Mod & Merry: A Farnsworth House Holiday

Looks like this event has already taken place.


14520 River Road, Plano, IL 60545

A mid-century modern holiday experience at a beloved architectural landmark.

Join us for a Mod&Merry Cocktail Party!

Jump start your holiday cheer with an unforgettable deck and house party with your sweetie or group of friends! Enjoy a beautiful holiday setting with warming libations and conversations on the new lower terrace and inside the Edith Farnsworth House. The house will be decorated ca. 1999, as we celebrate the life and legacies of Lord Peter Palumbo, second owner of the house. The fun and eclectic feel will include holiday hits from the 80s and 90s, spun by our DJ – and a firepit where you can gather to appreciate the glowing house and the stars above. Follow with dinner at an area restaurant and you have the perfect holiday season date night!

Tickets are limited, so call your friends and let’s get this party started!
