The Junior League of Sarasota is putting a new twist on this year’s home tour, which runs Friday, March 22 and Saturday, March 23. Home tours have become popular in Sarasota, and although perusing other people’s unique homes can be fascinating, it can also be a bit daunting.
The last thing anyone wants to do is knock over that priceless vase in the center of the living room, but those fears can be cast aside, because Junior League’s Simply Sarasota Entertainment Tour of Homes is all about feeling at home and being part of the party fun.
Jill Berg, public relations co-chairwoman, noted the new direction of this year’s tour focuses more on learning and having fun rather than the “look but don’t touch” feel.
“You can actually go to this (home tour) with your friends and have a good, fun day,” says Berg.
Each of the four homes on the tour will have its own theme — guests will be able to not only look at but participate, as well. Crafts include cupcake decorating, creating party favors, learning the proper way to set a table for a formal dinner party and how to decoratively paint a wine glass. Each home will offer something for all five senses and ideas for any party, whether it be a child’s birthday, a bridal shower, a formal tea, a wine tasting or a backyard barbecue.
IF YOU GO
Simply Sarasota Entertainment Tour of Homes will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, March 22 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 23. Tickets are $20 per person. For more information or to reserve your tickets, contact the Junior League of Sarasota at 953-5600 or visit jlsarasota.org. Tickets to the preview party Friday, March 22 are $50.
