Join us the Historic Samuel Cupples House for its annual "Holiday Rooms in Bloom" Thursday through Sunday, Dec. 6-9.
The doors open for Holiday Rooms in Bloom at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6, with the annual Lighting of the Cupples House Christmas Tree taking place at 5:45 p.m. SLU alumnus Pat McGonigle, of KSDK Ch. 5, will be in attendance to inaugurate the holiday season. The evening's program will also include holiday favorites performed by members of Saint Louis University's Music Honor Society.
Once again, St. Louis' premiere florists have drawn their inspiration from the artwork, ambiance and overall beauty of the historic mansion to create radiant arrangements that reflect and celebrate the beauty of the holiday season.
In addition to the talents of participating florists, the Saint Louis University chapter of Alpha Phi Omega will lend their creativity, energy and enthusiasm to the festivities by decorating the second floor of the magnificent mansion.

There is no admission charge. In the spirit of giving, visitors are encouraged to donate either a new or gently used item of winter clothing to benefit the St. Francis Xavier College Church parish help center.
In addition to the members of Alpha Phi Omega, Cupples House staff would like to express their gratitude to the participating florists who have taken the time to make the mansion a special place to be during the holiday season:
