In preparation for the 2020 holiday season, the First Lady asked florists and designers from across the state to submit their ideas for the inaugural ‘Christmas at the Mansion’ competition to honor those working on the frontlines of the pandemic. The response to that call was incredibly successful, which has led the First Lady and her team to make the contest a tradition.

“It is hard to believe a year has passed since we began planning our first ‘Christmas at the Mansion’ competition. After seeing the success of last year’s competition, it was clear we should make this a yearly tradition. The unique and creative ideas from florists and designers throughout Mississippi were incredible, and we cannot wait to see what this Christmas will hold,” said First Lady Elee Reeves. “Our first Christmas in the Mississippi Governor’s Mansion was made even more special by the work we got to do with Scott Reed of Petal Pushers in West Point. We look forward to finding our next ‘Christmas at the Mansion’ decorator and showcasing their work throughout the 2021 Holiday Season.”

The deadline for all submissions is August 31, 2021. Once the winner is selected, their holiday decorations for the Governor’s Mansion must be completed by December 1, 2021. All proposals must include a plan for take down after the holidays.

For those interested in featuring their talents at the Governor’s Mansion this holiday season, please contact Chief of Staff for First Lady Elee Reeves, Ann Beard at for project specifications, budget details, and more.
