Trees of Christmas at Merrehope

002
"Merrehope", is Meridian's beautiful antebellum home. Every year, it hosts "The Trees of Christmas"

012
I toured it today and wanted to show you some pictures of it. This is the front parlor.

I love the colors they used in here.

007
Decorating in DR was done by a local decorating shop.

This was my favorite room. When a wedding is held here, the bride uses this room to dress, etc.

021
This year's theme was Movies and Broadway Musicals. Each tree is dedicated to one movie. This tree's movie was "Legally Blonde" It's pink because that was El's favorite color.



022
They did the whole room with El's stuff. See her glasses and computer?


028
Here's here "Harvard" banner and BIG pink rollers! :)

031
This tree was "Yankee Doodle Dandy" Ornaments are made by local students.

039
This room and tree was from "The Secret Garden" It was really pretty.

Love that sunny bay window.


I hope you enjoyed the tour. I'm joining Beverly for "Pink Saturday" today. Thanks for stopping by.

 Also showing my "Home for the Holidays" so this is the kitchen  and table for this year.

 The centerpiece is mostly thrift store finds from this year.
(Oops! I forgot to take off the $1.00 sign from the Santa plate :)

I wanted to add a tree to the sunroom this year. Old red quilt pillows are a recent, wonderful find, and they were a great price, too.

I SINCERELY HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS AND GOOD NEW YEAR

The mansion is gorgeous! I think I'd be more comfy in your home though. It's right up my alley. Love your sunroom and breakfast room. Happy Christmas to you!

I am so glad you posted the photos from Merrehope-I had planned to go and time just got away from me. I hate I missed it, but your photos are so good I don't feel quiete as bad. Your sunroom and kitchen are so bright and cheery-great for these dull winter days.
