It’s Been a Good Year…

 

Another year has nearly come and gone and we find ourselves reflecting on our favorite moments from 2014. There was the Inaugural Fish to Fork Event that brought six renowned chefs to the resort for a weekend of friendly competition. The Swingin’ Medallions returned once again for this year’s FL/GA Bash. Oh yeah, and we made this video…

 

 

Overall, 2014 was a fantastic year at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort, but the best is yet to come! That’s because we’re gearing up for the 2014 holidays and this year, we’ve adopted a go big or go home mentality. From the annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony to our very first Festival of Trees,  Omni AIP wants to be your hub of seasonal festivity on Amelia Island. Keep reading to find out all that we’ll be offering this year to put you in the holiday mood.

 

2014 Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony

 

The annual tree lighting ceremony is back and this time around, we’re amping up the holiday spirit. So don’t forget to join us the Friday after Thanksgiving, on November 28 from 5 to 8PM at the Shops of Amelia Island Plantation for loads of festive fun. As in years past, local fire station #20 will ceremoniously commence the evening with the grand tree lighting.  This will be followed by a night of family-friendly activities including pictures with Santa, hay and tree rides, culinary offerings, craft stations and more! And in the true spirit of a “White Christmas,” we’ll even be offering snow! That’s right, this year it’s going to snow on Amelia Island.

 

Holiday Celebration

 

Santa’s Workshop

 

We’ll also be offering a Santa’s Workshop at the Shops of Amelia Island Plantation every evening with the exception of Sundays beginning Friday, November 29 and running until December 31. Guests will enjoy a variety of activities every night, from Segway demos on Mondays to live entertainment & snow every Friday. Bring your camera as well, because every Friday and Saturday evening from 5-8PM you’ll get the chance to take your own picture with Santa. Or take a printed photo home, compliments of Portraits of Amelia. With something going on nearly every night, you’ll find that it’s incredibly easy to get caught up in all that holiday spirit goodness!

2014 Festival of Trees

 

Help us raise money for local charities this holiday season by joining us for our inaugural Festival of Trees. A number of organizations based right here on Amelia Island, including the Barnabas Center, the Council on Aging and the McArthur Family YMCA will be stopping by the Shops of Amelia Island Plantation to decorate individual trees for the holidays. The trees, which have been graciously donated by The Home Depot, will be adorned to each organization’s liking before being displayed publicly from November 28 to January 1. Guests of the resort and visitors will then be able to view the beautiful displays and vote on their favorite tree with monetary donations. All of the proceeds from the Festival of Trees will then be donated to the individual charities and on January 1 we will name the winning charity!

 

Holiday Dinners To-Go

 

Back by popular demand, Marché Burette is once again offering its Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinners To-Go! For only $99, you can enjoy a traditional holiday meal including a fully-cooked 12 lb turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie and more! The Holiday Dinners To-Go will feed up to eight and are crafted by our very own culinary team, so you know you’ll be avoiding situations like this. Pickups for the Holiday Dinners To-Go will be available the day of Thanksgiving and Christmas, but due to high demand, Marché will stop taking orders a week prior to each holiday. So make haste, call 904.491.4834 to order your Holiday Dinner To-Go and let us worry about setting your table this year.
