There’s no place like the Emerson for the holidays! Beginning Monday, November 30, Christmas arrives at the Emerson with our traditional display of outdoor lights, festive decorations throughout the property and a few new surprises.
- Marvel at our Miniature Gingerbread Snow Globe Village on display in Woodnotes Grille, featuring over 200 miniature gingerbread creations housed in a variety of apothecary jars. Pieces are embossed with woodgrain then baked and meticulously assembled and lit with LED lights.
- Stop by the Great Room to view our very own “Mitten Tree.” Based on the beloved children’s book by Hudson Valley author, Candace Christiansen, the Emerson Mitten Tree will be decorated with over 100 mitten and hat ornaments embossed with sweater patterns as well as snowflake ornaments all made from salt dough. Copies of the The Mitten Tree will be available for sale at $13.95 each in The Shops at Emerson.
- Who wants an imaginary climb up Candy Cane Mountain?! Visit Ralph’s Café to view our candy cane tree surrounded by gingerbread houses, gingerbread skiers and spice drop and ribbon candy trees. You’ll be “hooked” by this charming display made with over 350 candy canes, eight batches of royal icing and six batches of gingerbread. Peppermint pigs, advent calendars and Hanukkah chocolate coins, as well as bags of candy to create your own gingerbread house and candy mountain will be on sale in The Shops at Emerson.
