It’s that time of year again! The 2016 Christmas Caravan will be held on November 3rd, the first Thursday of November. If you act soon, you can buy your tickets at a reduced price from our local flower shop in Washington County, NE! The tour of homes will last from 10am to 8pm this year, and you don’t want to miss one minute of the festivities.
What is the Christmas Caravan?
The Christmas Caravan is an annual event that takes place on the first Thursday of November. Participants will be able to tour gorgeous homes throughout the area and see how flowers and other pieces of home décor can transform a plain space into a holiday sensation. This year’s theme is “Homes for the Holidays.” The event is a must for any home décor or flower lover. As proof of its popularity, we can proudly say the event has been held annually since 1975.
This year the Christmas Caravan will stop by four distinct homes. The first stop will be a home in Silverleaf, the second home is in Stone Creek, the third is in Barrington Park and the last house on the tour is a ranch overlooking Lake Candlewood.
Along with the tour, we will provide a delicious salad luncheon. After the luncheon, you’ll have the opportunity to shop at the Assistance League of Omaha’s Thrift Shop and pick up some home décor goods that will improve the Christmas cheer in your home this season!
Who does the Christmas Caravan benefit?
Proceeds from the Christmas Caravan benefit the Assistance League of Omaha (ALO). The ALO is a nonprofit group that works to improve the lives of needy children and adults by organizing philanthropic events like the Christmas Caravan. So, the money from your ticket goes to help families in the Omaha area that need help the most. The ALO does everything from assisting children with schoolwork to helping teens and adults recover from drug and alcohol dependency. We’re pleased to be able to support this great organization through our participation in the Christmas Caravan.
Who decorates the homes?
Put simply, we do! The exceptional florists at our flower shop in Washington County, NE, along with representatives from many other local businesses, make the already gorgeous homes even prettier by turning them into “Homes for the Holidays” with special floral arrangements and other home decorations that transform each house into a magical Christmas wonderland. Our creations are sure to give you some ideas of how to decorate your own home this holiday season.
