A Very Merry & Bright Donuts with Santa!

0

December 2nd was very merry & bright as we welcomed families to St. Louis Mom’s Sixth Annual Donuts with Santa! 612North Event Space + Catering was a warm and inviting space to meet Santa with the exposed brick, archways, and scenic views of the Mississippi River and Arch grounds. The space was filled with the hustle and bustle of crafters, makers, established businesses, and entrepreneurs alike as they set up their stations and goods. Donuts were hand-delivered by Santa’s helper, and Santa and Mrs. Claus were ready to meet all the boys and girls. These precious memories were captured on camera by the talented Kelly Laramore Photography, with a gorgeous gingerbread backdrop executed by the amazing Trendy Occasions

As families entered the building they were immediately greeted by a grand Merry & BRIGHT marquee custom signage by Letters in the Lou. The balloon decor installed by AWS Balloons added the perfect details for an awesome photo opportunity! 

This event was made magical with the generosity of our sponsors: Little Sunshine’s Playhouse & Preschool and Foss Swim School!

Within this event, both sessions were dazzled by several performances. There was a storytime hosted by author Ryan Nusbicklel and Ballet 314 dancers brought along their storybook, gave graceful dance demonstrations, and posed for a photo with every little fan who came to greet them. We even had over a dozen Santas this year as The Dancing Santas graced the stage!

Little ones (and big kids, too!) created the most darling, ornaments courtesy of our friends at Play Street Museum. A keepsake that every family tree needs! They wrote letters to Santa, decorated their very own cake pop with Amy’s Cake Pop Shop, and enjoyed a magical snow globe experience provided by 3D SoftPlay
