Food Fashion and Flow: Breakfast With Santa

Breakfast With Santa

When you have children, the holidays take on a whole new meaning, especially Christmas. Every child has a love for Santa Claus that defies human explanation. I am always in search of great outings for me and my son and I  knew that having Breakfast with Santa would put a smile on my son's face that would light him up like a Christmas tree, so I planned for us to attend the annual Breakfast with Santa Event at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles. 

Before I told him about our little adventure, I playfully teased him by asking him "Guess who were having breakfast with?" after he couldn't figure it out I started singing: "you better not pout, you better not shout and before I could get the rest of the song out, squeals of laughter and "Santa Claus! Santa Claus!

  My little one had been anticipating our Breakfast with Santa for a couple of weeks and was counting down the days and once we were there, the look on his face was priceless.  The venue is absolutely beautiful and its a great way to expose your children to a more upscale experience.  There was lots of delicious food, servers catering to our every whim, a friendly elf greeting children and posing for pictures and lots of fun crafts such as decorating your own gingerbread man. The highlight was when Santa arrived and greeted the children. My son was thrilled to get up close and personal to Santa. He kept saying: "Mommy he is real ! Santa is real"

If you have young children or you just want to experience a nice holiday celebration. I strongly advise you to check out the Breakfast with Santa event. I have lots of photos to share! This experience  was so fun and memorable for me and my son, that the best way to tell the story is with the photos. I hope you enjoy them:-)

Stay tuned for more of our Christmas adventures!
 My son loves dressing up. He looked quite dapper and stylish today

Definitely making a fashion statement with his Skechers and pinstripe vest combo:-) He loves my scarves so when I got him his own cute little scarf he did not want to take it off. It was adorable watching him stand in the mirror and style his scarf all kinds of different ways.
