Join the Central City Opera Guild in celebrating the season with the 35th Annual L’Esprit de Noël Holiday Home Tour and Boutique. L’Esprit de Noël rings in the holiday spirit when this well-loved historic home tour returns to Capitol Hill’s Historic Morgan District November 18th and 19th. The Morgan District is a hidden gem encompassing roughly three blocks just south of Denver Botanic Gardens. Five historically significant and meticulously maintained homes will be on display and will feature some of Denver’s top florists and table designers.
Nearly all of the florists and table designers have participated in past L’Esprit events, with the exception of Encore Style, making its debut to the event this year as both the florist and table designer for Home #2. Last year’s floral and table designer winners (The Plum Gallery and Patina) will be featured in Home #1. In addition, Wild Flowers, The Lark, HMK Designs, Bouquets, and Villa Home and Gifts (previously International Villa) will all decorate each of these homes bringing out the best of the season.
IF THESE WALLS COULD TALK…These stately homes of the past are rich in historic architecture and represent the solid construction and cultural dynamism of the roaring 1920s. The introduction of new technologies like a central vacuum system and providing a “home” for the automobile were incorporated into these magnificent residencies. While all of the featured homes on the tour where built around the same time, each are unique in their form and presence.
SHOP 'TIL YOU DROPL’Esprit also offers a fabulous boutique, free to the general public, located this year in the prestigious Cherry Creek North shopping district at 105 Fillmore Street in a vacant store space next to Hermes. The Boutique is open from 10:00am until 4:30pm daily during the Tour dates. A variety of vendors offer unique items, including gifts, clothing and jewelry. Shoppers can easily get a jump on their holiday gift buying, while supporting Central City Opera.
Tickets for the Tour are $18 in advance and may be purchased at all area King Soopers stores and at the Central City Opera Box Office (303-292-6700) or for $20 at Home #2 (825 Vine St.) during Tour hours (10:00am-4:00pm). Tour maps are available at the Boutique. For additional information, visit www.centralcityopera.org/lesprit.
