What Are You Thankful For?

Every year at this time I'm reminded what a fun year it's been.  Fall always brings such excitement to Houmas House with the busy wedding season and the beginning of holiday planning.
I'm grateful to all who have visited this historic estate, stayed in our Inn and for all the guests who came to see me.  
The Houmas House staff has been busy getting ready for all the upcoming holiday dinners, parties and events that will take place soon.  And the gardeners are steadily working to put in the Winter gardens across 38 acres!  In just a few weeks time they will plant 70,000 new flowers and plants to blanket the gardens with bright colors to last all winter.
And the most exciting event starts the day before Thanksgiving when the mansion and garden Christmas decorations start going up.  Twinkle lights and shiny ornaments will accessorize the entire property until January.
All of this wouldn't be possible without the visits from you.  Thank you to all who have visited.  And thank you for sharing your pictures and stories with the world.    
I hope to see you again soon!

Much Love,
Princess Maggie
