First I am going to South Carolina. I wonder what and where that family is now? Gordon Beall was the photographer. This photo shoot was set in Charleston's historic district. In 1997, the neighbors were close and called upon one another during the holiday season and the children, girls that is, actually wore taffeta dresses! Many parties were held. White tulips played a large part in the Christmas decorations in this particular home.
The tree was nine feet tall and was decorated with red ribbon and white tulips placed in water vials.
I love the chairs covered in black with tiny white polks dots and the couch covered in black and white stripes. The fireplace is painted a flat, matted black and tulips abound from the tables and spill over the mantel.
The kichen abounds with Christmas goodies.
Fresh fruits, wreaths and topiaries fill the kitchen with more Christmas cheer.
