Quiet notes of “The Christmas Waltz” seemed almost discernible along 30A, where a hint of holiday decor added festive charm to the scenery the week of Thanksgiving.

The Artists at Gulf Place tapped into their artistic holiday spirit with wreaths, lights and even a mailbox specifically for Letters to Santa. During his visit to Gulf Place Saturday, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Santa Claus will collect the letters and take note of the Christmas wishes enclosed.

A pair of giant nutcrackers watched over parked bikes at Uptown Grayton. Two brought out their red and silver bicycles to take advantage of the 60-degree temperatures and sunny skies. It seems only along 30A would bikes and Christmas décor fit in the same frame.

The Seaside Post Office was decked in silver baubles, which added just enough holiday sparkle to hint at the spectacle to come at Turn on the Town Saturday.

For the first time ever, Seaside put up another tree to compliment the 24-foot Christmas tree that traditionally graces the town’s Amphitheater. This 17-foot “mini”-version highlights the town’s iconic archway. The palm tree right beside it perfectly completed the South Walton scene.
