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.
How to Host 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.
Have you hosted a North Pole Breakfast?
