Blue and White Christmas Decor | Weston Farms Magnolia

I would describe my Christmas decor as understated.  I try and incorporate everyday pieces with a few holiday decorations. No red and green for this girl. I try and make one adult purchase a year. This year I got my ginger jar ornaments and this insane garland from Weston Farms
Erin Weston, a UNC grad has a farm in Garner where she grows the prettiest magnolia I have ever seen.  Is there anything more Southern than owning a magnolia farm? Dream job.  If you are lucky enough to live in Raleigh she has set up shop at the Farmer's Market. The prices are much more reasonable than online.
I plan on trying to preserve my garland. I was told that the wreaths and garland dry beautifully. They can last a couple of holiday seasons if you take care of them.

    1. My Mom actually saw her in Southern Living and told me about her space at the Farmer's Market. I need to catch up on my magazines.

  5. I got some magnolia garlands as well. Since they are expensive, I would like to use them again. Any suggestions on how to maintain them?

  6. This looks amazing! I first read about Weston Farms in Southern Living too. If only we'd had a chance to visit the farmer's market when we were in NC last weekend... Next year, for sure!

  7. Thanks so much for the kind words! The best way to store the magnolia is in a cardboard box. Simple! It absorbs moisture and prevents mold or mildew.
