The 18th Biennial Tree Festival opens at Lounsbury House with a champagne preview party on Thursday, Nov. 16, before opening to the public on Nov. 17. The festival benefits the preservation and operation of historic Lounsbury House and features the Holiday Boutique, a carefully curated selection of unique gifts and holiday décor.
The Lounsbury House Women’s Committee invited seasoned professional and talented amateur designers from Fairfield County, Westchester County, and beyond to decorate trees. Each designer was provided with a tree ranging from four to six-and-a-half feet in height, but given carte blanche to trim their tree. A few designers opted to provide their own tree. Trees will wind through the rooms, hallways and grand staircase at Lounsbury House, transforming the landmark building into an elegant winter wonderland.
