A Few of my Favorite Holiday Instagrams This Week #IGTravelThursday

They say Santa is watching us to see who is naughty and nice. Well, this month, I'm watching my Instagram feed to see who makes me festive. All month, we'll celebrate the season with my #IGTravelThursday Holiday feature so grab an eggnog, and let's get festive.



A decedent display of sweet macarons brings the holiday spirit to the @TheRitzCarlton in Charlotte. The culinary Christmas tree at the Ritz Carlton in Charlotte is amazing. Last year, the luxury hotel dazzled with a white chocolate tree. I visited that one in person for this Skimbaco article last year. This macaron tree looks divine.

This photo from my Skimbaco colleage, Adrienne Shubin of @TheRichLifeonaBudget just makes me feel festive. It was taken from a yacht at the Marin Yacht Club. 


The Fearrington House at @FearringtonNC, a five-star Relais and Chateaux Inn, in Pittsboro, NC is magical during the holidays. These trees line their famous barn, used for parties and wedding receptions. 


@ColonialWilliamsburg is twinkling this holiday. I spent some time at Colonial Williamsburg this summer. It's a very special place, and extremely beautiful during the holidays.  Read more about my stay at the Williamsburg Lodge and my tour of the Williamsburg Inn.  If hungry, Shield's Tavern was a delight and my dinner there made my Top 10 Southern Culinary Bites on Skimbaco Lifestyle. 


From my own Instagram account, this a favorite photo of mine from the Washington Duke Inn in Durham, North Carolina.  This photo was taken outside the Fairview Dining Room.  I attended a great event at the Inn over the weekend called, "Cookies are not just for Santa!". My children got to meet Santa, and decorate a few cookies to take home. The Inn had a wonderful beverage and dessert station for participants. The pastry chef made some great cookies, too. Remember to check your luxury hotels in your hometown for fun, family events. As I stated last week, hotels put the "merry" in Christmas.





Speaking of my post from last week, I got a little present from Four Seasons Las Vegas this week. If you recall, after last's week's "Santa Sighting", I inquired if the barista at PRESS could make us a snowman. The barista did it. Thank you, @FSLasVegas.  I really want to drink this baby in person now. It's cold outside! Is it in Vegas?

And here is a fun, little holiday Instagram video from the @FamilyAdventureProject that has me tapping my toes and waiting for Santa.
