He had this weekend off and we decided to take advantage of only being 3 hours away from Nashville. Living close to fun places like Nashville is a huge reason we wanted to live in Birmingham. We visited Nashville last Christmas (post here and here) and were craving a visit back. On the way home, we made a stop at Cheekwood Estates and Gardens. I had seen pictures of the cute pumpkin house display on Instagram, so I had to get my fall pumpkin fix.

The property also features a stunning estate, formerly the residence of Nashville’s Cheek family, founders of Maxwell House Coffee and Tea. The house is set up as a museum of how the family left the home and also features an art gallery. Behind the mansion is a woodland trail with numerous sculptures spread throughout the forest.

Although admission is $20, unlike Birmingham’s Botanical Gardens free admission, I felt like there was enough to do that you get your money’s worth. If we lived in town we would definitely become members. I hear they also have a cute Christmas display.

I loved it so much I wore it on Saturday and then again on Sunday to the botanical gardens. I’m loving this color and suede right now.

Stay tuned, I will be sharing more about our Nashville visit on Thursday.

    That little pumpkin house is so cute! I can’t imagine how much time it took to put together and find all the right sized pumpkins.
