Donuts with Santa was So Much Fun! Thank You for Joining Us!


We had a blast at our Fourth Annual Donuts with Santa event weekend! Two days jam-packed full of jolly goodness and holiday cheer. We loved seeing all of our St. Louis Mom families and community come together for our signature event of the season. 


Our venues – both so perfect, each in their own way. We couldn’t have done a whole weekend without being hosted by two unique venues. The Stifel Theatre ballroom had the coolest ceiling to floor feel; tall and regal. But so warm and inviting – just the way you’d want it to feel when you meet Santa and Mrs. Claus! The Union Station Hotel Grand Ballroom was nothing short of GRAND. It was huge and the perfect setting for a room full of Santa wishlists and sugary fun. 


Thank you for joining us at Donuts with Santa!


Santa and Mrs. Claus get the next biggest thanks. They enjoyed spending their time with each and every one of you. You all have reflected the Christmas magic back to them, and that is plenty to keep them going to finish out the year strong at the North Pole.


Old Town Donuts – our two-location donut destination. One word: YUM! Thank you for sharing your culinary craft of baked goods with us. We are so grateful that your 24-hour bakery packaged up almost 50 dozen donut varieties for all of us during our event weekend. Your gesture was as sweet as your donuts, which were the perfect treats for our attendees, big and small.


The backdrops created within our event were set up by the best of the business! The balloon garland and stand, the lighted letters, the tablescape, and the custom selfie frame! Pure talent in our midst, and this group makes it look effortless. Thank you, Balloon Joi, Alpha-Lit STL, The Curated Table, and Yard DeSIGNS.


If you got the chance to craft with Mother Art STL and Sweet Bliss Goodie Boutique, then you know there is something special there. Glitter and sprinkles were everywhere, and that is how it should be! Thank you, ladies, for being our two activity stations this year! Our young attendees loved hanging with you, too.

Let’s give a standing O to Gabriella of Gabriella Niccole Photography – a talented resident of St. Louis who donated her time on both days AND got your photo galleries to you in record time! She has an eye for families, and is a pure joy to work with her. Thank you, Gabriella!


If you joined us on Saturday, then chances are you also got to meet Rudolph and Clarice from Dream Time Princess Events! They looked so happy to be saying hello and giving hugs and high fives to all their fans! Thank you for sharing a bit of your afternoon with us!


And Aaron, from The Film Perspective, thank you for spending your Sunday afternoon with us, capturing the happiest moments of the littlest attendees sharing their hearts with Santa and Mrs. Claus.


To our lovely vendors! So many of you came out to see the kids meet Santa, and you worked hard to set up your displays for them to shop – and their parents, too! It was so good to connect with all of you in person and share this event space with you. You helped make our days brighter. Shop small, support local! Find these vendors on social media and show them some love:



To everyone who joined us, THANK YOU. You all bring us so much joy. We wouldn’t be St. Louis Mom without your support. From all of us, happy holidays and a happy 2022!
