As soon as you walked in the door at Martin's West, you were greeted with sparkling Christmas trees, four-foot toy soldiers, a mountain of poinsettias and a huge gingerbread castle. The goodies and good cheer continued inside the banquet hall, where guests shared in a sumptuous buffet and later worked off the meal with a few turns on the dance floor.
