A gracious Savannah Christmas

A gracious Southern Yuletime, beguiled by Savannah charms.
Step into Christmas, step into history with the 40th Annual Victorian Tea, Saturday December 10th hosted by the Downtown Garden Club of Savannah and the Holiday Tour of Homes.
This season’s gracious venue is a restored 1855 mansion —
the McMahon-Barie House in historic downtown Savannah.
If in town, pencil in this holiday treat on your menu. 
The Downtown Savannah Garden Club has hosted this annual holiday event since 1971 as a fundraiser to beautify downtown Savannah.
This handsome structure is arguably one of the best examples of the architectural transition in Savannah from the mid-eighteen hundreds featuring the Regency style, favored by architect John Jay, and Greek Revival trends.  Its form is classically Georgian, with a full front gable combined with a classic  open staircase.
Renovations in 1927 and 1995, and the addition of a back deck in 2002, have kept the house up to date without compromising its historic character. 
Also enjoy the Annual Holiday Tour of Homes — a community project of the  Savannah Downtown Neighbor Association.
Two Tours are scheduled in conjunction with the Annual Victorian Tea.  The  Sunday edition features a tour of  classic romantic Inns. Top off this festive weekend with a special live Holiday Show at the historic Savannah Theater with their production of  “A Christmas Tradition!”…all the sparkle of the Season.
Tickets available online.
Don’t forget to visit the City Market Holiday Open House. Delight in the beauty of the season with its holiday lighting and over 500 luminaria in the courtyard. Dazzling. 
Here’s to the Holiday menu…fun and frolic…entertainment and elegance.
If it’s on the menu…the Menu Shoppe has it covered.
