“I’ll be home for Christmas…” What a heartwarming line that is! In this issue, we celebrate the comforts of home and hearth, starting with the gorgeous Christmas morning scene on our cover and continuing with ample inspiration for holiday style that spans flower arrangements, tablescapes, and a spectrum of trimmings! We’ve packed these pages with helpful tips for blending everyday décor with your seasonal ornamentation. Experience festivities around the South, and journey with us to Charlottesville, Virginia, for historic revelry; Biloxi, Mississippi, for a maritime parade; and Rowan County, North Carolina, for a farm full of poinsettias. But as the holidays call us home, welcome those near and dear to your table with merry fare. You’ll love our spread for a robust Christmas Eve meal, as well as a post-caroling party lineup of tasty treats and a roundup of steamy sippers to relish by the fire. May the blessed season fill you with joy and peace.
