Here's a cute and clever idea I saw on a friend's Facebook page: Kick off the Christmas season with a North Pole Breakfast. For years, our Elf on the Shelf sets up our special breakfast when he comes back each year.

First, set the table with festive Christmas decor. I found a reusable vinyl tablecloth at the local dollar store. Add red and green paper plates and bowls if you'd like. Then add a note from your Elf, Santa, or even from you. Add some themed breakfast items and you've got a North Pole Breakfast!

Menu ideas:

  • Snowballs: Powdered sugar donut holes

  • Reindeer Kisses: Chocolate chips
  • Reindeer Poop: Chocolate-covered raisins
