Who doesn’t love the holiday season? For the first time all year, the New Orleans air is cold and crisp and you can finally move your coat to the front of the closet. The scents of spruce and cinnamon linger, and the ringing of jingle bells echo faintly among the sound of children’s laughter. With trees trimmed and menorahs lit, the whole city seems to sparkle.
No matter what you celebrate—Christmas, Hanukkah or simply the spirit of the season—celebrate in style. Whether you prefer whimsical, traditional, spiritual or dazzling décor, make your home look magical and memorable this holiday season.
