The 11th annual Homes for the Holidays tour takes place November 15, 16 & 17. Six stunning homes will be decked out in holiday décor for a tour that supports Hospice Care Ottawa.
Florists and decorators throughout the city are going all out to create unique looks for each of the homes. Spend the weekend with the tour and be inspired. Be sure to include a stop at the Irish Embassy, 291 Park Rd in Rockcliffe, to visit the pop-up shop. This new addition brings local vendors together to help with holiday shopping. You can find everything from toys to food items, artwork, jewelry and more, all while getting a peek inside one of Ottawa's most elegant embassies. Be sure to pick up a copy of the holiday edition of Ottawa At Home while you're there!
