Each year the Homes for the Holidays Tour brings together local designers and decorators, community volunteers, and retailers to decorate five beautiful homes graciously loaned to us by local homeowners for this annual fundraiser. The decorated homes are opened to the public with the purchase of a ticket, giving tour participants a dose of holiday inspiration, and the opportunity to bring decor ideas to life in their own homes.
Not only does the event spark the magic of the holiday spirit for our more than 1500 attendees, it carries that spirit on throughout the year as all proceeds from this year’s event will continue to support the Junior League of Edmonton as we direct our focus on girls’ self-esteem and mental health and services supported by the Junior League of Edmonton.
