Christmas décor showcasing three fashionable eras in our history will be featured in a holiday exhibition and candlelight tour entitled, A Very Fashionable Christmas at the Kaminski House Museum. The dining room, the library and the drawing room in the Kaminski House Museum will showcase Christmas décor from various periods in American history.
The dining room will be dressed in greenery, holly, glass and glitter to represent the extravagance of the early 1900s and the Edwardian Period. Classic Victorian decor and more natural greenery and ivy decorations, indicative of the 1840s through the 1860s, will be displayed throughout the drawing
room. Lots of tinsel and sparkle dominated Christmas décor during the 1940s through the 1960s and will be showcased in the library. This was the first time in American history that Christmas ornaments were not produced in Germany but began to be manufactured by Shiny-brit, an American light bulb company.
The holiday exhibition and candlelight tour will be on Saturday, December 6, 5 – 8 p.m. and on Thursday, December 11, 5 – 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce, Julia’s Past & Presents (the Kaminski House Museum gift shop), Bienvenue Home & Swamp Fox Tours and Rice Birds. Julia’s Past and Presents will be open during our holiday event to assist shoppers in finding unique gifts for everyone on their lists.
