The South may not be the only region that goes overboard for Christmas, but we like to believe we do it with inimitable style.
It starts with the Christmas tree—the universal centerpiece for our holidays. It spreads out from there to the swag on the mantel, the wreaths on the doors, the Christmas trimmings with which we embellish our homes. Southern style flows through the parties and offers menus for every kind of Christmas gathering, from a casual cocktail supper to a Christmas Eve feast.
Part of the charm is where you live. When you live in Florida, you make sand angels at the beach and string your Boston Whaler with Christmas lights. Or you live farther north, where the snow sticks to the holly like buttercream frosting. In the end, Christmas is all about inspiration. Here, you’ll find everything you need to make yours full of tradition and Southern charm.
