12 Day of Christmas! Day 7: Brunch with Santa, Pittsburgh Christmas and a Giveaway! {CLOSED}

12 Days of Christmas I brunch with Santa & a GIVEAWAY! I howsweeteats.com

We’ve been looking forward to this day for weeks! Last year, on the morning of the Hotel Monaco’s breakfast with Santa, Eddie discovered it online and called to see if we could get a ticket last minute. We had SUCH a fun time that we couldn’t wait to get back this year.

It was a little different this year – breakfast was more of brunch, and it was in the Commoner (yes, so basically we took our kid to brunch with Santa in a bar) which was… different. It meant that we were at our own table and other people were still dining, so it didn’t feel *quite* like breakfast with Santa did last year. But we still had so much fun! As you can see in the video, let’s just say that this is a very adult friendly breakfast with Santa. Santa and his reindeer are up on the roof (a local farmer brings them in) and there is a big cookie decorating party with a grown up hot chocolate bar. Super fun! I think this would be even more fun when you have kids that are a bit older.

After, we walked around downtown in the rain to capture some of our favorite Christmas sights on video. xoxoxo

Yesterday’s giveaway winner for the Ambient Lighting Edit Palette is Anne Weber-Falk who said “I love the rich deep colors like cranberry red, forest green, navy blue and deep dark brown.”

Congrats Anne! Please email me at howsweeteats (at) gmail (dot) com with your mailing address!
