The theme this year at Longwood Gardens for Christmas is Gingerbread.
I believe they have been making it for months to prepare. In every room and on every tree you'll find a little gingerbread man, leaf or flower.
The main display was the Pierce DuPont House and conservatory recreated in gingerbread. It was really amazing to see. There were also larger than life gingerbread trees and a huge rotating Christmas tree covered in gingerbread garlands and whimsical, candy colored ornaments. You can see they filled the shelves with enormous jars of candy to complete the fantasy.
In the kitchen of the Pierce DuPont House.
I love the metal tree frame with the cookies hanging from it.
This large vine wreath was hanging from the skylight with cookies dangling down.
A little gingerbread leaf is tucked in a tree.
