Snowmen and reindeer, Santas in sleighs with gifts piled high, Christmas trees decked out for the holiday, garland and bows galore.

There’s more of everything at this year’s Christmas Fantasy House, starting Oct. 29. It will take place in a 25,000-square-foot lakefront mansion, and one-third more decorators worked to dress the home in holiday style. 

Gail Johnson, decorator chairperson for the event, said she expects the Ronald McDonald House Charities Eastern Wisconsin fundraiser to be one of the best showhouses ever because of its venue: the former UWM Alumni House, which is now a private residence. 

“We are absolutely hoping and expecting it to be much bigger than events in the past because of the home’s size, location and history,” she said. “How often do people get to see a 25,000-square-foot mansion overlooking Lake Michigan?”
