After moving to Sarasota, you have just submerged yourself into a world of beaches, sun, and tropical lifestyle. Let these factors be embraced throughout the holiday season! One of the most popular past times of Sarasota locals is collecting shells! All My Sons Moving & Storage states that “Shelling” is not only a pastime, it is a way to create affordable decorations and gifts. This is a perfect way to embrace your new city, as well as the season. Spread some sunny love to your friends and family with these seashell holiday decorating ideas.

Ornaments – Shells make perfect ornaments. Get creative! Paint a shell and add some glitter. Add your family’s names and new location to send out as gifts. Hot glue gun the seashells together to create snowmen, angels, and more seasonal characters. Add a hook and some holiday ribbon and you have an affordable gift for loved ones. You can also create these for your own tree. Spend the month before Christmas shelling! Try to decorate ornaments to fill your whole tree.

Wreaths – Decorate a wreath with seashell accents to create the perfect dynamic of holiday inspiration as well as a tropical vibe. If you are leaning towards a more tropical influence, just create a wreath entirely of shells!

Cards – Another one of our great holiday ideas is to create custom cards. Add a personally picked shell and make them unique to every person you sent them to! Get creative when you make your cards.

Pull in other beachy elements – You are bound to find sea glass and drift wood on the Sarasota Beaches. Bring these elements into your decorations. Use drift wood and shells to create a Christmas tree. Add sea glass to your ornaments or other decorations.

Adding a tropical feel to your holiday ideas and decorations will help you feel at home after moving to Sarasota. This beautiful new city you reside in is worth embracing!

Do you want to know the best part about moving to Sarasota? The fact that you’re going to make it just in time to enjoy your first Sarasota Labor Day Regatta!

The Sarasota Sailing Squadron (SSS) will host the 70th Annual Labor Day Regatta from September 2nd-4th. Considering the fact that this event draws in almost 1,000 visitors and 300 competitors ranging from ages eight to 80, you could say that you picked the perfect time to be moving to Sarasota.

Activities during the 70th Annual Sarasota Labor Regatta include five separate race courses, barbecue, live music, refreshments, and an awards ceremony. You don’t have to be a sailing aficionado in order to take part in the action; there will be sailing classes held throughout the event, along with members of the SSS roaming around the event who will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

The SSS is considered a staple in Sarasota’s history, and prides itself on being “The World’s Greatest Sailing Club.” In total, the club has over 800 volunteer members. Chances are that once you finish moving to Sarasota, you’ll discover that more than one SSS member lives in your new neighborhood.

If you have kids, then look into the Sarasota Youth Sailing (SYS). This club encourages the sport of sailing, promotes the science of seamanship and marine ecology, fosters good sportsmanship, and helps children compete locally, regionally, and nationally.

With the announcement of this new Sarasota restaurant, there’s one more thing to get excited about when moving to Sarasota.

Destined to be the new hangout in town for Southern Food, Buttermilk Handcrafted Food is set to open by the end of September. This Sarasota restaurant prides itself on the four pillars of biscuits, grits, toast, and treats, the menu plans to have items such as biscuit sandwiches made with fluffy eggs, bacon, wilted dandelion greens.

This Sarasota restaurant has much more than just breakfast; the treats portion of their business will make you wished you had finished moving to Sarasota much sooner. Their selection of sweets includes oatmeal and pecan pies, sweet biscuits, and buttermilk and salted chocolate chip cookies. The owner shared, Jamie Otto, shared that “Our menu’s going to be small, but everything we’re putting out I am excited about.”

Once you finally try this Sarasota restaurant, you won’t want to leave. They are planning to offer Wi-Fi and charging stations so people will want to go to Buttermilk Handcrafted Food for more than just the food, but as a place to study, work, and hang out with friends. This will also be a great place to check out if your Wi-Fi will not be set up until after you finish moving to Sarasota.

After moving to Sarasota, you and your family may be tired or annoyed with each other from the moving process. If you did not use full-service Sarasota movers to make your move stress-free, then check out these tips on how to bond with your family after moving to Sarasota.

Gum Art: This activity is creative and quirky at the same time. Everyone chews a piece of gum, and then uses a toothpick to sculpt the chewed gum into a masterpiece. There should be various awards for every superlative, such as “most gooey,” or “most unusual.”

 Human Knot: This game is a great way to bond with your family, everyone forms a circle and holds hands with someone who is not standing next to them. Then, all participants must bend, twist, and maneuver to untangle the knot. To add an extra challenge, you can blindfold family members. This game is ideal for a larger group.

Cereal Box City: After moving to Sarasota, grab a bunch of empty cereal boxes, as well as art supplies. You can use tape, glue, paint, and scissors to work together and create a large cereal box city. Use recycled items, toy cars, and dolls to make it appear more realistic.

Jelly Bean Hunt: Spread a bag of jelly beans throughout the backyard. You can make them as hidden as possible. Then, assign each member a specific color, and urge each participant to collect as many jelly beans as possible. You can divide into teams if the group is large enough. Whoever collects the most jelly beans, wins. This is a personal favorite game of ours at All My Sons.

If you are moving to Sarasota and are concerned about making friends, then you aren’t the first person to worry about?this. Moving to a new city is a scary feat, and it is particularly challenging if you lean towards the introverted side. At All My Sons, we wish to help you make your move to Sarasota the very best it can be. Here are our suggestions.

Meet people through work. Put yourself out there at your job. Of course, you should make sure that you are on task and are productive, especially when you first move. However, when you are on your lunch break, you should put your best foot forward and ask a coworker out to lunch. You never know who will be your next closest friend, so give everyone a fair and equal chance.


Have a positive attitude. It is all about the energy you put forth with others. If you give off an inviting, open-hearted vibe, then people will naturally gravitate towards you. At All My Sons Moving & Storage Sarasota, we believe you should keep an open mind and be accepting of whatever turn of events occurs. Instead of resisting, go with the flow and you will see how the “flow” can bring you to an even better situation than you once planned.


Go out into the city alone. Don’t let your lack of friends in your initial period of moving to Sarasota stop you from going out and exploring. Do things because you enjoy them, regardless of if you?have company or not. Make yourself feel comfortable on your own, and making friends will naturally occur with time. Think about it: you won’t meet new people by staying cooped up in your house or apartment.
