Breakfast With Santa! *UPDATED*


I'm looking forward to Christmas this year, having Mia just turned 3 I really feel she's going to be able to really enjoy the build up and join in all the festivities. Last year we took her to a local garden centre to meet Father Christmas. Whilst she loved the Winter Wonderland created outside the grotto, when it came to seeing the big man himself....she was terrified and spent most of the short meeting in tears! The second we left she was absolutely fine and only last week told me what gift she received from Father Christmas last year. Being a year older, and understanding more, I was looking for an event to take her to this year.

I love the idea of Breakfast with Santa. Mia loves other children and I think seeing all the other boys and girls will add to the excitement. Plus I only had to mention a cooked breakfast and hubby was game!

Wyevale Garden Centres are all around the UK and offer a Breakfast or Tea with Santa from 14th November right up until 24th December in most centres.

There are several food options and prices start from for adults £3.99 for a mini tea or breakfast, £7.99 for full and £9.99 for the children who will receive a present which is very reasonable. Dates and times vary by each centre and spaces are getting booked up fast so if this is something you'd be interested in, check out your local centre online here.

We have been lucky enough to be invited and cannot wait to go. I shall share what we thought when we have been!

Share with me your favourite festive activities and traditions you do in your family. If this is as good as it sounds, I'd love to start this as a tradition every year. As a child, we always visited Santa the weekend before Christmas at a local place on a train which unfortunately doesn't run any more but it's things like this that make unforgettable memories.

20th December 2015
Today was the day we had our breakfast with Santa and what a great experience! The room and tables were set up all festive and we were all eager for breakfast which absolutely did not disappoint! We had a full English breakfast, and Mia had sausage, scrambled egg, beans, a hash brown and a mountain of toast and a plentiful supply of tea, coffee and juice.
After breakfast Santa arrived, he was really friendly and the children got to have a lengthy chat with him before choosing themselves a present.
When Mia returned to our table, she received a Christmas Tree biscuit to decorate with icing, chocolate, smarties and sprinkles.
All in all, all 3 of us had a great morning. Nothing was rushed and there was just a nice amount of people there together. We all left feeling very full and festive.

  1. This looks brilliant. We took Zach to see Santa last year and he loved it. He even remembers the specific book that Santa gave him for a present. You've just reminded me that I really need to book - I bet the one we normally go to is booked up by now - you have to get in there so early nowadays! Hope it's enjoyed more this year! Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday
