The elegant 13-room Ross Mansion will be lavishly decorated by seven local florists and the local garden club. New expressions and creations will be presented with each florist doing a room different from each other and from what he or she has done before.
A gigantic Christmas tree decorated with all natural elements fills the bay window of the formal parlor at the Ross Mansion.

'A Christmas Carol' Dec. 18
The Seaford Public Library in cooperation with the Methodist Manor House will offer a unique father-and-son presentation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" on Monday, Dec. 18, at 7 p.m. at the Methodist Manor House auditorium in Seaford.
The father and son - both named Joe Plummer - have previously appeared together in Shakespearean drama. This marks their first Dickens collaboration.
The older Plummer has performed "A Christmas Carol" as a one-man show nationwide for more than 30 years. The new two-man version is based on Dickens' own text from his reading tours of England and America.
The two Joe Plummers play all 37 parts from Scrooge to Tiny Tim.
The younger Plummer has just completed a run as Orlando in Shakespear's "As You Like It" at the Blue Heron Theatre off-Broadway.
The presentation is made possible by a grant from the Delaware Division of the ARts. Admission is free.
