Devon Energy prepares to celebrate first Christmas at new Oklahoma City headquarters

Christmas bulbs, pine cones wrapped in red ribbons and lights are going up with care — and the assistance of a crane — at Devon Energy Center.

Stefanou was the perfect candidate for creating a new holiday tradition at Devon Energy Center, Reynolds said. Stefanou was tasked by Devon with ensuring the decorations, especially the lighting, respected other corporate traditions in the city and was a uniquely different addition to the city's Christmas festivities.

“He works outside the box,” Reynolds said. “He works with the site, and he goes for a larger-than-life experience.”

Klay Kimker, vice president of administration at Devon, said tours of other corporate holiday displays began in December 2011, and Rockefeller Center always stood out as a chief inspiration for what would be attempted at Devon Energy Center.

Ornament installation is set to be completed by Thursday. Installation of the 9-foot pine cones will take place in the Rotunda on Saturday, while construction of the largest bright red ornaments along Sheridan Avenue will take place through Sunday.
