On Friday after Thanksgiving every year, the Hawthorne Hotel transforms itself from fall to the winter Holidays. In preparation for that transformation our maintenance team wraps all of the wreaths with lights and adds the bows to them on the Wednesday before.
The poinsettia tree is assembled and filled with live plants on Friday by a team of decorators assembled from all the departments of the hotel.
The fireplace in the Tavern.
Wreaths wrapped, bowed, and ready to go.

I hope you enjoy getting to see us as we get ready for the holiday season.
