Southern Accents

One of my favorite things to do this time of year is drive around and look at everyone’s houses all decked out for the holidays. I try to take notes and get ideas from the elegant wreaths and garlands, but, I must admit, there are few things more fun than seeing those houses covered with lights and dancing Santas and blow-up snowmen. I’m always in awe of those people’s artistry because, honestly, getting the wreath and garland hung is about all I can manage, much less getting 100,000 blinking lights wrapped all over the place. There are no green and red blinking icicles hanging in these entrances, but we hope you like them anyway!

We are obsessed with this moss wreath. The entire entrance is so elegant — especially for people (like me) who aren’t red fans.

Birch and lily

Such an elegant use of tree lights. Love it!

Wow! Now that’s an amazing entrance.

This garland is so gorgeous. I think that goes without saying. But I can’t help but wonder if they have pine needles shedding all over the place like I do…

We love to incorporate non-traditional colors in the Christmas decor. This yellow is such a fabulous punch.

Fire hazard or no, I am definitely putting lights up my stairs this year. There’s nothing more magical than a little candlelight…
