From our dear friend, Sharon Cooper, comes this announcement:

Once again the Dallas Woman’s Forum will open their stately home, The Alexander Mansion, for all to enjoy during the holidays. This year The Woman’s Forum goes to France!

A French Fortnight 6th Annual Holiday Celebration begins the festivities on December 5-8 from 11:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m. Drawing upon the idea of a lovely French girl who introduces her handsome American fiancé to her family on Christmas Eve, the 1904 Alexander Mansion will be transformed into the setting for this charming story as it might have transpired in the days before World War I. Tours will be given on the half-hour.

Upstairs, guests can browse unique offerings in the gift boutique. Lunch will be served daily in the Bistro Café and holiday goodies, perfect for gift giving, will be available in the Pastry Shop. Admission to the Tour and Boutique is $10 for adults; $5 for children under 12. Reservations for the Bistro Café are $15. Reservations can be made by calling 214-823-4533 or at www.alexandermansiondallas.com.

The Alexander Mansion is located at 4607 Ross Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75204.

“As one of the oldest residences in Dallas, The C.H. Alexander Mansion is a city treasure that is truly beautiful during the holidays,” said Virginia Cook, President of The Dallas Woman’s Forum. “We have special groups and families who return year after year. They have made tea at the Alexander Mansion a ‘must’ for their holiday celebration,” added Tearoom Founder and Chairman Suzanne Palmlund. Sheila Rice, Chairman of the Holiday Celebration summed up by saying, “The Alexander Mansion is a magical setting for creating special memories, and this is a wonderful holiday tradition for Dallas families and visitors.”
