Christmas at the Newport Mansions
November 23, 2013 to January 1, 2014
The glitter of gold and the sparkle of silver will dazzle you as you tour
three magnificent mansions decked out in Yuletide finery. Music, tours,
and spectacular decorations highlight the celebration of Christmas at
the Newport Mansions.
The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House--three National Historic
Landmarks and icons of the Gilded Age in America--are filled with
thousands of poinsettias, fresh flowers, evergreens and wreaths.
Decorated trees reflecting individual room decor anchor many of the
magnificent spaces. Dining
tables set with period silver and china complete the elegant setting.
And windows of each mansion are lit with individual white candles, in
keeping with the colonial tradition.
