I had the pleasure of attending one of 3 open houses at P. Allen Smith’s Moss Mountain Farm on Friday. This was my second visit to Moss Mountain and I have to say it is one of my favorite places on earth.
The views are amazing, the gardens are gorgeous, and the house is exquisite. And with the addition of Allen and his team’s holiday decor, Moss Mountain Farm was looking extra special for this time of year.
Since I ironically used citrus fruits and colors in my own decor this year, I was of course, fond of Allen’s citrus-inspired decor for the Farm.
The Christmas tree, hand selected by Allen from a farm in Oregon was brought to Moss Mountain in it’s natural state with no pruning or shaping. And I have to say, it is one of the prettiest live Christmas trees that I have ever seen. With lot’s of room between the branches to hang ornaments, it’s Allen’s version of the “Charlie Brown Christmas Tree” full of charm and character.
Allen’s new line of Holiday product could be seen all around the farm including the dining table. I will definitely be ordering some of Allen’s designs for my home.
Festive and colorful decor, mostly straight from nature, could be found at every turn at Moss Mountain.
And even this classic bust from the Master Bath got in on the Holiday action.
The famous swans from the Lenox Hill Gala made an appearance in the library this Christmas.
I’d say no detail went unattended to this Holiday season on Moss Mountain. So, Whether Christmas or anytime of year, if you get the chance to visit Allen’s farm. It’s a must-see!
And stay tuned for more great things from Allen coming soon, including his new cookbook that hits the market next week! And in honor of the release, I am excited to say I am giving away an autographed copy right here on the blog. So to enter to win Allen’s hot off the presses cookbook full of delicious farm to table recipes, leave a comment here before midnight on Monday telling me what you love best about Moss Mountain’s holiday decor. I will choose a winner next Tuesday, December 28th.
A special thanks to Allen and his team including Ward, Mimi, Laura, Chip, Suzanne and the rest of the crew for inviting me out to be a part of their Holiday Celebration!! The lunch (straight out the new cookbook) was delicious and your hospitality as warm and welcoming as ever.
Cheers to you all and I look forward to seeing you on the farm again in the New Year!
