CHARLOTTE – More than 450 vendors showcasing the latest gifts, treats and holiday décor will be at the 52nd annual Southern Christmas Show.
Guests will be able to stroll through dazzling designer rooms by Ballard Designs, hear the pleasant sound of old-fashioned carols from the LeafFilter Entertainment Stage and share their holiday wishes with Santa Claus.
The holiday shopping experience offers gift options as well as a variety of holiday ornaments, wreaths, stockings and trimmings.
With the theme of “A Woodland Christmas,” this year’s show will feature a life-sized log cabin built into the main entrance and forest-inspired decorations that will make attendees feel like they’re strolling through wintry woods while they shop. Shoppers will pass through Olde Towne, where the magic of the season comes alive with shops brimming with gifts, dolls, ornaments and decorations.
Christmas Tree Lane will deck the halls with trees from the North Carolina mountains and ideas that range from traditional to fanciful.
The show will also provide many ways to make mantels, doors and wreaths shine during this holiday season. Holiday décor competitions are sponsored by Renewal by Andersen, and guests are encouraged to visit the table Nov. 15 and 16 to cast their vote for the best decorated Christmas tree, wreath, mantle and door.
Attendees can also take in the model train exhibits at the show or check out the talented work of skilled crafters and artisans from around the country showcasing watercolors, sculptures and pottery.
