{Event Recap} 1st Annual Cookies with Santa

1st Annual Cookies with Santa

1st Annual Cookies with SantaA huge thank you to Santa and to everyone who attended our first Annual Cookies with Santa event sponsored by The Design Studio, CHOMP Delivery, and Laurie Whiting, Realtor Coldwell Banker Hedgers Reality. We had a great time watching the kids visit Santa, decorate cookies, do crafts, color, and write letters to Santa.

The children (and adults) made such beautifully decorated cookies.

The delicious cookies were provided by Carselli Sweets and gluten-free cookies were provided by Sugar Kubed Cookies. This was a fun way to let the kids show their creativity. We saw so many different decorating styles!

Peach Cart and Co provided a yummy Hot Cocoa Bar to keep everyone warm while they ate cookies and waited for Santa.

Thank you to Sisters Marketing + Co for providing coloring pages, letters to Santa, Event Passport, and more. They also provided a $100 gift card to one lucky attendee.

Orangetheory Fitness Cedar Rapids, our Santa sponsor made it possible for all the children to meet Santa. Thank you for giving the children a wonderful memory.

A great big thank you to Sarah from Sarah Fridono Photography.

She’s truly amazing behind the camera and did a great job capturing so many wonderful memories with Santa in front of the beautifully decorated fireplace.

This event also wouldn’t have been possible without the brilliant mind behind Derive. She decorated the entire event. Her mind for style put everyone in the perfect Christmas spirit.

Thank you to our many vendors!

We can’t wait to see everyone at the Cookies with Santa event next year on December 3rd/December 10th.
