It will be hosted by Mary Jones of Intu Tea [the restaurant's tea purveyor]. The event will include live holiday music, a very special Christmas menu, special guests, and presents.

Seating is limited, so don't delay. Any local readers who attend, please make yourself known to me.

As promised in my last post, a tour of the mansion to see the Christmas decorations in several of the rooms [I didn't go up to the third floor for pictures]. It's definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas at The Whitney!

~ Reception Room Mantel and Christmas Tree ~
~ Drawing Room Mantel and Christmas Tree ~
~ Formal Dining Room Mantel and Christmas Tree ~
~ Library Mantel and Christmas Tree ~
~ The Study Mantel and Christmas Tree ~
The music room wasn't decorated yet, so we'll ascend the Grand Staircase to the second floor. Those are the 16 steps [plus 10 more next to them] that I climb multiple times every time I go to work. Love the exercise! ;-)
~ Mantel in Mr. Whitney's Bedroom and Christmas Tree ~
~ Mantel in Mrs. Whitney's Bedroom and Christmas Tree ~
~ Mantel in Mrs. Whitney's Sitting Room and Christmas Tree ~
Mantel in daughter's bedroom - either Flora Ann's or Katherine's, we don't know which, and Christmas Tree.
As with anything, the decorations are much prettier in person, but for readers who can't visit the Whitney a photo tour is the next best thing.
