Beach theme summer mantel and vignette

I changed out my winter mantel to my summer decor (we skipped spring decor due to illness in the family) a few weeks ago. I kept some of the same things I had out for winter and just swapped out a few others. I'm using the same elements I've used for the past couple of years, just in different ways.  I also kept the succulents in place as they go well with summer and beach decor.
Here's an overview of the whole mantel and hearth.

The mantel
The large hurricane with shells and sand is back again this year, along with the lanterns and DIY shell art. This time I used the same bowl I had out for winter and changed out the fillers.

On the hearth I place some large shells on top of tall candleholders.

Here's the vignette on the sofa table. I moved the sisal rope frame back out as part of this display.

A shot of the whole shelf- I placed some more shells in a platter underneath the vignette. The plate usually stays in place and I change out the contents season to season.
The burlap candles have been on the mantel and as part of a centerpiece. They found a place with the sofa table vignette this time.
I left the tray and succulents in place and added a large seashell ball.

I'm enjoying the summer touches in my home. Thanks for visiting. You can see the other ways I've used these items HERE, HERE, and HERE.

I'm linking up to the Fun in the Sun link party and these other fun parties:
