If a boy’s birthday party can make his wishes come true, this party idea should have done it! Using Santa’s Workshop as a theme, mom Kelli of Print and Cut Printable, created a wonderful birthday celebration that was also a special invitation to kick off the Christmas season for party guests. Kelli’s attention to detail produced a masterful use of party supplies. The Santa’s bag birthday cake, workshop decorations and take-home favors are delightful!

Birthday boy Carter loves to dress up and play Santa year-round. Can you imagine his excitement when this authentic looking Santa showed up at the party? Besides posing for some terrific photos, Mr. and Mrs. Claus sang songs, read books, and teased with the kids. They loved it! Amy Snow Photography captured lots of special party moments.
A birthday breakfast buffet included quiche, muffins, donuts, milk and juices. There was also a candy buffet where a darling Santa’s bag birthday cake (influenced by Pottery Barn’s version) was the star of the table. Lily Cakes did a fantastic job!
Also on the candy buffet were chocolate workshop tools, Grandma’s sugar cookies, cupcakes, ornament cake pops, ice cream and a cocoa making station. A red cupcake holder suggests a Christmas tree and it held cups of snow (cotton candy)—cute!
Another wow was the Santa’s Naughty and Nice List cookies; these 3-D cookies even showed book “pages”!
The entire house was embellished with Christmas decorations and a bookcase was decked out to look like part of Santa’s workshop.
Toys, candies, and gift wraps filled the cubbies with holiday color. A garland of paper ornaments spelled out “Happy Birthday”. Ornaments were suspended with green and white baker’s twine.
One of the sweet details of this party is the letters to Santa station. Holiday stationery and pencils were provided so guests could make out their wish lists. A darling train mailbox was to transport the letters to the North Pole.
Details like the hand-stamped wooden spoons, chevron napkins and Christmas food medallions make sure the party atmosphere is multiplied on every level.
In addition to taking home terrific party memories, each guest received a red, gabled favor box which held a countdown calendar craft kit, an elf-shaped ring pop and a holiday ornament. What a way to start the holiday season!
