December has arrived, and not only is holiday cheer decking the halls, but Alabama Gulf Seafood is also readily available to uniquely integrate a bit of the coast into this season’s most festive gatherings!
For the consummate decorator, handmade oyster shell ornaments are an easy, quick activity the whole family can enjoy, all while bringing a bit of Alabama beaches to your tree. You can also use shells to craft coastal holiday wreaths and seashell candle holders – additional ways to spread coastal holiday cheer in your home.
From decorating homes to filling tables, integrating seafood elements into holiday traditions is commonplace around the world. The most famously-known example is the Italian Feast of the Seven Fishes, in which – like the name suggests – a variety of fish and shellfish are served through a multi-course holiday meal. Other seafood dishes commonly enjoyed during the Christmas holidays include Shrimp Tacos with Mango Salsa, which matches the Christmas aesthetic with its bright, festive color mixture, as well as Christmas Eve Confetti Pasta (yes, you heard that right).
As the merriment of this year’s holiday season commences, we invite you and yours to ‘coastify’ your home with Alabama Gulf Seafood products and ingredients and bring new traditions that your whole family will cherish for years to come. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
