The Cascia Christmas Walk returns to its roots with traditional home tours offering seasonal inspiration for all who attend.
It’s time to deck the halls and trim the trees. In need of some inspiration before getting started?
Dec. 4 marks the return of the Cascia Christmas Walk, which this year will revive the traditional home tours of previous events. Four midtown homes are featured, all decorated with distinctive motifs and floral arrangements by local florists and designers. Each is unique in its styling and sure to provide inspiration for any holiday setting.
Along with touring the homes, Cascia Christmas Walk guests can peruse the Cascia Boutique, a unique shopping experience with 60 vendors offering a variety of holiday gift ideas. Seasonal gift baskets sponsored by Cascia families also will be available to purchase. The Cascia Bistro will be open, offering up delicious treats from Catering Kitchen LLC.
The Cascia handbell choir and select choir will perform holiday favorites in the Scianna Performing Arts Center as well, and Santa Claus will be present for photo opportunities.
The Cascia Christmas Walk is presented by the Cascia Hall Parent Faculty Association and benefits the school’s new world language lab.

Christmas decorations aren’t limited to this home’s interior. Inspired by nature, the outdoor kitchen’s tabletop is adorned with rustic reindeer and trees made of painted white branches. The enclosed patio’s fireplace features silver accents, matching the ornament-laden wreath hanging over the mantel. Inside, contemporary styles mix with traditional white and neutral decorations to complement the home’s aesthetics. A papier-mâché snowman, a favorite holiday decoration of the homeowners’, was made by Leslie Rowland and adds to the dining room’s atmosphere.

Elizabeth Wallis decided to highlight this historic home’s features in creams and silvers, with splashes of vibrant reds. Live greenery adds to the entry hall setting’s crystal deer and trees. The first-floor tour will include stops in the grand formal living room, kitchen and family room. Wallis incorporated pewter tabletop items in the dining room, with live amaryllis and poinsettias scattered throughout the home providing red accents.
