The club will present its annual fundraiser from 2 to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday with five homes in the Hickory Flat neighborhood decorated for Christmas and open to tour.
Tickets are $15 in advance at local shops or at the neighborhood clubhouse the day of the tour, where refreshments and restrooms will be available. The trio, We Three Strings, will also perform at the clubhouse from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Proceeds benefit Cherokee County charities, and last year's event generated $8,000 that was distributed to local groups.
Home tour Chairwoman Julie Cullins said the variety of decorations - both year-round and holiday - in the featured homes makes the tour so special. "We have something for everyone," she said.
This year's tour continues that tradition, with decorations that range from room-filling miniature train displays to elegant, glittering mantles.
The Brock Home
Cindy and Stephen Brock are a couple with many interests, which are reflected throughout the 4,500-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home they decorated themselves for the tour.
Highlights include the 'Sailing Tree' in the foyer, which they've dubbed 'Nutcracker Hall' for the tour. Brock, who has loved sailing since attending the Annapolis Sailing School in 1985, and his wife for more than two decades have collected nautical decorations displayed on this tree and elsewhere in the home.
Two more can't-miss features are the miniature train displays -- one is a Christmas village with a unique seaport, and the other is a West Virginia steel mill town that fills an entire room.
The Davenport Home
Faye and Charles Davenport are grandparents to seven, and their 4,600-square-foot home's decor balances elegant tradition and their strong faith with whimsical touches for these little ones.
Highlights of the six-bedroom and four-and-a-half bath home include a collection of Nativity displays placed throughout the home, an Angel Tree covered in handmade angel ornaments and a charming playroom with a "Where the Wild Things Are"-inspired tree.
The Davenports, who decorated the house themselves for the tour, began planning in the spring with a trip to their favorite source -- the Christmas store at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. -- for a custom centerpiece to grace the dining room table.
The Matthews Home
The home of Frieda and Bill Matthews is filled with Christmas sparkle and her favorite holiday figures: stars and angels.
Mrs. Matthews, who loves to decorate, is being aided in her tour preparation by Angela Major, the lead floral designer from Vine & Branches in Hickory Flat.
Together, they have sculpted a glittering display throughout the 4,400-square-foot, five bedroom and five bath home.
Highlights include the stunning mantle in the living room and multiple Christmas trees such as the living room tree, which is nearly gilded with the many golden ornaments on its branches, and a flocked tree adorning the home office.
The Miller Home
"Very green" and traditional are the key words for the decor of the home of Kathy Miller, which is being decorated for the tour by Up Towne Designs of Roswell.
A showplace on its own, the 5,000-square-foot, four-bedroom and five-bath home features decor with an emphasis on natural beauty and family.
Highlights include the many live arrangements, a family tree trimmed with framed photographs and a "fun" tree decorated in glittering, electric hues by daughter, Janet, 11, for her bedroom.
Also not to miss:?the fantastic back yard courtyard garden and pool and finished basement that's home to a sitting room, guest bedroom, game room with dance floor and ballet barre and wine cellar -- all of which are trimmed for the holidays.
The Stokes Home
"Homespun" is the theme of the home of Janie and Bruce Stokes, which is filled with handmade treasures created and collected over a lifetime.
The retired teacher is a quilter and her handiwork is present throughout the 2,700-square-foot, four-bedroom and four-bath home, as are crafts made by students and family. Crafters should not miss her studio, which is home to many pieces including a 32-quilt "story" collection.
Highlights also include two decorated live trees, a collection of hand-crocheted snowflakes in the home's windows and Christmas villages inspired by what else but schoolhouses and quilt shops.
