When our house was on the local Christmas Homes Tour, I changed from my traditional red decor and went with chartreuse colors. I had many compliments on the color although it took me a while to decide to go with chartreuse.
I decorated my dining room table with magnolias for the summer. I used a magnolia swag, crystal candlesticks, and the Magnolia plate by Peggy Karr. The candlesticks were purchased on a recent trip to the Bagbey House in Franklin, TN. The owner, Kris Bagbey, was a former student of mine when I was teaching high school. Next I added a magnolia wreath on the inside of the front door.
