Breakfast with…Nana and Santa!


It has been a few years since I took my two oldest daughters to “Breakfast with Santa” held in downtown Salt Lake City.  Not sure they even remember.  This year I placed a phone call to Titan, Laikynn and Hadli to tell them that I had called the North Pole.  I loved the reaction of gasps and screams when I told them that I had invited Santa and one of his helpers to have breakfast with us.  They were so excited. It is planned for next Saturday, December 13th at my home.

I searched to find the perfect invitation but was running out of time.  I swooped into Hobby Lobby today with only a few minutes to find something.  I could not find a package of invitations with Santa and the invitations I did find looked more adult-like and they were $5.99 for 10 invites.  I found this package of Chevron invitations that had 48 note cards plus envelopes for $9.99 and 50% off.  I thought this made more sense and I would dress them up with some ribbons and stickers.  This is what the package looked like.  I only needed five invitations and now I have more note cards to make thank you cards or more invitations for another party.


I could not find any Santa stickers or cut-outs and so I grabbed these cupcake toppers and just broke off the toothpick. I added a foam square to the back to attach to the card and to give it a little 3-d effect.  It wasn’t my favorite thing to use but it works and saved me some time.

The inside was super simple text from the computer and some red cardstock to give it some color.  I addressed them and they on our their way to their mailboxes.
