Holiday House Tour

Here’s something to put you in the spirit: the Reeves-Reed Arboretum Annual Holiday House Tour. The tour will include seven elegant homes in Summit and Short Hills, all decked out for the holidays, ranging from contemporary homes to stylish Tudors, and including the mansion at Greenwood Gardens and the historic Wisner House on the Arboretum grounds.

Tickets: $35 for RRA members ($40 for non members). There’s also a special package that includes an elegant buffet luncheon at the beautiful Beacon Hill Club is $70. For ticket-bearers at the $250 level, the day includes a pair of tickets, the luncheon, and a jitney ride that leaves from the Grand Summit and takes participants to each home on the tour.

Holiday Shopping
Do a little holiday shopping too. Wisner House will once again host the annual Holiday Boutique, open on the day of the tour from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Shop for handmade holiday gifts made by area artists and craftsmen.

Visit with Santa
The Holiday Boutique will continue on Saturday, Dec. 9 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Come for cookies and cocoa with Santa and have your picture taken while you tell him if you’ve been naughty or nice ($5 per child; accompanying adults, complementary).

Holiday Concert
And as an added treat, a special holiday concert, featuring a return engagement of the award-winning Asylum Quartet, will take place on Saturday evening, December 9 at 7:00 p.m. performing a unique arrangement of The Nutcracker Suite for saxophones, as well as other beloved holiday fare. Concertgoers will also be invited to enjoy latkes and vodka at intermission to help keep the spirits festive. Tickets for the concert are $25. Admission is free to RRA members.
