Today we’re so happy to have Amanda from Dixie Delights here to share her beautiful home with you all. When it comes to decorating or putting on a pretty party, nobody does it better than Amanda.  We love her Southern Style!


With all the glitter, twinkling lights, ribbons and trees, there’s nothing I love more than having the halls decked for the holidays.

I lean towards loads of greenery, white lights, red bows and pheasant feathers both inside and out. Without further ado, ya’ll come on in!!

The tree in my formal living room evolves more than any other. This year I used aqua ornaments purchased on clearance after Christmas last year.

In the dining room I simply add to silvered reindeer to my table and tie little wreaths to the chair backs. The manger scene was the first Christmas decoration I ever purchased and I’ve had it for fifteen years!

We received much of the Spode Christmas Tree china as wedding gifts and I look forward to pulling it out each year! My mother has gradually added to it over the years as well.

In our family room I use more greenery, white lights, red bows and pheasant feathers. We have a tradition of choosing an ornament for each member of our family every year, and also of picking up an ornament on each family trip. Every single one on this tree has meaning to us and it is always a joy to relieve those memories as they are unpacked at Christmas!

The littles each have a tree in their bedrooms – although they both sleep in this one. They love falling asleep to the lights on the tree during the holiday season.

Since we always host family over the holidays, I love to add a few touches of greenery and a small tree to the guest suite.

We use our screened porch year round, so holiday decor is a must here as well! The tree is decorated in oyster shells and glass balls, and the little hot chocolate station is a favorite for the boys and their friends.

Even the garden gate gets a little holiday cheer.
