Christmas at the Opry

A country Christmas isn't complete without a trip to the Grande Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. I love going to see the lights in the hotel atrium each year. I just went last night and wanted to share some of my favorite pictures.

The Opryland hotel is festively decorated in the indoor garden that includes high glass ceilings, waterfalls, a miniature river, bridges and plants of all kinds.

A focal point is the oversized Christmas tree decorated with large bows, balls and presents.

The architecture and lamplit paths make you almost forget that you're inside a hotel atrium.

Shops and restaurants like this beautiful building are located within the atrium.

A romantic gazebo twinkled with white lights and snowflakes.

A tree of white poinsettias...

with shiny presents underneath. So cute.

Red and white flowers decorate every inch of the atrium.

A winter wonderland of streaming lights, hot air balloons, flying teddy bears and more.

A giraffe plays a cello outside the hotel balconies.

A cafe is located on the ground floor of the atrium. I just love the strings of oversized Christmas lights that hang above the tables. Makes me think of a European sidewalk cafe.

Santa's elf overlooks a garden pond and the fish.

I love books, so I couldn't resist this ribbon wrapped bookstore with cafe tables. So cozy.

If you ever visit Nashville at Christmas, the Opry should definitely be on your list of things to do. It's a simple and sweet Christmas tradition.

Merry Christmas!
