A Merry and Festive Holiday Brunch for Rogers-O'Brien Construction

'Tis the season to be jolly, and at Rogers-O'Brien Construction, they embraced the holiday spirit by hosting a remarkable holiday brunch for their dedicated employees and their families. This delightful event, made possible by the creative genius of Kristi from Eclipse Event Co., was a true celebration of joy, generosity, and togetherness. Join us as we dive into the enchanting story of this memorable occasion, where every detail was carefully orchestrated by Kristi to create a truly magical experience.

On a crisp Saturday morning, December 3, 2022, the Balcones Country Club's main clubhouse opened its doors to welcome the Rogers-O'Brien Construction family. The dedicated event planning team, led by the talented Kristi and Andrea, had been working tirelessly since early morning to set up a picturesque scene that would transport everyone into a winter wonderland.

The venue was adorned with holiday decorations, including gold tree centerpieces and black linens with alternating red and green napkins, creating a festive ambiance.

As the clock struck 9:00 AM, the main clubhouse came alive with the joyful sounds of holiday music, played on the in-house sound system, creating an atmosphere that was filled with anticipation and excitement. Guests started to arrive early, eager to participate in the festivities and soak up the holiday spirit.

One of the highlights of the day was the generosity displayed by the Rogers-O'Brien Construction team. Every employee brought a toy for the charity Toys for Tots, and the response was overwhelming. The toy donations were collected in designated boxes at the registration area, where attendees received their name tags and were greeted by the sight of beautifully crafted ornaments at their place settings. The spirit of giving was in the air, and it was heartwarming to see the boxes overflowing with toys. It took 6 hands and 5 trips to the car, just to transport all the donated toys. The employees' generosity truly warmed the hearts of all those involved.

The brunch featured a delightful menu that catered to all taste buds. From a build-your-own-waffle bar adorned with whipped cream, strawberries, butter, chocolate chips, and maple syrup to omelet stations offering a variety of delicious fillings, guests were treated to a culinary feast. The spread included vanilla yogurt with granola, a honeycomb display with fresh fruit, cinnamon rolls, and mini muffins. Traditional breakfast favorites such as scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and biscuits with gravy were also available, ensuring everyone left with satisfied appetites.

No holiday celebration would be complete without a visit from Santa Claus himself. Decked out in his iconic red suit, Santa made a grand entrance, bringing smiles to the faces of children and adults alike. Each child in attendance received a special gift from Santa's bag, which had been carefully prepared in advance. It was adorable donut snowmen, made by the amazing planner herself. It was a heartwarming moment to see Santa connecting with the children and spreading the magic of the season.

In order to infuse the festive atmosphere with even more enchantment and create everlasting memories, the event featured a charming kids craft corner, complemented by the presence of Photo House Films' captivating photo booth. This wonderful addition was poised to seize the joy and excitement of the occasion. With their booth, they skillfully captured candid shots and group pictures, meticulously preserving each precious moment to be cherished for years to come. Adding to the delight, guests of all ages had the opportunity to have their picture taken with none other than Santa himself. As a thoughtful gesture, every participant received a printout as a tangible keepsake, serving as a heartfelt memento of the special event. These cherished pictures could then find their rightful place within the kids' freshly crafted Christmas picture frame, bringing the magical experience to its perfect conclusion.

The holiday brunch at Rogers-O'Brien Construction was a resounding success, creating lasting memories for all who attended. From the overflowing donations to Toys for Tots to the delicious food and the joyous interactions with Santa Claus, the event highlighted the company's commitment to fostering a warm and inclusive environment for its employees and their families. It was a day of laughter, generosity, and celebration, reminding us all of the true spirit of the holiday season.
