Twilight Christmas Tours at the Vanderbilt Mansion

Every Holiday season, we volunteer to decorate a room or two at Centerport's beautiful Vanderbilt Mansion.  We love creating in a place of such history and splendor right here in our own backyard.  This year we chose Rosamond Vanderbilt's dressing room and created an appropriate decoration for such a space...

 Our Christmas Dress built upon Mrs. Vanderbilt's dress form for the Vanderbilt Museum Twilight Christmas Tour.

 The fireplace in the Mrs. Vanderbilt's dressing room was topped with a simple green garland and draped in crystals to compliment the chandeliers in the room and on the necklace on the Christmas Dress.
