The sun was shining as the doors were opened to nine of Little Silver’s most exceptional kitchens at The Little Silver Kitchen Tour early May, sponsored by the Little Silver PTO. More than 500 visitors from near and far got an inside look at not only the beauty and function of these kitchens, but also the talents of area builders, decorators, florists, and the culinary delights from some of Monmouth County’s finest chefs.
The Parker Homestead was the starting point of the Tour, where guests browsed and shopped goods from retailers at the Red Barn Boutique, housed in the newly renovated barns on the property. From there, the tour fanned out to kitchens throughout the town from expansive properties overlooking the Shrewsbury River, to a refurbished 19th Century Victorian home, and even the entire home of House of Cline designer Amanda Haytaian.
“We were so happy with how everything came together,” said Eileen Savko, co-chair of the Tour.
Kelly Boyer, co-chair echoed the sentiment “We couldn’t have asked for a better day to showcase our town, to work with exceptional homeowners, volunteers, vendors, underwriters, sponsors and friends. Everyone involved helped to make The Little Silver Kitchen Tour such a memorable event.”
The 2017 Little Silver Kitchen Tour would not have been possible without tour underwriter, Nemo Tile and Stone, the support of Monmouth Medical Center Foundation RWJ Barnabas Health, House of Cline Design, Builders’ General Supply Company, Almasy Law, Allied Building, The Parker Homestead-1665, Community Magazine, Design NJ, Sickles Market, Solari Creative, Little Silver Police Department, as well as the local community and area businesses.

Proceeds from the Kitchen Tour support the Little Silver PTO’s mission to enhance the educational experience of children by providing curriculum based enrichment activities, exposure to cultural arts, and programming that supports character development.
