One way to define Florida-style is anything nautical or tropical — something that perhaps reminds you of the water, your favorite beach or vacation cottage. Whether store-bought or hand-made, ornaments can be made with a variety of materials — shells, molded or brushed on sand, drift wood, nautical rope and fishing lures are examples. They can be hand-painted or left natural. You are only limited by your interests and imagination. It is that imagination that can expand the Florida-style to include just about anything — palms, oranges or favorite theme park characters.
