Tips for an Extraordinary Visit from Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus

Before the Event

Set Up – Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus’s outfit is very warm. Please do not set Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus’s chair in front of a lit fireplace or other hot area. Consider having a fan on in the area where Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus will be placed.

Set Up – Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus will need a sturdy chair without arms. A straight-backed dining chair will work fine. Leave a bit of room behind the chair for family photos if possible.

Set Up – Please have a parking spot available for Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus. It should be nearby but not in view of the guests. A couple of trash cans placed in a parking spot is usually enough.

The Event

During the Event – Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus’s Grand Entrance – It is always special for Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus to make a grand entrance. Plan for your guests to arrive before her. Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus will contact you 5-10 minutes prior to her arrival. Be prepared for your guests to all gather around and take photos of the grand entrance.

During the Event – Taking Photographs – Just about everyone will be taking their own photos with a cell phone even if you are providing a photographer.

During the Event – If Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus will be seated for photos try to avoid “back lit” background areas for your pictures such as a window (during the day) or a plain white wall.  These backgrounds are so bright they will result in Mrs Kitty Christmas Claus’s face and her visitors. faces to be darkened or in a shadow. A Christmas Tree always makes for a pretty background.

During the Event – If Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus will be passing out gifts be sure that they have labels that are easy to read. Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus REALLY appreciates a helper that can call out the names! All of the gifts should be able to fit into a 32-gallon trash bag and easily carried by Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus. If there are more presents than bag, Santa may be able to provide an additional bag for a helper to carry.

During the Event – Please no smoking – Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus quit smoking her pipe many years ago and would prefer to not be around smoke as it makes her suit smell.

End of the Event – If there is a payment is due please place it inside of a Christmas card or an envelope labeled “For Mrs. Kitty Christmas Claus” and hand it to her at the end of her visit stating “This is something that we would like you to have.”
