Look up to the ceiling of the Grand Foyer , and you will see the needlepoint "kissing ball" created by master needlepoint artist, Hyla Hurley, and her assistants. This year, the kissing ball takes the shape of Santa and his sleigh flying off to delight children everywhere.

Adding to the holiday mood is Christopher Radko's re-creation of Santa's office which sits on the pier table. Santa sits in his favorite chair, checking his list of good boys and girls, while two sprites give their assistance. The Christmas tree surrounded by gifts, and Santa's roll-top desk complete the festive scene.

The four Grand Foyer trees are decorated with festive ribbons, ribbon roses, glass pine cones and red balls.
