The annual “Holiday Home Tour” featured Garden District homes dressed up for the holidays and open for tour-goers to enjoy the history and architecture, accompanied by the tunes of talented New Orleans musicians. The “Holiday Home Tour Patron Party” helped fund this annual tradition. Proceeds aid the PRC in restoring, rebuilding and revitalizing New Orleans’ historic architecture and neighborhoods.
At the Patron Party, guests were in awe of the grand architecture designed by architect Peter M. Trapolin, as well as the incredible interiors by internationally acclaimed interior designer Alexa Hampton at the home of Sue Ellen and Joseph C. Canizaro. The spectacular collection of Old Master paintings, including works by Ferdinand Bol, Luca Giordano and Sandro Botticelli delighted guests, and the beautiful private chapel provided a festive tone for the holidays.
Passed hors d’oeuvres, charcuterie, shrimp and grits and sweet holiday treats were provided by Pigeon Caterers. The John Parker Jazz Trio provided musical entertainment. Delightful Christmas décor was provided by The Plant Gallery.
More than 350 guests attended the event. Patron Party Chairs were Elizabeth Bush and Adele Ralston. Kristin Van Hook Moore and Mary Martin Roth served as Tour Chairs.
