The halls of ONE Mission Bay were decked with boughs of holly this past week during Thursday’s holiday party hosted in the Resident Club Lounge. Residents of all ages had the opportunity to mix and mingle with their fellow neighbors as a multitude of festivities commenced. With the sound of holiday cheer echoing throughout the building, there wasn’t a dull moment in sight. Christmas carols were in abundance thanks to the fabulous and talented quartet from Encore at Christmas Dickens Carolers. OMB SoireeSuited head-to-toe in classic Dickens-era attire, the acapella group was a crowd sensation and set the holiday mood for the night. While singing along to classic childhood carols, guests made their way towards a mesmerizing display of desserts, courtesy of the wonderful Candicake. There, guests could stack their plates high with ornate desserts ranging from—chocolate gems filled with cookies and cream, tiramisu shooters, mini cupcakes, cheesecake shooters, and last but not least, their famous chocolate cake pops. Each dessert paired well with a hot chocolate conveniently located at the hot cocoa station where drinks could be prepared to guest’s liking with a touch of marshmallows, whipped cream, sprinkles or cinnamon for flavor. If wine was more your drink of choice, our future retailer Wine Merchant did not disappoint. OMB SoireeOffering a tasteful assortment of Prosecco, Rosé and Champagne, there was a wine suitable for just about every palette. Wine Merchant also provided a mouth-watering charcuterie spread of delectable fine cheeses and meats that went perfectly with French baguettes to add a hint of savory to all the sweets. Once you could no longer indulge in one more mini cupcake, guests gathered for an exciting raffle of an assortment of presents ranging from the Bose Solo 5 TV Sound System to make your home Bluetooth friendly to the Tile Mate that ensures your keys and personal belongings are never far from sight. There was something magical about watching faces light up as gifts were torn open to share and converse over with neighbors, families and friends that have all helped create the community that resides here today. We hope that all guests in attendance had a memorable night and left the evening with a new shiny toy in hand to add to their home here at ONE Mission Bay.
