Kings’ Chapel Developer John Powell said the homes, ranging from French Provincial to English Country, highlight the beauty of Williamson County while providing so many great ideas for visitors.

“Wrapped in 350 acres of green space, the Parade returns to Kings’ Chapel for great home inspiration. We are also hosting 12 Days of Christmas fun events including a Southern Living tablescapes workshop, Pinterest Online Party and a great Instagram contest,” Powell said. “Each of the holiday festive homes has blogger decorated trees based on actual wishes of Make-A-Wish children with themes of the circus, Greece, the Grammys and Comic Con. The trees are also part of a silent auction,” Powell said.
