Christmas Catch Up

How is it that the holidays have already passed?  I feel like this year was the fastest Christmas ever!  Every year, we host two big parties, our kids Christmas party and the girls birthday party in January.  I look forward to these two parties all year long.  They are so much fun to plan and even more fun to attend.

Last year we did a Crafty Christmas Party with lots of fun Christmas Crafts for the kids so this year, I decided to switch it up some and do a Breakfast with Santa.  The kids all came in PJ's and Santa was with us all morning.

My invite set the tone for the whole morning.  I LOVE vintage and when I found this little Santa, I knew he would make the whole theme!

Pinterest was a wealth of inspiration for party ideas! We had milk and cookies, a hot cocoa bar and lots of fun finger food type breakfast treats for the kids and moms!

I think the most special part of the day was the looks on the kids faces when Santa walked in.  They couldn't believe it. I had a little gift for him to pass out to each child and then they had tons of time for photos.  

Was a fun day for everyone and a tradition we will do every year!  (Even Momma got her pic with Santa)


  1. What a GREAT idea to do with the cookies and milk!! Love it! Where do you buy the fun straws?

    1. Thanks Stephanie! Pinterest is my source of inspiration! I buy all of my straws from Shop Sweet Lulu, but stay tuned because we are getting ready to start carrying them in our shop too!
