Our Team at Work

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.

This year’s theme of “Winter Wonderland” can be spotted in even the tiniest details of our Christmas décor.


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