The Lee Entrance Hall at Blair House.
The orange and green palette of the Lee Entrance Hall is carried over to the garland on the stairway banister.
A traditional cedar garland is given an update with persimmons and oranges embellished with cloves.
Table settings were inspired by the Blair House Chinese export porcelain and blue-and-white needlepoint chair seats.
Instead of a floral centerpiece, Dixon filled a large bowl with art glass ornaments nestled in magnolia leaves.
Official Blair House china.
Victorian beadwork and antique ornaments adorn a small tree.
An overscale wreath is dotted with edible treats--apples, lemons, and nuts--as well as Hypericum berries and osage oranges.
