Home for the Holidays

That's my own shadow (a little creepy) as I inspect the lights from the outside of the Phelps-Hatheway House.
Last January I was asked if I would be interested in decorating the historic Phelps-Hatheway House for Christmas.  I was flattered and intimidated and.... couldn't say no! What an honor it would be to work on this amazing home rich with history in my hometown. 
Over the past year I have daydreamed, researched and daydreamed some more for what could be done inside and outside on this property.  This week, my dreams are becoming a reality as the house is decorated.

If you are in the Connecticut area, I really hope you come see the house and what I have done to decorate it this year. The deadline is fast approaching to attend the opening night and cocktail party this Friday, December 4th.  Please call 860-247-8996 x23 to reserve your spot. 

Tickets to tour the Phelps-Hatheway House and seven other private homes on historic Main Street are available with details at www.ctlandmarks.org The tours of these decorated homes are only available this Saturday, December 5th from 1-6 pm.  The Phelps-Hatheway House is also open on Sunday, December 6th from 1-4. 
Check out what The Courant had to say about it HERE!
A work in progress... see you this weekend!
Come see all six, yes, six Christmas trees and the entire first floor of the Phelps-Hatheway House decorated in a Naturally Elegant Design!
