The spirit of Christmas truly makes this time of year absolutely magical, wouldn’t you agree?! Besides spending time with loved ones, I love getting crafty and making even little things extra special, particularly for my daughters! One of our newer family traditions is enjoying a North Pole Breakfast with our annual Elf friend, Buddy.

Our special elf, sent from Santa to assess if my girls will be on the nice or naughty list, makes his appearance in early December, and disappears the night of Christmas Eve. We’re pretty lucky that he’s not a naughty or mischievous elf, but he definitely keeps an eye on our girls!

Print, cut and create your “North Pole Breakfast” banner, with two types of snowflakes!

We have a special North Pole Breakfast with Buddy. Some of our friends wake up to a special North Pole Breakfast when their elves arrive. For our family, we have ours on the last day that Buddy is with us and we bid him adieu with a fabulous breakfast with lots of powdered sugar, marshmallows and whipped cream… you know, stuff to remind him of the snow he’ll be going home to! We have powdered donuts, hot cocoa, snowman shaped pancakes, with bacon scarves and berry buttons! We’ll even have santa hats made of strawberries, bananas and marshmallows! It’s a special breakfast, and a special meal and celebration deserves special decorations! So, I created this printable set, which I am thrilled with and hope you are too!

What’s for Breakfast? {Photo Tip}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // breakfast with berries, yogurt, granola, honeyIt’s summertime, well really, it’s kind of a perpetual summer in San Diego, but I digress… It’s summertime and it’s a great time to enjoy the flavors of the season, but more importantly the time with my girls. No crazy rush-rush-get-out-the-door schedules to adhere to, so it’s a perfect time to linger in the kitchen prepping breakfast with a little extra love.

Our breakfast parfaits include layers of: Greek yogurt, honey, fresh cut berries, granola, and repeat the layers again!

Photo Tip: When photographing food, be sure to get nice and close (as close as your lens will focus), like you’re about to take a bite through your lens!

What changes about your meals or your schedule in general over summer? I’d love to hear, so let me know in the comments!

And I should point out the elephant in the room, right? The blog redesign? I’ve been wanting to change things up a bit on the blog and when I saw this new theme “Pictorico”, my heart skipped a beat and I knew I just had to give it a whirl! Whatcha think? Hopefully you like it! I’ll be making some tweaks along the way, so if you have some suggestions, I’d love to hear ’em!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day! And if you haven’t signed-up for the Clicky Chick Creates email list yet, whatcha waiting for? You’ll get “7 Must-Have Kid Birthday Photos” printable photo tips as my thank you 🙂  {Password is sent to you via email when you sign up for the email list.}
