We are incredibly thankful to When You Wish Entertainment for sending Santa and his sweet elf, Peppa-Mint, all the way to Baton Rouge. We highly recommend you check out this entertainment company and their many characters to choose from. We were happy to welcome Bayou Time Babysitting and Nannies to their first event with us. They communitycollagebrought the cutest reindeer headbands and families had a great time visiting with them to find out all they offered. We welcomed back our friends at Sherman and Balhoff-Specialists in Orthodontics, who brought a colorful set-up with cool neon sunshades for the kids! We were excited to have Chelsea Meng, who is a local realtor with C.J. Brown Realtors here in Baton Rouge. She brought adorable cookies to share, held a giveaway at her table and talked to moms about house hunting! The kids had a blast decorating unique Christmas ornaments with Home Malone, which had beignets on them. This is such a wonderful business to shop for Louisiana-inspired art and lagniappe.

Tiger Deaux-nuts never disappoints! They brought the tastiest donuts around decorated perfectly to make all of Santa’s guests happy..and a white chocolate donut? Yes, please! We have to say … Newk’s Eatery brought the most delicious pulled pork sandwich that had swiss cheese, bacon and BBQ sauce along with their signature sweet tea and pink lemonade. We can’t wait to go to their restaurant to have more! Next, we had our dwsfoodfabulous friends from Bliss Patisserie on hand with an assortment of options to help the children {and parents} decorate their own Christmas-themed cupcakes! The end result was simply delicious. You’ll want to visit them for all of your sweet needs, trust us! We were delighted to have Whitney Andrus with Sensible Portions bring delicious biscuits and fresh fruit. Moms got a peek into their meal plan options just in time to wipe the slate clean for the New Year!
