December 8 - 10, 2017
Here's the Plan:
Friday Night at 6:30pm -
You're welcome to arrive and check in to your Boutique Hotel Room any time after 3pm. We've booked your room at _Palmer House??__. Make yourself comfortable, and relax. We've got everything ready for you. Click here to read a little about this historic boutique hotel.
Take a short walk around the Wine Room at 6:30pm.
Join us as we 'UnWined' for the evening with wine tasting, nibbles, and connecting with friends. We'll learn a bit about each other, and the redesign plans for the weekend.
Saturday at 9am - Christmas Decor Extravaganza
Make custom bows for your beautiful packages
Decorate your tree to amaze
Design a Tablescape for Holiday entertaining
Feel free to bring any photos of "troubling rooms" in your home. Classroom time will cover a few basics before we head out for a Hands-On Redesign in a local home.
We will have a lite lunch before traveling to the Interior Redesign home. Bring "inside shoes" to change into for the hands-on redesign (like clean gym shoes) so you can be involved in the creative change. Wear clothes you can move in, like yoga or active wear, because we'll be moving furniture, hanging artwork, and accessorizing to give this home a complete makeover.
Afterward, we'll head back to the hotel so you can clean-up before our Dinner at the Walnut Room ... a tradition for generations.
6pm Dinner at the Walnut Room
The world famous Walnut Room has been a Chicago tradition since 1907. Located on the 7th floor of Macy’s on State Street the Walnut Room is the first restaurant ever opened in a department store. With Circassian wood paneling imported from Russia and Austrian chandeliers, the 17,000 square foot dining room is both elegant and comfortable.
Sunday at 10am - One of a Kind Gift Show or Shopping on the Magnificent MIle, or both!
Go ahead and sleep-in on Sunday morning ... or get up and take a walk ... it's your time. We'll meet at 10am in the lobby ...
Hugs Goodbye -3:00pm
We'll wrap-up the weekend by 3:00 pm, so you can begin to make your trip home. We hope to see you again in February 2017 for the next Wine + Redesign Retreat.
