Colleyville Woman's Club

Organization to host its holiday home tour

The annual Colleyville Woman's Club Holiday Home Tour being held Dec. 7 offers a look at some of the city's most beautifully decorated homes, but this year is special for the club because it is the 30th anniversary of the holiday event.

"This year we have five homes, all in Colleyville, that all have different styles of decorations and memorabilia, so there will be something for everyone," CWC President Carol Wollin said.

As individuals progress through the homes there will be a stop for snacks, demonstrations, an opportunity to visit Santa Claus, buy poinsettias ($10) and multiple vendors.

"This is one of our main fundraisers," Wollin said. "We start getting ready for this in the summer; sometimes it's a year process just to find a home."

This year the homes of Jan and Steve Davidson, Cindy and Charlie Warner, Amy and Chris Putnam, Joan Vandergriff ,and Suzanne and Demetri Jobson will be featured on the tour.

Proceeds from the event go to fund various scholarships and grants.

"I've probably been decorating my home since Sept. 1," Cindy Warner said in a telephone interview as she decorated juniper trees in her front yard.

"The outside of my home is styled in a whimsical, Dr. Seuss style," Cindy Warner said. "There is lots of red and white, candy and lollypops. Lots and lots of lollypops."

Each room in Warner's house is decorated in its own style—the dining room is covered in a bell motif and uses red and gold as primary colors. The entryway has a Santa Clause–themed Christmas tree.

"My children love coming home to see the decorations. I always like to do something different from year-to-year," Cindy Warner said.

Putnam chose to decorate her home in a "rustic transition" theme.

"Rustic transition is Texas-themed," Amy Putnam said. "Think Texas Hill Country with a bit of modern. It has clean lines, not a lot of clutter, rich leather, ribbons and burlap. It is definitely a casual theme."

About the club

"Just this year we have given $93,000 to charitable causes," Wollin said. "In total, we reached $3.3 million in giving to scholarships and grants."

The group is also active in volunteer service throughout the community and has multiple special interest groups that devote even more time to specific endeavors.
