Old fashioned holiday evening at Vizcaya
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens presented an old fashioned holiday evening at Vizcaya, celebrating and honoring the inauguration of the grand estate as well as Vizcaya's centennial. James Deering came to Vizcaya on Christmas Day 1916, so the grand house celebrated this 100th year in a grand way.
It was a trip back in time, decorated for the holidays, as it would have been in the time of its heyday. Live music, hot chocolate and wreath-making were part of the evening.

Caroling was a big part of the event.
Wreath-making was very popular.

Built between 1914 and 1922, Vizcaya is one of the most intact remaining examples from this era in United States history, when the nation's most successful entrepreneurs built lavish estates inspired by the stately homes of Europe.
