“Santaaa! Oh my god!! I know him!!” Sorry, couldn’t help myself. Ana here and it’s Christmas day with Buddy the Elf! Assuming most of you have seen this holiday classic (and if you haven’t, you need to ASAP!) , then you can imagine how giddy I was to put this month’s mood board together. So get out the paper snowflakes, smother your spaghetti in maple syrup and spread the Christmas cheer by singing loud for all to hear!

And for goodness sake, leave your favorite Elf quote in the comments!

The Drink: World’s Best Coffee of course! Or just a cup of your favorite hot chocolate with real whipped cream. Maybe throw a little Peppermint Schnapps in there and dance like you’re in the mail room.

The Food: I love the idea of a big Christmas breakfast. An easy make-ahead breakfast like this ham and cheese breakfast casserole keeps things easy on the hostess and delicious for the guests. Serve alongside mimosas for a celebratory Christmas morning!

The Entertainment: Put on your favorite holiday mix and let the gift opening begin! And afterwards, of course, snuggle up to a viewing of Elf.

    OMG, Elf is my favorite Christmas movie!! I think it’s because Buddy, much like me, gets all his nourishment only from food that belongs to the 5 sugar groups! Love the gift list, but I immediately noticed that it’s missing the most obvious, funniest and most important item: sexy lingerie for “that special someone” (wink, wink).

    This is so cute! I love the dress and the shoes!
    I think I’m still partial to the part where he answers the phone, “Buddy the Elf, what’s your favorite color?”
