Christmas with Suzanne Kasler

Earlier this month, I featured Suzanne Kasler's gorgeous Buckhead home. While compiling the images, I stumbled upon her home decorated for Christmas, as featured in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles magazine in 2012, and I just had to share as we enter the holiday season.

Suzanne starts planning her seasonal decor in November, and in early December she sets aside two days to complete the transformation of the Regency-style home. Because she has numerous collections from which to choose, Suzanne has a different focus each year. “I start with a concept, then pick and choose from my collections—and edit,” she says, noting that there are some constants throughout. The results are festive and elegant—a true reflection of Suzanne’s personal style.

“I have a beautiful collection of ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ ornaments from Christopher Radko," said Suzanne. "I always put them on the main tree in the family room. And I like to use things from my Christmas collection for Ballard Designs. It was inspired by antique ornaments I’ve collected in muted colors, and the tree in the living room is done in those ornaments, paired with all-silver varieties. The fireplace mantel incorporates them, too; the muted colors are gorgeous there.”

Complementing the designer’s special collections throughout the house are elements in traditional red and green hues, as well as timeless Frasier fir and juniper berries.

30 Blue and White Tablescapes for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. It is a relaxing and special time to pause and give thanks with family and friends, before all of the hustle and bustle of Christmas. And here in South Florida, Thanksgiving ushers in "season"... that glorious and fleeting spell of heavenly weather we enjoy between Thanksgiving and Easter. One of my favorite color palettes is blue and white, so the combination Thanksgiving with blue and white makes me very happy.  For inspiration, I have selected 30 of my favorite tablescapes... Enjoy!

I hope you all have a very lovely and blessed Thanksgiving!
