The Woman’s Club to host Holiday Tour of Homes


The Woman’s Club of Gadsden’s 48th annual Holiday Tour of Homes is scheduled for 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.  December 7.

Several homes across Etowah County are on this year’s tour, which reaches from Hokes Bluff to Country Club to downtown Gadsden. The tour also includes stops at the Gadsden Museum of Art, the Gunn Ballenger House and the Woman’s Club.

An extra special feature this year is the Woman’s Club as a decorator’s show house.  Several local professional decorators have selected rooms to decorate. They will turn the Woman’s Club at 862 Chestnut Street into a work of art. The featured decorators each have areas within the Woman’s Club where they will show their own unique decorating styles.

The decorator’s include:

Amber’s Interior Design – Upstairs foyer and boardroom.

BLDesigns – East parlor, dining room and kitchen.

Blooms on Broad – Foyer, downstairs powder room and staircase.

Emily Bade – West parlor and music room.

Joy’s Flowers & Marketplace – Outside of home and gazebo.

Kinzie Edgeworth – Groom’s room, bath and study.

Recovery Room Upholstery – Bride’s room and bath.

Vintage Hip – Springville – Sunporch.

Those taking the tour are asked to wear flat shoes, as no heels will be allowed in the homes.

Refreshments will be provided at the Woman’s Club and the Gadsden Museum of Art.
