The W.H. Stark House welcomes the spring season and invites the public to see blooming gardens on the grounds and Easter decorations throughout the first-floor of The House. During a tour, visitors will see the many blooms that follow the pathways leading from the adjacent Carriage House. These include red poppies, deep purple and yellow irises, pink Belinda Dream roses, amaryllises, petunias and coleus. The blooms add a variety of colors to the already beautiful grounds of The W.H. Stark House.

Visitors will be greeted in the foyer with an arrangement of silk delphiniums in a large American Brilliant Cut Glass Vase by T.G. Hawkes. In the Library, a Gorham Silver Basket holds Easter eggs, and reproduction Victorian paper-maché eggs are placed around the table; overlooking the setting is a large decorative rabbit. On the Dining Room table, is a rare tea service by Danish silversmith Georg Jensen (1866-1935) on display for the first time. This tea service in the Blossom Pattern consists of a large waiter or tray, kettle on stand, tea pot, creamer and sugar bowl adorned with ivory handles. An American Brilliant Cut Glass punch bowl and 11 cups are also on the table, along with a group of sterling silver baskets and lovely monogrammed flatware. The decorations will be on display throughout the month of April to compliment spring and Easter.

“This wonderful collection is on display in honor of the Easter holiday. We invite everyone to take time to tour The Stark House to see these pieces and enjoy the wonderful flowers currently blooming around both The House and adjacent Carriage House,” says Patsy L. Herrington, Director of The W.H. Stark House.

Located at 610 West Main Avenue in Orange, Texas, The W.H. Stark House is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. For more information call 409-883-0871 or visit
