Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Custom House Maritime Museum Holiday House Tour in Newburyport, MA. Let me give a huge congratulatory shout out to fabulous tour co-chair Kristen H., who not only accomplished an amazingly successful event but also graciously hosted a group of fellow members from the Junior League of Boston for the tour. Way to go, Kristen! Thanks again for a wonderful day.
Here are a few of my favorite scenes from the lovely homes and holiday decor.
The Custom House is ready for the holidays.
In addition to the tree, there was a silent auction of wreaths in conjunction with the tour.
The center wreath is made from a portion of a ship's mast.
My personal favorites included the white felt wreath and the pink bauble wreath.
Next stop: the parade of homes! These photos are just a sampling of the many sights both in the tour homes and in the surrounding neighborhoods.
I was very happy to spy some Fiesta in one home.
Who would have thought of rope as a tree skirt and garland?
Remember to take a break for cider and doughnuts!
Look in the yards and parking lots as well~
Of course there were tablescapes, too!
What a great use for all of those bronzed baby shoes!
We found our Christmas tree on the drive home, so I'll have my holiday decor to share soon.
