Virginia’s Robinson’s estate was aglow with decorations for the Festive Holiday House Tour and Cookie Extravaganza on Friday, December 6, 2019.
Betty Goldstein, head of the Membership Committee, kicked off the afternoon by leading a Docent Tour for the New Members event. Standing by the Christmas tree, which was lavishly decorated with pink feathers, poinsettias, and mirrored balls in the entry, Betty pointed out that pink was Virginia’s favorite color. Two additional exquisite Christmas trees sparkled with traditional decorations in the golden salon and the library.
Following the tour, everyone gathered around the buffet table on the loggia where there was a sumptuous display of homemade cookies. Empty boxes were placed at the end of the buffet table so guests could take home cookies to the special people in their lives. Rachel Ault enthusiastically served warm apple cider, the perfect traditional drink for this time of year.
“In the cookie of life, ‘FRIENDS’ are the chocolate chips.”
