Lake Wales, Florida
Last spring we visited Bok Tower Gardens for spring blooms and toured Pinewood Estates and gardens. Today let’s visit Bok Tower Gardens annual Christmas celebration. Come and enjoy poinsettia, bromeliad and amaryllis displays, live music on the 205-foot Singing Tower carillon, Sunset & Symphony Holiday Concert with the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra (Dec. 1), winter walking tours, and a variety of educational programs.
The Holiday Home Tour at Pinewood Estate began on November 23 from 10 am to 4 pm until January 6, 2019. The tour will give you a first hand experience of post WWII era Florida and an in-depth look into Mr. Bucks family as they come visit for the Christmas holidays. Join the three oldest Buck siblings Lucy, Dorothy and Leonard as they unfurl their amazing stories from the many adventures they had at Pinewood Estate.
The 20 room, 1932 Mediterranean-style estate’s decorations change each Christmas, and no two years are ever the same. Today’s photos are from the last few years Christmas decorations.
Every room is decorated including the bathrooms.
There are 4 bedrooms and each is styled differently. First is the granddaughters’ room.
Next is the grandson’s bedroom.
Then the bedroom of Mr. Buck’s daughter and her husband.
Mr Buck’s Suite in Pinewood Estate reflects his love for America and his respect for the brave men and women who serve. He was a military consultant for Bethlehem Steel
The other rooms of the house are also colorfully decorated.
Remember, each year the decorations are different, but there will always be lots of Christmas trees and decorations.
In the garden even the fountain is surrounded by poinsettias.
If you are in central Florida in December, take a day to explore Bok Tower Garden and Pinewood Estate Mansion. For more information on the garden or its history, see my spring post, Bok Tower Gardens.
One year there was a Christmas tree made of bromeliads.
