Our 2nd Annual Cookies with Santa Events were so popular that we decided to host them in 3 locations this year! Check out the recaps from the other 2 locations: Mercedes-Benz of Cutler Bay & Residence Inn Marriott Surfside.
Cookies with Santa Key Biscayne
Our first Cookies with Santa Event begins with a scenic drive through Key Biscayne. Key Biscayne Presbyterian School hosted our Second Annual Cookies with Santa and it was a total hit! The event was outdoors on the beautiful bay front property. Families were able to walk through the one-of-a-kind campus and enjoy a number of different activities. It was great to see so many people (more than 350!) taking advantage of this amazing event out in Miami’s picturesque winter weather.
Santa was the man of the hour at this event! He was busy taking pictures and listening to the wishes of little boys and girls for nearly 4 hours. Everyone loved our jolly old St. Nick!
The Sweet Treats
Families were treated to a delectable cookie made by Sweet Treat Designs. The children and their parents were able to pick from a homemade sugar or chocolate chip cookie.
What is Christmas without hot chocolate? Guests enjoyed a full hot cocoa station provided by LYNQ. Families were able to have their veggies and fruits in their hot cocoa and they didn’t even know it, but shh… don’t tell them! LYNQ is famous for sneaking the veggies in their drink mixes. It’s a win-win in our book!
The Interactive Fun
Thank you to our amazing partners who made Cookies with Santa Key Biscayne so much fun! Children had the opportunity to visit a craft station courtesy of Pipa and Belu. There they were able to decorate gingerbread men, Christmas trees, or simply color. The mother-daughter team behind Pipa & Belu were one of the most popular attractions at the event! (Pro tip: book them for your next birthday party to guarantee a room full of happy kiddos!)
The team behind You and Me Time was one of our VIP vendors attending all three events. They provide carefully curated conversation cards with questions meant to spark deep and meaningful conversations with your loved ones. Their cards will get you talking about things you have never spoken about before. The cards make a great gift for the holidays. (They’re even featured in our Favorite Things Gift Guide!)
Miami Vice Photo Booth provided a fun interactive photo booth for families to take pictures. Some guests lucked out and even had an opportunity to catch Mickey and Minnie at the photo booth and snap a quick picture or boomerang with them. Popsigns provided a number of creative signs and props the help create fun memories in the photo booth.
The Live Entertainment
The entertainment for Cookies with Santa Key Biscayne was made possible in part by Kazzam by Party City. This online party rental platform is a one stop shop for all of your party needs. With the touch of one button we booked a very cute popcorn cart, face painting, and a magic show that left kids in awe!
Caroline Party brought their best Christmas Show with Elf-O, and everyone’s favorites: Mickey and Minnie. They even told a story about the true meaning of Christmas!
Children followed the show with an energetic and very exciting dance party with David from Sounds Sweet Entertainment. David was more than just a DJ. His dance moves awed the crowd and even the shy kids wanted to dance with him!
Thanks to Skiddies USA for providing our guests with samples of their 100% cotton potty training liners.
We are already looking forward to next year!
