With Christmas songs, shopping and cheer aplenty, it must mean it’s time for the annual Cascia Christmas Walk, the holiday event featuring home tours, a festive holiday boutique, seasonal performances, food, festivities and more. This year, the walk is set for Sunday, Dec. 2, and will feature four midtown Tulsa homes — each uniquely decorated by a favorite Tulsa designer.
But the Cascia Christmas Walk is more than just a home tour — it’s a shopper’s dream, too. This year the Cascia Boutique will feature more than 60 vendors from across Tulsa and the region, including On a Whim and Ribbons, all featuring items sure to match anyone on your shopping list. New this year is the Christmas Gift Silent Auction, where vendors will offer goods and services for Cascia Christmas Walk visitors to bid upon. Additionally, the Cascia Bistro will serve holiday cheer by the bowlful.
Hear sleigh bells? In the Scianna Performing Arts Center the Cascia Hall handbell and vocal choirs will perform classic carols. The talented Cascia Hall student choirs, pianists and string ensembles also will perform seasonal music at each tour home during the day.

Designs by Michelle Dillingham of The Design Shoppe
Michelle Dillingham has created an organic Christmas setting with greenery, pheasant feathers, birch branches, grapevine, sweethuck branches and more for a unique twist on traditional holiday decorations.
Whether in the formal living room, the kitchen or the family room, the spaces in this old-world style home are tied together with large-scale, natural elements that reflect winter.
“Instead of small things, we decided to have statement pieces because of the home’s size,” Dillingham says, noting the oversized deer topping the kitchen island and the fountain of feathers, burlap ribbon, crystals, branches and more donning the family room’s tree.
