We are in the full swing of summer, it is hot and we are counting down the days here until we’re at the beach! I decided to bring a little bit of the ocean to us with this easy Coastal Tray Decor. Scroll down to see my Summer on a Tray Coastal Tray Decor and other summer decor ideas from my friends.

Decorating with trays is one of my favorite ways to switch up the decor in my home. Sometimes you might also hear it referred to it as a vignette. Today I’m teaming up with 13 other bloggers to bring you some inspiration for creating your own summer on a tray. And a big thank you to Katherine from Katherine’s Corner for putting this together and inviting me!

To make your Summer on a Tray Coastal Tray Decor:

1.) Start by choosing a theme or a vibe that you want to go for. I chose to do a coastal, beachy theme since I am craving the sand and shells. Then gather all your items. I’m a big believer in “shopping your home” first. Go around your home collecting any items you may have that you can use. I have a few different trays in my collection that I like to use. I will link them at the end of this post.

2.) I filled a large glass canister with some beach sand then added a candle. Then I topped the sand with some sea glass to add a pop of color.

3.) I knew I wanted to display some seashells that we’ve collected so I grouped them in a little wooden tray that I had.

4.) I always subscribe to the notion of adding some greenery whether it be real or faux. I had this little faux palm and placed it in this mercury glass vase. I love how the silver pops and complements the cool blues and greens.

I think it adds just the right amount of beachy coastal decor!

If you visit the beach this summer, make sure to bring home some sand and shells so you can a similar vignette and remember your trip!

If you’re looking for a cute way to decorate your front door for the summer, this DIY Patriotic Door Basket is so simple and classic.  I like to switch up from front door decor from time to time and change from my wreath to a door basket. The thing I like about the door basket, is that you can switch out your flowers as the seasons change. (For more door basket ideas, click here to see this spring and Easter door basket).

Patriotic Door Basket Decor

Start by filling your basket with a filler. I like to use either plastic or paper bags that I have on hand.

Add your faux flowers. I used blue hydrangeas, some white smaller flowers and a few eucalyptus stems to add some greenery.

Stand your basket up or hang on door to add the flags so you can get a better idea of where they look best.

Hang using an over the door hook or a magnetic door hook.
