2016 marks the 21st Annual Cup O’Cheer Homes Tour to be held on Friday, November 18, 2016! To help spread holiday cheer, RMHC organizes a tour of four of the area’s most beautifully-decorated homes in an open-house format from 10:00am to 9:00pm (which are extended hours for this year’s event). The event also features a Holiday Tea at The Diamond Room. The first 1,000 guests to purchase a Tour ticket will receive a Cup O’Cheer china teacup and saucer, designed by the team at BridgeBlue Sourcing Partners and Obelisk Home (available for pickup at The Diamond Room). In the grand tradition of “high tea” at five-star resorts and hotels, Holiday Tea will be provided compliments of Churchill Coffee Co. and Simply Delicious will be providing each of our guests with a plate of elegant desserts, prepared exclusively for the Cup O’Cheer Homes Tour. Returning again this year, the CUP O’CHEER HOLIDAY TEA & MARKET will feature 20 home decor and gift shops for an exclusive shopping experience! Find out more under the HOLIDAY TEA & MARKET tab above.

Do I have to visit the homes in the suggested order written on the tickets?
No, you are able to go to the Houses in the order that is most convenient for you.
Do I have to start the tour at the time listed in the brochure (10AM)?
No, this tour is in an open house format. You can “come and go” as you please and enjoy each house as long as you would like. Some of our guests visit a few homes in the morning, take a break for lunch, choose the suggested route, and then continue the tour ending at The Diamond Room to enjoy the desserts & high tea. Many of our guests visit a home or two on their lunch hour during the day and finish the tour once they have left work. We want you to enjoy the tour to the fullest, so please, do what is most convenient for you and your party.
Is there a place to store my HOLIDAY TEA & MARKET purchases until I complete the Homes Tour?
Yes, a “package check” area will be provided at The Diamond Room for guests to store their purchases while visiting the homes on the Tour. Guests may pick up purchases at their convenience from 10:00am – 9:o0pm on Friday, November 18 at The Diamond Room.
