At Christmastime Casa del Herrero’s innate splendor becomes even more captivating with the donning of its elegant holiday décor; Christmas at the Casa is the once-a-year opportunity for guests to celebrate the season in the intimate setting of this National Historic Landmark. Locals look forward to kicking-off the holidays amongst friends, enjoying the beautiful Casa del Herrero in its magnificent Christmas finery.
This year the early evening event returns to being an intimate gathering held within the two-story Spanish Colonial Revival home, amidst the antiques and architectural details that make the Casa so unique. The party will extend out across the sandstone service courtyard and loggia, and into original owner, George Steedman’s “smithy” workshop, all of which will be festooned for the holidays.
Along with the Christmas pageantry and seasonal ambiance, the formal Christmas at the Casa gala offers an unusual silent auction with a new twist: beginning November 22, a pre-sale of giftworthy auction items will be accessible online at www.casadelherrero.com. Items up for bid include: vintage jewelry; a classic Santa Barbara getaway at a local, seaside George Washington Smith abode; a private event at the Bowers Museum in Orange County; and other tantalizing items. There will also be sign-ups for “party book” events which will take place at the Casa—an afternoon of croquet; a plein air master class in oils with artist Rick Garcia; an intimate dinner party for twelve; and a classic bridge party for twenty-four. Proceeds go toward stewardship of this historic property.
Guests will enjoy abundant sumptuous hors d’oeuvres and excellent wine will flow, truly precipitating holiday cheer all around
