This exhibit opens Nov 18, 2018 at the Newfields:
Lilly House has been decked out in ways you’ve never seen during our forty seven years of decorating for the holidays.
To celebrate this special time of year, we invite guests through the front door, as the family would’ve. Once inside, you’ll experience the home transformed. This year’s theme is a sophisticated handcrafted design inspired by Mr. Lilly’s famed book collection. Using paper, a traditional holiday decorating material, each room features unique surprises. Piles of presents, origami butterflies, and a giant paper chandelier are just a few examples.
Are you excited for the decorations and want to learn about the house and families who lived there? Public tours will be provided by Lilly House docents at 2pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through January 6th.
In the evenings, the historic Lilly House mansion will remain the backdrop for the Landscape of Light, where over 300,000 lights dance to Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. After hearing the captivating music, guests are welcomed inside the front door of the Lilly House to discover stunning holiday décor and floral displays.
