Oh deer! The Season's here!

For many years The Memphis Garden Club has decorated the Dixon for the holiday season. There have been a lot of wonderful decorations over the years but each year seems more magical than the last. Picking a theme is never an easy task; many ideas are thrown around each year in the club’s meetings. This year’s theme stemmed from the feeling most people have after Thanksgiving, “Oh no, the holidays are here!” The Memphis Garden Club Co-Chairmen, Lysbeth Francis and Pam Martin, decided it would be fun to use the theme “Oh deer! It’s Christmas!” This was an easy subject for the club to agree on, because most had deer decorations in their Christmas stash and they thought it would entertain visitors, especially hunters and others that enjoy the sport. The room captains guided their committee members under the theme “Oh deer, the season’s here!” creating a unique personality for each room of the Dixon Residence. From the Catmur Foyer to the Dining Room in the Residence, the Dixon is masterfully decorated in a “deer-lightful” fashion. Come and enjoy all the holiday décor now through December 29th, 2014. Gallery and gardens are open Tuesdays-Saturdays 10am to 5pm and Sundays 1 pm to 5pm. The Dixon will close early at 2 pm on Christmas Eve and will be closed Christmas day. 

Thank you to The Memphis Garden Club for making the Dixon beautiful this holiday season.
