Santa Themed Christmas Breakfast Ideas

Santa Themed Christmas Breakfast Ideas: a beautiful pink tablescape, with stockings hanging on the chairs, a menu, and matching pjs.

I thought it would be fun to share some Santa themed Christmas breakfast ideas.  This breakfast would be great on Christmas morning, or as part of your elf on the shelf celebrations, or a sleepover, or just any weekend leading up to Christmas.  We partnered with Giant Tiger to put the whole celebration together, and found so many cute items at great prices that you’ll love.

Coordinating Pyjamas

For our Santa breakfast we invited our closest friends (who we’ve bubbled with during covid)  and got new Christmas pyjamas for everyone to wear.  It was so much fun.

This would be a great idea for family Christmas pyjamas or for cousins too.  Our pre-teen and teen girls loved the new snuggly pjs and there were so many options that I could find something a little different for everyone, but have them still all coordinated.

This year I’m going with a pink Christmas and I found so many cute pink pajama choices in-store.  There were also lots of other colour options, and choices for kids, men, and women, including plus sizes. These soft robes were the perfect layering piece. And we also loved all the fleece knit, and sherpa pieces in bottoms, tops and night gowns, and added in a sweat shirt too.  Everyone was looking cozy and cute for breakfast.

The Table

I had so much fun setting the table.  This year I’m going with a little pink for Christmas, so I wanted to incorporate that, and I wanted to have a Santa theme.  I found everything I needed at Giant Tiger.

I used this snuggly soft scarf as the perfect table runner.  It was the perfect size, and can be used as a cozy scarf afterward.

One of my favourite additions to the centre piece of the table is the mini star lights, found in store.

Place Settings

For the place settings I picked up a set of plain white dishes at Giant tiger.  These are the perfect basic set at a great price.  I also used the gold cutlery, which is a favourite of mine.

On each plate I did a few special treats.  I loved this pretty iridescent Christmas ornaments, and they’re shatter proof so they work will on a table.  I found these adorable Santa chocolate lollipops in store and added a pink velvet ribbon to tie into our pink theme.  Lastly I picked up some raspberry pink candy canes, the perfect Christmas treat.

Hot Chocolate

I thought that it would fun to set up a really simple hot chocolate bar for the girls on the size.  I used hot chocolate mix, regular marshmallows, and mini marshmallows, including some pink ones.

This mini tree is so fun, and decorated with my DIY Star Garland -see how I made it here.  And since our theme was Santa I couldn’t resist this retro looking fun little Santa toy when I saw it at Giant Tiger.  He plays music and climbs up and down the ladder and he’s so cute. I also used some Santa mugs I had over here and tied on some pretty pink bows to fit our theme.

Stockings

I thought it would be fun to include some stockings for the girls, and I attached them to the back of the chairs.  This would be really sweet on Christmas morning too.  These are actually slipper socks, and they worked perfectly and matched our colour scheme.  Just tuck the mate into each stocking and everyone gets a pair of slipper socks too!

These sock stockings reminded me of when I was a little girl.  Way back then, we used to use real socks as a stocking on Christmas Eve.  We used to hang up one of our dads work socks because they were bigger than our little socks and Santa could leave us more candy and treats in them.

I attached the stockings to the chairs with some ribbon and added another iridescent Christmas ornament and these beautiful rustic wood stars.

There were so many amazing stockings stuffers at Giant Tiger.  And some perfect items for my pre-teen and teen aged girls.  For them I looked for special Christmas candy and treats, hair accessories, hair products, makeup, bath products, and jewelry.  There were also lots of fun toys and Christmas novelty pieces perfect for younger kids.  I even picked up a bunch of treats for husband’s stocking too. And Giant Tigers prices can’t be beat.

Santa Christmas Breakfast Menu Ideas

We always have a French toast casserole on Christmas morning.  It’s great because it’s a make ahead dish.  You can find the recipe for the Easy Overnight French Toast Casserole here.

Along with the French toast we served some bacon and sausages.  I also picked up some mini quiche in the freezer section of Giant Tiger and they were the perfect easy addition.

I always think of oranges when I think of Santa, so we had to include a bowl of them.  When I was little we always got an orange in the toe of our stocking, but it was more of a hold over of a happy memory of my moms.  I remember her telling us that when she was growing up it was still quite a big deal and expense to get oranges in the winter since they certainly don’t grow around here in Canada.  It always made me think of Laura Ingalls in Little House on the Prairie and the story of them getting oranges, pennies , and candy Christmas morning and how excited they were.  While oranges aren’t a luxury item anymore, they’re still the perfect addition to a Christmas breakfast.

I thought it would be fun to put together a Christmas treat board for our get together.  I picked up all the goodies at Giant Tiger.

My favourite part were the Belgium chocolate letters.  These are usually a stocking stuffer, but I thought it would be fun and delicious to spell out a “ho ho ho”.  I’ll be sharing a post next week with all the details of the treat board, and how I added a few pink touches to make it match our theme perfectly.
