As a part of our 20th Anniversary celebration, we’re sharing our favorite memories from past issues. This month, we’re looking back at a few of our best-loved holiday issues.
“It was so fun to have a family friend featured in last December’s issue! Susan Harper, of El Dorado, always has an arch of beautiful magnolia leaves around her front door, which she accessorizes with red berries and classic white lights. Everyone is always anxious to see how she’ll decorate her beautiful Southern home for Christmas each year. And to top it off, her well-known goat, Julia, who Susan milks to make her famous and most delicious goat cheese, made the article!” —Laura LaRue, Senior Graphic Designer
“We observe a lot of family traditions during the holidays, and the sweet simplicity of this cover really takes me back home.” —Kelly Fraiser, Publisher
“I chose this cover because it was actually my home and my design work. It’s nice to know that it will always be a part of At Home history.” —Chip Jones, Editor in Chief
“I loved the WHOLE Home section of this issue, but what really got me was the ‘Blue Christmas’ house. It reminds me of Christmas with my grandparents. My grandmother always decorated everything in blue, and we referred to it as a ‘blue Christmas.’” —Debbie Tissue, Marketing and Distribution Coordinator
“This was my first Christmas issue with At Home, so I think it will always be special to me. I can especially relate to Mona Thompson when she said ‘…I always start with the tree…. It’s what I remember most about the holidays of my childhood. Everything about the tree is magical.’ My main tree has transformed from non-traditional blues, purples, and silvers to a nine-foot hodgepodge of memories. There are ornaments my mom passed down to me from when I was a child, and now there are sweet hand-made ornaments from my own kids. So yes, there’s definitely nothing more magical than the tree at Christmastime!” —Norma Edwards, Art Director
