About the Holiday Home Tour at Pinewood Estate

Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Holiday Home Tour at Pinewood Estate is the longstanding highlight of our Christmas at Bok Tower Gardens season of holiday-themed events. The 20-room, Mediterranean-style mansion is lovingly decorated by volunteers and sponsored designers.

This season, each room features a different design theme selected from the past 19 years in true “Best Of” fashion, which has never been done before. All the rooms are decorated by different sponsored designers, and the hallways, entrances and other spaces are adorned by Pinewood volunteers who have handcrafted many of the decorations. Each room design will have a different focus, but all will bring out that special feeling we get around Christmastime.

Children are encouraged to tour the 1930s-style home and are invited to participate in an ongoing hunt to search for “The Elf on the Shelf” – a new Christmas tradition enjoyed by families around the world.
