Breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus Hot

Breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus

Breakfast with the Clauses will be a thrilling event for the children in your community. The event will take a little planning, but will be a source of immense awe! An indoor event would be most suitable for everyone’s comfort.


Pre-Event Preparations

The main attraction would require two volunteers (one male and one female) to dress up as Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus. Costumes for Santa and Mrs. Claus will also need to be made, purchased, or rented for the event.

Prepare and send out invites to the residents telling them about the program, timings, and location of the breakfast. You could also consider specifically inviting parents and grandparents of the children as well!


Add a Color Dress Code

Adding a color theme to the event will make it even more picture-perfect. Ask and encourage all the residents to come wearing clothes that are red, green, or white!

Planning Your Menu

Chocolate chip cookies or sugar cookies served with tall classes of milk or hot cocoa would be a wonderful combination and complement the morning event really well. However, you can also serve up a fuller breakfast with treats like peppermint pancakes or waffles, and other holiday-themed breakfast buffet goodies!

Don’t forget to decorate at the event with things like candy canes, gingerbread men, and marshmallows to enhance the festivities.

You may also want to add to the theme by purchasing Christmas-themed disposable paper cups, plates, napkins, and other decorations!


***BONUS*** Make a few dozen ornament-shaped cookies to make the event even more fun.


Photo Booth and Professional Photography

At events like this, photo shoots are a must! While there will be photos being captured everywhere around the room (and especially with the Clauses) - having a separate photo booth is a great idea!

Here is an example of some Christmas party photo props which will go really well with the event:

·         Reindeer antlers

·         Ear-muffs

·         Winter scarves, hats, and gloves

·         Elf ears and hats

·         Snowflakes of all sizes, or a snowflake garland

·         And of course, Santa hats!

A box full of fun props is sure to make the children, and even adults, happy to play a bit of dress up.

You'll also want to arrange in advance with a local professional photographer that will do the hard work of organizing and taking all the shots of children sitting with the Clauses.

***TIP*** Play some festive and upbeat Christmas music to the event to make the morning merrier!


Letter Writing Station

Last but not least, organize a table with papers, pens, and envelopes. Ask the participants to write or draw their wish lists to the Clauses. Children can either give their letters to Santa by hand or put them in a special basket or decorated box which the Clauses can “take along” when they leave.

***TIP*** Remind parents to add their child's full name to the back of the letters their child writes to Santa. This can stop by the office to pick them up later for some help with gift ideas!
