Hosting Santa and Mrs. Claus has always been a dream of mine, and I’m thrilled that this year the dream finally became a reality!
My wedding planning skills from earlier this year ended up coming in handy, since planning our Santa event turned out to be a huge affair! I started figuring out preliminary details all the way back in February, including finding a rental with a fireplace and an elevator for strollers. I loved shopping for the decorations and details, right down to the milk bottle for Santa’s snack!
On the day of the event, two “elves” helped me welcome guests and coax some smiles out of our more hesitant guests! We had so much fun dancing around to Christmas music and creating memories for our visitors.
Even though the purpose of Santa sessions was to help kids experience some Christmas magic, I have to admit that I was a bit starstruck as well. Santa and Mrs. Claus looked just like I had always imagined them to look, complete with sparkling eyes!
I loved our first year of Santa sessions, and I’m looking forward to hosting him again next year! If you’d like to receive details for 2017, be sure to sign up for the KLP newsletter here to grab first dibs!
Now, it’s time to sit back and wait for Santa to deliver all of the presents that were specially requested! Have a very merry Christmas, y’all! 🙂
