Homeowners Participating in Cup of Cheer Get Ready to Deck the Halls

Ready for the Cup of Cheer

“One of the neighbors came on July 4th, they were talking about our outside decorations, so my husband says, ‘Come on and have a look inside,’ and she says, ‘You really have to call the garden club if you’re decorating so much for July 4th,’ “Said Nina Casey.

Homeowners are preparing to decorate the halls this Christmas season. But none more than those who take part in the Naperville Garden Club’s 56th annual Cup of Cheer House Walk. Nina Casey starts decorating in mid-November. In addition to the main tree, it has 10 themed Christmas trees around the house. And she is ready to present it.

From the University of Texas, cupcakes and ice cream, Disney characters, and even a cheese head tree – they’re all a labor of love. But she has a favorite. “My favorite is actually the kitchen tree. It’s got a lot of gingerbread and candy canes and I love cookies. I love all the cute things about Christmas, ”said Casey. With so many trees in the house, is 10 trees enough? “That’s the maximum, I won’t go on,” said Casey.

Elisa Niesen is also ready to share the Christmas spirit. With more than 30 decorated trees, wreaths and other decorations, the Niesener Haus is ready for the Cup of Cheer.

“We’re happy that people are actually taking a trip back in time because we have so many real vintage trees and trees that you wouldn’t normally see in a showroom and things like that because they’re all made up of either families or memories or things that have been passed down, ”said Sneezing. But the hard work isn’t over yet. Sneezing and her children still have to set up the big tree, which happens just before Christmas.

Cup of Cheer House Walk and Market

A total of four people will open their homes for the garden association’s fundraising campaign, which will help usher in the holidays. Named for the commemorative teacup that each participant receives, the Cup of Cheer House Walk is a self-guided tour of each home for visitors to see different styles of holiday decor.

“I’m really excited that people are coming out of their homes and attending this event,” said Gwenn Lloyd, Chair of the Cup of Cheer. “I think everyone is ready to go out and get back to their traditions and the fun part of a vacation event.”

The house walk is on December 2nd and 3rd, accompanied by a market at Judd Kendall VFW where people can buy their own Christmas decorations. Tickets for the house walk can be found on the garden club’s website. Ring in the holiday, with some applause!
