In Asheville, we've begun to slide seamlessly into the Christmas season! This weekend Christmas will be in full swing at fabulous Biltmore Estate, just across town from us. America's largest privately owned home ushers in the Christmas holidays early...so we happily follow suit.
So far we have gotten out all our boxes of decorations, put up seven full-size trees on porches and decks (some are 6.5 feet while others are 9 feet tall), hung yards and yards of lighted garland on our outdoor railings. It takes at least 5 days to decorate the main floor, get out the Christmas china and light up the outdoor spaces. You can see some photos of previous year at our website, www.abbingotngreen.com in the section called "Main House" At the bottom choose the photo called "Holidays".
This year we've gone to nearly all LED lights...energy saving and very lovely lighting effect. Will keep you posted on progress with some pictures soon!
