We'd expect no less than classy at a Park Cities house party. If this holiday fete was any indication, the Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society has the same high standards.
The festive soiree at an on-the-market Lakeside home — stamped with the society's seal of approval — was open to members, who noshed, sipped and explored the home adorned with sparkling lights, wreaths, and classic Christmas decor. Among the visual treats in the historic, three-story abode were a faux bookshelf cabinet, a submarine window and an elevator.
Chatter centered around the Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society's annual spring home tour — set for April 4-7, 2013 — which will showcase four to five homes and celebrate Highland Park's 100th anniversary. "The biggest theme is the centennial," said Mike Tibbals, society president. A group of carolers raised spirits even higher.
The PCHPS, which dates back to 1982, strives to preserve, protect and promote the historical and architectural attributes of the Park Cities.
Among the revelers were Doris and Jack Jacobs, Tyson Woods, Freddie and Moody Alexander, Michele and Perry Wood, Gigi and Jim Lancaster, Polly and Dan McKeithen, Christine McKenny, Bunny Tibbals, and Nancy and Rick Kratzer.
