It’s that time of year again! The 38th Annual “Homes for the Holidays” Home Tour and Red Barn Holiday Boutique in Camarillo will take place Sunday, December 11, 2016.
To kick off this year’s event, let’s recap 2015’s event:
- Families and groups of friends lined up to visit 4 beautiful homes dressed for the holidays to raise money for charity.
- Guests explored a one-of-a-kind palatial Roman villa in Spanish Hills, with over 10,000 sq. ft. of interior living space
- Guests visited a 3,200 sq. ft. Country Hills Estates home, home of the 108-foot-tall Christmas tree with 12-foot star topping. The tree and star beams with navigation style strobe lights and flashes brightly in the sky.
- Guests admired a home with a dozen full-sized Christmas trees adorned with collected and handmade ornaments from the past 30 years. There was a unique Christmas tree to match every room’s individual theme.
- Guests discovered a cozy country cottage, where they admired the homeowner’s Hummel figurine collection, and collection of handmade quilts.
- Guests shopped the boutique of numerous vendors at the Adolfo Camarillo Ranch barn, finding handcrafted holiday wreaths, homemade gift baskets, unique jewelry, holiday decor, and more.
