Thank You Sponsors!
Denver’s finest florists and table designers decorate the homes to showcase current holiday décor design trends. Participating this year are Adams & Jane, Birdsall & Co., Bouquets, City Floral, Dwell Antiques, The Lark, Lulu’s Furniture, Plum Gallery and Twisted Tulip. Included on the tour will be a small boutique of carefully selected home décor and gift items.
The Central City Opera Guild is a member organization devoted to supporting Central City Opera, a true Colorado treasure. Since 1932 the company has presented a summer opera festival in its restored 1878 Opera House located in the historic gold mining town of Central City. The Guild was established in 1974 and those pioneering women created L’Esprit de Noël as their signature fundraising event. All funds raised by L’Esprit de Noël support Central City Opera programs, including the summer festival, the Bonfils-Stanton Artists Training Program, the historic preservation of over 30 properties in Central City, and its education and community engagement programs.
L’Esprit de Noël is a treasured Denver holiday tradition, having decorated homes in neighborhoods throughout the metropolitan area for the past 40 years. This year’s tour will showcase five magnificent homes in the Denver Country Club neighborhood. While some of the featured residences are Denver classics with traditional décor, one is historic on the outside and contemporary inside, and another was designed in 1979 by renowned architect James Sudler II.
