What is more joy-filled than a fifteen foot Christmas tree of live, brilliant red poinsettias?! Newport’s own legendary creation takes pride-of-place in the Great Hall of The Breaker’s, obviously deserving of the featured position on this post. The Preservation Society of Newport County, celebrating its seventy-fifth anniversary, is the steward of this treasured American house museum, as well as eleven other properties.
It has become an annual tradition for Private Newport to feature one of the Society’s houses on a December post. From bauble-bedecked Christmas trees…
to massive draped mantels, Christmas at The Breakers is all about making a statement!
to include charming decorations in the many bedrooms (like the children’s)…
Fa La La La La…all is a feast for the eyes…and provides inspiration galore.
New this year at The Breakers–this great mansion, and its landscape, becomes an outdoor magical wonderland at night, with its grounds and paths awash in thousands of festive lights.
