It’s time to deck the halls with boughs of holly. If you are looking for holiday inspiration, then take a tour of four stunning homes at the 20th Annual GFWC Brandon Service League Holiday Home Tour on Saturday, December 1 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

“For our 20th year, Brandon Service League will feature four beautifully decorated homes including the Koren family home located in Hickory Creek which was a part of our 2011 tour,” said Bradlee Swanson, Membership Chair.

“In addition to the Koren home, we have a lovely two-story Victorian owned by the Hovan family (owners of the White Rabbit Antique store). In River Hills, the Maguire family has a lovely home on the 18th green. Over in FishHawk Trails, the DeCort home features murals in several of the rooms as well as an outdoor fire pit,” added Swanson.

Tickets to the Holiday Home Tour are $15 and are available on first-come, first-serve basis. Tickets can be purchased from any Brandon Service League member or at the Green Boutique, 1031 E. Bloomingdale Ave. in Valrico; The Law Offices of B. Lee Elam, 101 E. Lumsden Rd. in Brandon; Sumatra Bistro Cafe and Bakery, 1602 Oakfield Dr. in Brandon; and Greg’s Hallmark, 863 E.

This year’s tour will include a gourmet bake sale, several opportunity baskets and refreshments.
