The women of the Coral Gables Garden Club are called “Designing Divas” for their work on the club’s annual Holiday Home Tour. Former club president Kay Murff coined the name, and it stuck for a reason.
For the past 40 years, members of the club have selected and decorated homes in the Coral Gables area with much flair and lots of holiday spice, this year being no exception. The 40thAnnual Holiday Home Tour, “Fiori Belli,” is set for 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9.
“This year we have six really amazing homes in the Italian Village and every homeowner that is part of the tour is absolutely thrilled and delighted to be working with us,” said Sharon Trbovich, club president.
Getting the homes picked and ready for the tour is no easy feat. A large committee and two chairwomen ask club members, neighbors and others to help get different homes for the Holiday Home Tour, which also features a plant boutique and bake sale.
The foundation undertakes wide-ranging activities, including scholarship awards, to support Coral Gables Senior High School.
