Christmas is a time to rejoice! Join us on a journey through fairy-tale homes, festive tablesettings, and resplendent Southern repasts as we celebrate the magic and wonder of the season. In this issue, we invite you inside a handful of holiday abodes throughout the region: a gold-and-white beauty in Birmingham; a Chattanooga home laden with keepsakes from our nation’s capital; a pair of storied structures on the annual Christmas Candlelight Tour in Edenton, North Carolina. We’ve also packed our pages with plenty of ways to dress your tabletops for the season—in both merry décor and taste-tempting fare. You’ll love our lineup of seasonal menus, from an hors d’oeuvre spread fit for a holiday open house to a cozy family Christmas dinner to our annual collection of Goodies to Give. We hope this issue of Southern Lady helps make your Christmas merry and your New Year bright.
