For decades, the Henry Overholser Mansion served as a place for bustling holiday parties and festivities. The home was adorned with decorations and the rooms were filled with merriment and yuletide cheer. This year, those days return when Preservation Oklahoma presents the second annual “Designer Holiday at the Overholser Mansion,” an event where POK partners with some of OKC’s most talented interior designers who deck our historic halls for the holiday season.  

This year, local designers from Hannah Sutter InteriorsNotting Hill AntiquesRoost OklahomaScout Studios, Amber Nicole & Co., Winter House Interiors and Calvert’s Plant Interiors have been selected to decorate rooms in the Overholser Mansion in their own unique style. The home will feature holiday trees and mantles reflecting styles from modern to traditional, while on the outside, Freedom Lawn & Landscapes will install holiday lights, brightening the home’s exterior for neighbors and motorists. The home will be open for tours throughout December during normal operating hours. For information about the Overholser Mansion, click here.

To christen this year’s holiday festivities, a special preview dinner will take place in the mansion on Tuesday, December 4. The dinner will feature a five-course dinner, holiday music, and a chance to meet with designers.  Notably, this is the only time each year that one can dine in the mansion. Seating is very limited. Tickets are $160 each and all proceeds will benefit the Overholser Mansion Carriage House renovations planned for Winter 2019.
