(MARLETTE) -- Over 120 people took part in the Marlette Hospital Auxiliary's "Home For Christmas" event December 5. Attendees had the opportunity to walk through four homes, each beautifully trimmed for the holiday season. The homes on the tour included those of Pete and Donnieta Benoit, Jerry and Sue Cook, Diane Peplinski, and Linda Baldwin. The auxiliary raised $756, which will be used to fund special purchases for the residents of Marlette Regional Hospital's Long-term Care Residence. Those taking part in the walk also had an opportunity to visit shops in and near Marlette and Burnside to do a little holiday shopping. Marlette's Historical Society members served refreshments to visitors of the restored Train Depot in Marlette as well.
The Jerry and Sue Cook residence smacked of magazine-worthy décor, including this gorgeously-trimmed Christmas tree in their living room.
Warm and cozy was the theme throughout the Peplinski farm home on Barnes Road. Tourers stayed long to enjoy the delicious snacks and refreshments while admiring all of Diane’s intricate Christmas furnishings.
This Precious Moments® themed tree and the extensive variety of collectibles was awe-inspiring as a focal point of Pete and Donnieta Beniot’s festively trimmed home.
All things country and primitive as it relates to Christmas could be found in the home of Linda Baldwin in North Branch. No need to Pinterest, tourers gathered ideas-a-plenty for their own DIY décor!
