South Coast Plaza Tree Lighting

We had such a wonderful time tonight.  My husband and I went to the tree lighting for the South Coast Plaza.  We go every year!  The Segerstrom Family owns the South Coast Plaza and they run it with such class and style.  It is by far my favorite mall.  So back to the tree lighting.  First we attended a buffet dinner.  It was set up so gorgeous inside and out.  

 Upon arrival we were greeted by carolers. 

Then I got to meet Mrs. Claus & the Gingerbread Girls.

As you can see the ballroom of the Westin South Coast Plaza was decorated beautifully.  Who doesn't love an ice sculpture that looks like the carousel from the mall?  The buffet was amazing and the desserts were divine.   By the way, if you are ever in Orange County and need a place to stay I definitely recommend the Westin.

After dinner everyone received a cute Santa hat and went to watch the show.

  The show was put on by the Orange County High School for the Arts.  Featuring their Montage Orchestra.  The show was fantastic as always.  This is a very talented group of young adult entertainers.  
At the beginning of the show, they took a moment to acknowledge the troops who are not able to be with their families and loved ones, and reminded everyone to say "Thank You" if you should see any service members while you are out and about this season.
I love how the Segerstrom family loves to keep with traditions and is so family oriented.

The big moment was here!  The lighting of the tree!  If I do say so myself, it is the most beautiful tree ever and it is every year.  This year the tree is 96 feet tall and has over 20,000 lights.  It is breathtaking!!
Thank you for such a fantastic evening!!
