Come Enjoy Brandon Service League’s 19th Annual Holiday Home Tour
It’s time to deck the halls and get ready for the upcoming holiday season. If you need inspiration on decorating your home, then you should attend the 19th Annual GFWC Brandon Service League Holiday Home Tour on Saturday, December 3, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The tour will feature four exquisitely decorated locations in the greater Brandon area.
According to Melinda White, second vice president in charge of fundraising for GFWC Brandon Service League, “Going on the home tour is a fun way to get into the holiday spirit. I know that I always get good decorating tips from the magnificently decorated homes and locations on the tour.”
This year, attendees will visit four locations, including the Walden home in FishHawk Trails, the Page home in Creekside in Riverview, the Koren home in Hickory Creek in Brandon and the Ackermans at their beautiful Bed and Breakfast, Casa Lantana in Brandon.
Tickets to the Holiday Home Tour are $15 and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis as only 600 tickets were printed. Tickets can be purchased from any league member or at The Green Boutique, located at 1031 Bloomingdale Ave. in Valrico; The Law Offices of B. Lee Elam, located at 101 E. Lumsden Rd. in Brandon; Divine Designs Salon & Spa, located at 1606 Oakfield Dr. in Brandon; and Greg’s Hallmark, located at 863 E. Bloomingdale Ave. in Brandon.
In addition to viewing the beautifully decorated homes, attendees will have an opportunity to purchase homemade holiday goodies. Also new this year, attendees will enjoy refreshments at one of the homes on the tour. Attendees will also be offered opportunities to win several fabulous holiday baskets.
