The first weekend of The Santa Claus Experience 2020 is over, and oh my goodness it was amazing! In fact, it was SO GOOD that I was able to convince Santa to come back for more! He’ll be here on November 23rd and December 2nd. Let me know if you’d like to book your spot!
This weekend was so magical, and I don’t even know how to put it all into words! Kids always love seeing Santa (except for those few criers) but this year was a whole new level of fun! Immediately when families walked in, there were gasps of wonder and excitement, because the ENTIRE HOUSE had been decked out to be a holiday wonderland! There were fun activities to do, there was the always-favorite Elfie Selfie Station, there was holiday artwork to choose for your own, a delicious Hot Cocoa Bar with all sorts of goodies, a candy machine, Christmas music, and more! It was like being at the North Pole!
Obviously, though, the very best part was Santa Claus. I transformed the studio into a magical place to interact with Santa and have fun! I think the thing that surprised me the most was that it wasn’t just kids coming to enjoy the experience— adults were coming for their turn, too! I even had some couples come with no kids at all, just to get their time and photos with Santa Claus! The milk and cookies were a huge hit, the activity was a fun way to work alongside Santa, and there are some truly PRECIOUS photos of the story time with Santa, with kids and adults alike! And those criers I mentioned before? Well, there were not very many of those because the environment in the studio with Santa was SO calming and fun, and 30 minutes is plenty of time to warm up to the big guy and give a big smile!
After photos were taken, each family had a chance to head to the other room and look through their photos right then and there! What better way to remember the magic than to choose your favorite memories right away? People ooh’d and ahh’d as they chose their photos and placed their orders for gorgeous Remember The Magic pieces! This is also when the kids were given their official Nice List Certificates and a sticker saying they met Santa!
I couldn’t have pulled off this huge weekend (or the days to come) without the help of some awesome friends and family! I had several helpers over the weekend (we called them Magic Makers) and even my little kiddos helped out at the Elfie Selfie station! This weekend was so intense, and I couldn’t have made it happen without every single one of them.
I loved this past weekend so much, and I am so excited to do the next round of The Santa Claus Experience! Book your place quickly, because those spots are filling up FAST! Remember, Santa Claus is coming to town on Monday, November 23rd and Wednesday, December 2nd! Send me a message, or give me a call! 1 (719) 645-9429
