Blithewold's Christmas theme for 2014 is, "You are Invited" it celebrates the Van Wickle family's love of entertaining. This year we're going to party like it's 1909, 1919 or 1929!
The Mansion is open for touring Tuesday through Sunday 11a.m. - 5 p.m. Buy your admission tickets online or at the door.
Dedicated volunteers spend over a year planning and crafting the perfect decorations tailored to the theme and designed for each Mansion room. The decorating begins the day after Columbus Day each year and barely wraps by Thanksgiving.
Christmas at Blithewold begins November 27th, come and enjoy the elaborate decorations. Make a reservation for our fun and informal afternoon teas, the Santa sing-alongs, the joyous musical performances, and the creative workshops for both children and adults!
