In Genia’s family room, ordinary items receive special holiday accents. Even a simple clamshell feels festive when filled with shiny gold and silver ornaments and a large sprig of magnolia. Genia replaces sprigs every two to three weeks to keep her decorations fresh.
Southern Icon: Magnolia Leaves
Take clippings from your own trees, or purchase a few from a nursery to layer throughout garlands, centerpieces, wreaths, and more. Magnolia leaves add a Southern touch and give holiday greenery a full, fresh look.
