Santa Brunch Was a Huge Success

Here are some photos of our annual Brunch with Santa event which took place in the hotel yesterday. I hope you enjoy seeing these.  If you want to see the entire album of photos, just click here:  Santa Brunch Photo Album

There is a back-story to two of these photos, so be sure to read to the end.

Left to right:  Ceni Qoshja, Dining Services Assistant Manager; Claire Kallelis, Assistant General Manager and Food and Beverage Director; Santa; and Adam McInnes, All-around Good Guy in the Food and Beverage Department.

Our Banquet Chef, Maggie Johnson, made hand-decorated gingerbread men and women for the children.

I just love these photos of the little girl handing Santa what appears to be her "list" for Christmas!

Santa plays the fiddle for the little ones as he makes his way from table to table.

Julie Dougherty and Santa, playing and singing for the crowd.

Here is the "back-story" promised above.
These two photos are printed here with permission of Greg and Steph.  They attended with their new little one, Tucker.  The interesting part of the story is that they got married here in 2010 and during that process we really got to know them.  In fact, Stephanie allowed us to profile that entire process for our wedding blog readers.

We got to take photos and be with them from start to finish -- from the day they signed the contract, and every step along the way that had anything to do with the Hawthorne Hotel.  We have decided to repost that story on our Wedding Blog this week, so if you want to know more you can wanter over to our Wedding Blog and check it out.  All the links are on one page.

We are so happy to be a continual part of our guests' lives.  We hope you are too!

General Manager
