As the Christmas spirit takes hold, it’s time to deck the halls of our homes with brilliant baubles, swags of greenery, and sprightly florals—all in anticipation of gathering with loved ones. Our latest special issue brims with inspiration for dressing mantels and tabletops for Yuletide entertaining. An Atlanta abode takes cues from the Colonial style of Williamsburg, Virginia, as gingerbread houses and nutcrackers parade amid settings of festive china and other seasonal finery. Plan a jazzy Christmas Eve soirée complete with a hearty spread and a bubbly sipper; enjoy hot cocoa and conversation with a few close friends. Creative embellishments top off beautifully wrapped gifts, nestled under radiant trees and poised alongside extravagant bouquets. From our Southern Lady family to yours, we wish you the happiest of holidays!
