‘Tis the season for the Kappa Kappa Gamma Holiday Homes Tour. And our gift to you is an insider’s look at these fabulous homes from the 2015 tour, decked out in holiday finery by some of Kansas City’s finest floral designers
For Jean and Don Wagner, Christmas, and subsequently their house on the Kappa House Tour, is all about tradition. It was fitting that they chose Trapp and Company’s Kenneth Sherman because he has been their go-to guy for floral for, well, practically a lifetime.
“The house is very traditional, and we decided to reinforce that feel with lots of red and green,” says Sherman. Jean Wagner is very sentimental, and it shows in her collections. Her table is decked in Spode Christmas Tree, her buffet is filled with Dickens carolers and her tree displays ornaments she has been collecting for years. Sherman carried the formality outside with lighted wreaths on every window and large urns filled with strap-iron orbs and candles to create a stately presence. “We really wanted to use Jean’s pieces to showcase her nostalgia,” he says.
