Sponsored by the Central City Opera Guild
The 46th Annual L’Esprit de Noël Holiday Home Tour, presented by the Joseph-Haarer Group at LIV | Sotheby’s International Realty, returns in-person after two years as a virtual event. This much anticipated walking tour takes place Friday, November 18th and Saturday, November 19th, from 10am to 4pm in the beautiful Glenmoor Country Club neighborhood. Five magnificent and architecturally diverse homes will be festively decorated by ten talented local florists and table designers.
One of Denver’s signature holiday events since 1976, the popular fundraiser benefits the historic Central City Opera and its education programs, which reach 40,000 people every year. Co-Chairs Louise Atkinson and Katie Grassby, longtime Central City Opera Guild members, are expecting a big turn out this year.
“We are thrilled that L’Esprit is back after a two-year hiatus and that our homeowners have so graciously opened up their homes to showcase the designers’ incredible talents,” says Katie.
As her family have called Glenmoor Country Club home since 2000, Louise knew that the Cherry Hills enclave would provide the perfect backdrop for this holiday tour.
“Glenmoor is a special and intimate community only minutes from the hustle and bustle of the city,” says Louise. “We look forward to welcoming you to our neighborhood and hope that you will walk away inspired for the holiday season.” In addition to the home tour, the Central City Opera Guild will be hosting a holiday boutique and ticketed luncheon in Glenmoor Country Club’s Clubhouse on Saturday only. Tour goers can enjoy a buffet lunch during one of two seating times, then shop at the boutique for unique gifts made and curated by local Colorado vendors.
“L’Esprit serves as the perfect kick-off to the holiday season and is a fun way to spend the day with friends, while getting into the spirit of giving,” says Louise.
To celebrate the 2022 tour, a ticketed Donor Appreciation/Patron party –‘Twas the Night Before – will be held at Shaver-Ramsey Fine & Custom Rugs on Thursday, November 17th. Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served, and guests will be treated to festive holiday music from some of Central City Opera’s talented artists.
Tickets for L’Esprit de Noël Home Tour are available in advance for $50 for the Friday or Saturday tour, or $100 for the tour and Saturday lunch (limited availability). Tickets for ‘Twas the Night Before are $100 to $250. All tickets can be purchased at www.lesprithometour.com/buy-tickets.
