It was just an average Saturday morning in Alexandria, Virginia… enjoying a tour through historic George Washington’s River Farm. Please join me in admiring these gorgeous Christmas decorations in the historic Estate House.
River Farm is one of George Washington’s five farms. The historic brick mansion was built in 1757, and Washington purchased the land and property in 1760. The Estate House is currently the headquarters of the American Horticulture Society and is a sought-after wedding venue.
While the home and gardens are exquisite in their own right, the best attribute of the property is the unobstructed view of the Potomac River. Looking out this window in the picture below is a gorgeous view of the river.
I love the simplicity of this swag. All of their Christmas decorations came from the gardens, something I try to replicate in our own home.
This room had a lot of blue accents. The greenery on the mantles are stunning.
The Christmas decor has a quiet elegance to it.
I can’t even begin to paraphrase and do the history of this home and land justice. So if you are interested in learning more about the slightly bizarre and sorted history of River Farm, you can read all about it HERE.
