Last year we had our first ever North Pole breakfast and loved it!! Whether you celebrate it on 1st December, Christmas Eve or quite frankly any day in December it’s great fun … just make sure you’ve got something active planned afterwards!!
What is a North Pole Breakfast?
A North Pole Breakfast traditionally marks the start of your Christmas Festivities; this could be 1st December (to coincide with the first door of an advent calendar and/or a visit from Elf on the Shelf) or your first Christmas weekend when you decide to put up a tree, decorate the house and make a real weekend of it! Another option (if the thought of MORE food doesn’t over face you) is to have it on Christmas Eve or even Christmas day.
Ideas for a North Pole Breakfast
Ooooooh YES, get out the tack!! Get out those Santa plates and Christmas cups- bring out that Christmas tablecloth. Use as much red, white and green out as you can. Inflatable snowman at the doorway? Why not? Crackers on the table? Of COURSE! Sprinkle with candy canes and gold coins. It’s nearly Christmas after all!
Are your children Frozen fans? Give your table an icy twist with blue and Frozen themed table decorations.
A Sugar Feast
For anyone who loves ‘Elf’ as much as we do in our family, you’ll know that elves at the North Pole LOVE sugar. Think hot chocolates with marshmallows, pancakes with syrup and chocolate treats.
For a healthier alternative, use chopped up fruit to design Christmas Trees, sugar canes, strawberry Santas or make a standard breakfast into something a little more interesting!
Create a Festive Masterpiece
I was feeling rather creative one Christmas and as my cakes usually fail in some way I decided to make a table centrepiece! Cut a pineapple into a triangle shape and then add the other fruit with cocktail sticks. I was quite impressed with myself!!
Now you’re in the Christmas mood why not make the rest of the day (or at least the morning) full of Christmassy fun too? Write those letters to Santa, do some Christmas crafts and start decorating your home. And what better way to enjoy a Christmas Party with some fantastic Christmas Party Games!
