Biltmore’s 2022 Christmas Décor by the Numbers

Our Team at Work 11/14/22

Written By Amy Dangelico

Christmas décor at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC, is nothing short of magical. From America’s Largest Home® to Antler Hill Village, our Winery, and beyond, our incredibly talented Floral team members somehow manage to outdo themselves year after year. In honor of the national celebration of landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted’s 200th birthday, the team selected “Winter Landscapes” for this year’s Christmas décor theme. 

Let’s take a look at just how much Christmas décor it takes to bedeck George Vanderbilt’s 8,000-acre estate.

Did you know that many of the poinsettias and other holiday blooms used in our Christmas décor are grown on the estate?

Isn’t there a fireplace mantle by Albrecht Durur in the m mansion? I didn’t see it on the tour.

Thank you for your question, Julie! The Music Room on the first floor features “The Triumphal Arch of Emperor Maximilian” by Albrecht Dürer. This large multi-part wood block print hangs above the fireplace mantel, which is carved with Dürer’s initials and life dates.
