Christmas at Biltmore

This weekend we went to Biltmore in Asheville, NC to go to their candlelight tour. It was so pretty! I LOVED all the Christmas trees. It makes me want to put up all of my decorations now. I got so many good ideas. This theme for Christmas at Biltmore this year was : the decorators would pick a painting in each room and then decorate the Christmas tree based on that painting. For example: in one room there is an awesome painting of a ship so the Christmas tree had a nautical theme. It was so awesome.

Here we are at dinner.

We had dinner at the Biltmore Inn Dining Room. I had the Frisée & Endive Salad with local goat cheese, toasted walnuts, poached apple, blush vinaigrette; Sunburst Farms Trout with blue grits, crawfish, Tasso gravy, crisp okra; and Sweet Potato Crème Brulée with Candied Bacon, Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream and Biscotti. Jeremy had the same entree but had Pan Roasted Crab Cake with saffron couscous and cioppino broth as an appetizer and he had Caramelized White Chocolate Pâté with peppermint caramel, macadamia nougatine and bittersweet chocolate ice cream for dessert. It was all amazing.

This was the only Christmas tree we could take a picture of. Unfortunately no photography in the house.

Yay Christmas Elves!

We also want to congratulate our good friends Amy and Di  and 
wish them a happy wonderful marriage!
