Wow -- there's a real chill in the air and I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week! And while I'm looking forward to a generous slice of pumpkin pie, it also means that another of my favorite Bedford traditions is right around the corner -- the annual holiday house tour! And while I certainly see the inside of many of the homes in this area, it's still a special treat to visit them all decorated in their holiday finest. And I must admit, I often pick up an idea or two for my own home!
So I'm giving you plenty of notice to save the date for the Suzanne & Company Holiday House Tour, Sunday, Dec 9 from 1 to 4pm. Get into the holiday spirit and jingle all the way while visiting a variety of delightfully decorated homes in Bedford. The tour includes one of my favorites -- the former Fitch Tavern (more about the unique history of this home in a future post!), and a number of other homes highlighting the heritage and architectural variety in Bedford. As you're touring, be on the lookout for an identical holiday item that will be placed in each home -- the first three people to correctly identify it win tickets to next year's house tour.
In the course of visiting the homes, guests are invited between 1:30 and 4:30pm to gather at the Congregational Church on Great Road for refreshments and holiday cheer, including the annual wreath raffle and the opportunity to shop for those special people on your gift list at the holiday bazaar.
Tickets are $20 in advance ($15 for seniors, $8 for children), and $25 day of the event -- available at the New England Nursery at 216 Concord Road, Great Road Gallery & Framing at 363 Great Road, and online at bedfordchamber.org. Proceeds support the activities of the Chamber of Commerce, including scholarships awarded to local students.
Hope to see you there!
