I toured our Governor's mansion last week, the  decorations were all natural evergreens, magnolia leaves ,and cotton. The main foyer had a huge vase of cotton stalks and magnolia leaves, very different and really striking. The huge Christmas tree was stuffed with magnolia branches and cotton stalks as well.Sorry no picture taking allowed inside. This is the outside .
This horse stands on the grounds out front. It is named Delta Glory and was painted by a group of sixth graders in Merigold,Ms. It contains scenes of crops in Mississippi ,native wildlife a Delta juke joint and of course the famous highway 61 blues trail. This  horse is normally at the Delta Arts Alliance in Cleveland,Ms. Very talented sixth graders!

This brings back memories of touring the Old State Capitol when I was a child. It was always astonishing how beautiful the place was for Christmas!
Hope yours is MERRY! :)

I am sad you could not take pictures inside, might be the only way I could see it. Looks like a beautiful mansion. I love magnolia leaves and cotton, so pure for your part of the world. i am having a Southern low Country Christmas Dinner.Country cured ham with red eye gravey. Fried cabbage with bacon, spicey cornbread, mac and cheese and bread puddin with whisky sauce. How I do? Richard from My Old Historic House.
