Hello once again! I hope your Thanksgiving celebrations were meaningful, and that you are settling in for a warm, cozy and joyful continuation of the holidays. I love Christmas time in the South and have many fond memories of warm fires, over-sized meals and of decorating the tree with family to the band Alabama's Christmas album (which I humbly suggest to you as the best holiday album ever!).
So, as I prepared to celebrate the first Christmas in my new house a couple of years ago, I couldn't wait to get things decorated. I envisioned a simple, organic theme, inspired by the garden and Mother Nature, that would be both elegant and outdoorsy at the same time. As if on cue, it began to snow just as the work was ending and resulted in some pretty good photo opportunities that I want to share with you. I hope they will inspire you to live outside the box this holiday season!
*****A Special Thanks to my good friend and decorating genius, Christopher Todd, for helping execute my vision! To learn more about Christopher's incredible talent, click here.
