For decades, the Henry Overholser Mansion served as the place for holiday parties and festivities. The home was adorned with decorations and the rooms were filled with merriment and yuletide cheer. This year, those days return when Preservation Oklahoma presents A Designer Holiday at the Overholser Mansion.
Local designers from Interior Gilt, Winter House Interiors, A-Line Designs, Trochta’s Flowers & Garden Center, and Calvert’s Plant Interiors have been selected to decorate rooms in the Overholser Mansion in their own unique style. The home will feature holiday trees and mantles reflecting styles from modern to traditional. Freedom Lawn Care will install holiday lights brightening the home’s exterior for neighbors and motorists. The home will be open for tours throughout the season during normal operating hours.
Of course, the holidays wouldn’t be complete without a dinner to kick off the event. For the first time in over a decade, a special preview dinner will take place in the mansion on Tuesday, November 28. The dinner will feature holiday music and a chance to meet with designers. Seating is very limited. Tickets are $150 each and all proceeds will be used towards the upkeep and maintenance of the mansion. Table sponsorships are available for $750 (4 person), $1050 (6 person), and $1350 (8 person). Tickets are available at http://www.preservationok.org/upcoming-events.html
In addition to the wonderful designers mentioned above, Preservation Oklahoma is seeking volunteers from Heritage Hills and Mesta Park to join in the festivities and decorate additional spaces. We have decorations available but would welcome more and a designer’s touch. The tentative date to decorate is Sunday, November 19.
For more information on the event or to volunteer, please contact Preservation Oklahoma at 405.525.5325 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
