In December, the historic Bembridge Home is decorated for Christmas and open to visitors to tour the entire house and lovely grounds.
Historic neighborhoods in Long Beach are invited to decorate a room for the holiday season; Carroll Park has been included on the list of historic neighborhoods to decorate a room—we get to decorate a small office upstairs. The theme this year is Toys & Yuletide Tunes.
The decorating day is Sun. 11/12 from 9-11:30 at the house. If you signed up to volunteer to decorate, Kat will be in touch with you a few weeks in advance of date. We store decorations in the attic and if anyone has a few good ideas for the theme, let Kat know. The decorators also get to attend a dinner held at the house in January after the tours are over; all of the decorators from the various neighborhoods attend. We will get date on that on decorating day.
