It’s time to roll out the red carpet – Ruthmere’s 2021 Christmas Season, Hollywood Holiday, is making its debut!
This year’s theme for Ruthmere’s famous Christmas décor is all about the movies. Visit Ruthmere between November 27th - December 30th to see the house decked out with designs from your favorite Christmas films! Each room will feature a different movie to be designed by either a Ruthmere staff member, volunteer, or local designer.
VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE - as with our 2019 "Christmas by Design" Holiday Tours, tour visitors will have a chance to vote for their favorite room. Each designer has chosen a local charity to receive a prize check of $1000 if their room is the winner!
When you come to take a tour and cast your vote, make sure to get a campus pass to see the Havilah Beardsley House, which will also be decorated in a Victorian Christmas style.
