As this holiday season has been unseasonably cold, many of the extravagant outdoor displays are going unseen.

Thankfully many apartment and building dwelling residents have taken to decorating their lobbies. Rochdale Village, with its twenty building complex, continues its tradition of fabulous lobby decorations.

Rochdale’s Building twelve, especially, has been receiving a lot of attention for its holiday display of Christmas enchantment.

The lobby has been transformed into a Christmas Wonderland. Various types of candy canes greet individuals at the entrance. The walls have been transformed into brick walls of holiday delight. There are ‘presents’ stacked in one corner, peppermint candies high atop the walls and a welcome sign greeting residents and wishing them a Merry Christmas.

Santa’s workshop is nestled on the side with pictures of working elves. Rows of toys are depicted along an entire wall with a seven foot Christmas Teddy Bear the center of it all. The wonderland ends with a fully decorated Christmas tree by a fireplace flocked by thick red drapes.

The decorations are the concept and work of Stacie Jones who has an Event Planning business. Along with her family of elf residents, they pitched in to make the holidays a bit more cheerful for building residents.

Stacie finds that people who do not decorate in their homes for Christmas love the feeling the decorations inspire when they enter the lobby. “The kids love it. They are uplifting,” she said. Neighbors agree. Resident from near and far take their family photos by the tree and other Christmas scenes.

Elf resident Nicholas Hannibal decorated because of “the way it makes people feel”. It is definitely hard to be a scrooge with such a wonderland.

Happy Holidays.
