pumpkin. This traditional symbol of the season gets a contemporary, coastal-inspired makeover with these fun and easy ideas. Furthermore, these beachy accents will bring a bit of fall flavor to your home décor, without clashing or conflicting with your current schemes and design themes.
