Preservation Oklahoma Presents “A Designer Holiday at the Overholser Mansion”

OKLAHOMA CITY — For decades, the Henry Overholser Mansion served as the place for holiday parties and festivities. The home was adorned with decorations and the rooms were filled with merriment and yuletide cheer. This year, those days return when Preservation Oklahoma presents “A Designer Holiday at the Overholser Mansion.” A preview dinner is scheduled for Tuesday, November 28.

Local designers from Interior Gilt, Winter House Interiors, A-Line Designs, Trochta’s Flowers & Garden Center and Calvert’s Plant Interiors have been selected to decorate rooms in the Overholser Mansion in their own unique style. The home will feature holiday trees and mantles reflecting styles from modern to traditional. Freedom Lawn & Landscapes will install holiday lights, brightening the home’s exterior for neighbors and motorists. The home will be open for tours throughout the season during normal operating hours.

Of course, the holidays would not be complete without a dinner to kick off the event. For the first time in more than a decade, a special preview dinner will take place in the mansion on Tuesday, November 28. The dinner will feature holiday music and a chance to meet with designers. Seating is very limited. Tickets are $150 each and all proceeds will be used toward the upkeep and maintenance of the mansion.

For more information, please contact David Pettyjohn at 405.525.5325 or david@preservationok.org. The Overholser Mansion is located at 405 NW 15th Street in Oklahoma City.
