The elves at The Empress of Little Rock have been working so hard to get each and every ornament and wreath in place for the Christmas season. We have trimmed every tree (all 10!) and tied each bow to bring our guests the most exquisite display of holiday decor in Little Rock.
Each Piece Unique
Much care has been taken to preserve the historic integrity of The Empress at Christmas. Each of our unique pieces tell a story of long forgotten traditions. It is a place of live boughs of greens and handmade ornaments and where tiny candles still light the tree. A white wire tree filled with Victorian mementos sits atop our square Steinway in the Ladies’ Parlor. During our ‘Downton Abbey’ New Year’s Eve Wine and Dinner Dance this room is filled with the sounds of live musicians, the clank of wine glasses and the rushing of ball gowns as they waltz away the evening!
In addition to our trees, we have a beautiful Nativity scene, two handmade kissing balls, our authentic 1800’s wooden sleigh, and countless other wonders for the eye. Each mantle is decked in greenery and hung with stockings. It is the “most wonderful time of the year”!
