Along with singing, cooking, celebrating family, praying, every year, my family and I also practice the fun tradition of leaving cookies and milk out for Santa. My kiddos love it! In today's post, I am sharing a simple set-up idea for Saint Nick. I hope you enjoy the post.
First, I laid a foundation of festive fabric. I love this snowflake design!
My traditional tray came next. I've used this platter ever since I got it as part of a promotion from Neiman's a couple years ago. I love the reindeer who dance merrily around the platter.
A simple dish filled with my favorite cookies of the season, Spritz, is set upon the platter.
If you would like to view my recipe for Spritz done seven ways, you may visit the post on my blog Parsimonious Pabulum here.
What is better than hot cocoa during the cold holiday season?
To top the cocoa, a peppermint stirrer (lollipop) shaped like a Christmas tree.
Sometimes mommy stays up and enjoys a cup with Santa. ;)
A few more shots.
