Blessings of the holiday season have come to Monmouth Plantation in TWO lovely publications this year! As we wrote in a previous note to you, Victoria Magazine has featured Monmouth in a sumptuous spread covering six pages of Christmas photographs and holiday verse. We encourage you to pick up a copy before they are no longer available.
Now, the most recent Christmas 2007 publication to include Monmouth is a hard-cover book CHRISTMAS IN AMERICA: A Photographic Celebration of the Holiday Season by Peter Guttman. This beautiful coffee table edition would be a lovely gift for the holiday season and its photographs cover the decorations of the holiday season. Monmouth Plantation has a full page feature, highlighting huge oak trees gracing the lawn in Christmas finery of garland and lights. Guttman writes: "A jasmine scented dusk descends softly on romantic Monmouth Plantation, strung in subtle Christmas finery. Mint juleps are sipped within the...1818 mansion that graces...(the) decidedly antebellum environs." A review from Time Magazine said: "Guttman's photographs capture the spirit of a place".
The Christmas spirit is embodied within the mansion along with the beautiful twenty six acre gardens at Monmouth.
