Tennessee Governor Residence-Holiday Decorating

Holiday Decorating one of Tennessee’s most grandest homes is the Governors Residence. The holiday color scheme included beautiful ornaments and ribbons in various shades of reds, burgundy, corals, sea foam, and bronze. Tall Frasier fir trees are decked with rows of twinkling lights and wide ribbon with berries.

The Grand Foyer welcomes guests with the traditional red and green Christmas color scheme.  Shades of red ornaments ranging from shiny, satin and jeweled adorn the stately fir tree in the foyer.  Every room in the mansion was decorated with holiday decor to coordinate with the furnishings.

It was an honor to serve as a volunteer decorator for the Governor and the First Lady of Tennesse. My self and 6 volunteer decorators decorated 14 trees in the Conservatory. " The 14,000 square-foot subterranean meeting and banquet facility built under the front lawn of the Tennessee Residence. It was completed during the Residence renovation project. “Read 20” trees decorated with ornaments provided by elementary schools throughout the state, reflecting students’ favorite books. “Patriotic” tree in honor of the brave men and women of our military, decorated by IT Creswell Magnet Middle School in Nashville. “Tennessee Symbols” trees decorated with ornaments by Nashville School of the Arts. Higher education tree decorated with ornaments from, colleges, universities, and community and technical schools throughout the state."
“THE FOYER
The marble floor in the Foyer is original to the residence and follows the style of a British manor home. It features black marble from Belgium and white marble from the state of Georgia. The centerpiece of the room is the elliptical staircase, crafted from Indiana limestone and covered with a new runner which was woven especially for the Residence.”
