Christmas in the real South

My husband grew up in a very unique, beautiful and antebellum town called Natchitoches. It is the oldest settlement in Louisiana and home to many historic plantations, one of them owned by my inlaws. It is one of the most beautiful homes I've ever seen and not just because of the decor, but the authenticity. Surrounded by 250 year old oak trees, and adorned with copper lanterns, it is truly a step back to the old South.

Christmas Time

 The whole month of December makes me want to bake goodies, play music, light candles, snuggle with my kiddos in their pajamas, read books, light a fire, and open a bottle of red wine.  Christmas time is the best.  It is a month of magic and giving......and a month where your home gets "all dressed up"!

The grass-cloth wallpaper in this casual living room was the inspiration for this Christmas tree.
