How to Host a North Pole Breakfast

All week Bailey has been telling how much she misses her Elf (Elf on the Shelf) Jingles.  I thought it would be fun to host a special breakfast to welcome in the Holiday season and welcome back Jingles.  I did not know it had a name until recently.  A North Pole Breakfast.

Make your Elf your Centerpiece – We put Jingles front and center as our centerpiece.   I used cotton balls and silver ornaments to create a snow like feel. I used a mini cake plate to display Jingles.  We gave her a mini mason jar, a mini donut and a red straw.

Select a Theme and Colors – Since Jingles is red and white we went with the traditional red, green and white and added gold.  Let’s be honest gold makes everything better.  For our place settings I layered our square wooden chargers with bright white plates that were the perfect backdrop for these DIY gold golden flatware.  I accented the plates with a red napkins.

Create a Backdrop – I am in love with this boxwood wreath.  I also picked up these mini stockings from Target and added them below the wreath.  The welcome sign from our everyday decor and fit in perfectly with our theme.

Food – This is a fun time to get creative with food.

  • These Christmas tree waffles were super easy.  I made the waffle mix and added in green food dye.  Simply cut the waffles in half on the diagonal and layer on top of each other to create a tree.  We used half of a ice cream cone to create the bottom of the tree.  I used a cookie cutter to create the topper out of an apple.  Finally added some sugared cranberries to decorate the tree.  These were such a hit I did an entire post just about the sugared cranberries.
  • Fruit Candy Cane and Jingle Bells. I used apples and bananas to create this fruit candy cane.  We also created apple jingle bells with mini cookie cutters.

Drinks – For the milk bottles I added the elf ribbon to the bottom.  Added candy cane pieces to the top of the glass and added a candy cane fun straw.

Optional – Gifts from your Elf.  This was a last minute addition for us, but it was the highlight for Bailey.  She could not believe how well Jingles knows her and exactly what she wanted.
