We place these orders in May, so it's exciting to unwrap them and rediscover their beauty all over again. TAMMY CONNOR Since childhood, my Christmas season has begun when the white lights are strung and turned on, illuminating the oak tree in Birmingham's Mountain Brook Vil- lage. I am always sad when they are turned off after the New Year. 26 | N O V E M B E R / D E C E M B E R 2 0 1 8 FRESH STYLE I tastemakers I know holiday time is in full swing when I see my favorite hellebores blooming. And when my clients start frantically calling for help with last minute, preholiday party touch-ups! —MICHELLE NUSSBAUMER What signals the start of the holiday season to you ? JANE SCOTT HODGES In New Orleans, we kick off the holiday season with a drive down St. Charles Avenue to see the beautifully decorated homes and the streetcars adorned with wreaths rattling on the tracks. I have a "Christmas in July" kind of moment when we shoot the products in my holiday line, but the holidays officially arrive when I bring out the Thanksgiving platters, linens and accessories. All of the ornaments and Christmas objects are unpacked and ready for decorating by the first of December. —SUZANNE KASLER ' T I S T H E S E A S O N PHOTOS BY SIDRA MONREAL PHOTOGRAPHY/SHUTTERSTOCK (TOP CENTER), IVORA OBRAZY/ISTOCKPHOTO (TOP RIGHT), J.
