Celebrating its 47th year in the historic neighborhood of East Sacramento, one of Northern California’s most beloved holiday home tours is going virtual! The Sacred Heart Holiday Home Tour has always  been a beautiful way to kick off the winter season. So this year, the team at #KKDL has pulled out the plaid and offered up the preppy with the help of dear friend and collaborator, Tom Kurth of The Ruralist. The Macko household will get it’s designer makeover this year as we celebrate the family’s antiques, Stickley furnishings and Ralph Lauren fabrics. The kitchen and bath are also getting a designer upgrade, touting new wallcoverings and gorgeous marble countertops.

If you see us out and about around town collecting local goods to dress this year’s home, please say “hello” or honk your horn!

The free virtual Holiday Home Tour will go live the weekend of December 12-13. So keep your Sacred Heart Holiday Home Tour traditions alive by heating up the cocoa and baking some cookies or hosting an intimate friends luncheon or virtual cocktail hour while touring this year’s line-up online. East Sac Hardware has stocked up on holiday English crackers (a staple of our dining room holiday tablescapes) and plenty of twinkle lights for your celebration.

Regardless of your every-day décor style, there are a variety of ways to ring in the holiday season with your Christmas tree, table settings and outdoor spaces—just as we are for this year’s holiday tour. From themed and elegant ribbon, dazzling tree toppers, collected ornaments and twinkle lights galore, this year’s pretty in plaid motif will prove to be a stunner. In true home tour fashion, many of the beautiful decorating ideas presented are inexpensive, easy and fun, so the whole family can be a part of the trimming process. While traditional red and green hues can certainly set the stage for a merry Christmas celebration, you can also have a gorgeous display using non-traditional palettes and details. Whatever look you choose, we hope these ideas encourage you to celebrate in a way that reflect your personal style and brings your family closer together. After all, that’s what this holiday—and it’s festive décor—is truly about.
