Event and interior designer Rebecca Gardener is hosting a holiday pop-up at Courtland  & Co., an interior and linens shop in Savannah, online and in store through December 23. Gardner has a knack for romantic whimsy (see the camellia-inspired table setting she created for Flower’s January-February 2018 issue). Featured pop-up items include vintage stemware, tabletop and home decor in festive matching chintz, and charming candles shaped like fir trees, decorated as decadent cakes, or swirled with candy cane stripes. Visit to see the collection.
