This holiday season, get a glimpse into the society scene of the ’60s as Ford House is authentically decorated as it was during the glittering holiday receptions Mrs. Eleanor Ford hosted to honor her granddaughters from 1959 through the ‘60s.

On a ‘Holiday Belles’ tour, hear stories of the Ford granddaughters’ receptions, each celebrating her debutante season. Admire the unique floral twist on holiday décor, beautifully re-created based on archival photos of the yuletide gatherings. And discover the creative ways the Fords’ elegant lakeside home was decorated over the years, including Christmas trees suspended from the Gallery ceiling.

The tour also features stories and photos of the Ford family’s Christmas traditions and other grand receptions and parties held at the estate.

Tours run Nov. 23 through Jan. 6, noon to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
