What better way to start the holidays than by giving back to those less fortunate?
On Saturday (Dec. 3), the first-ever Santa’s Secret Workshop kicked off the holiday season by bringing celebrities together for a day of family fun and gifting at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood, California.
Guests of all ages crafted, decorated cookies, got their faces painted, had their photos taken with Santa, and checked out some of the hottest products available this holiday season.
Guests who attended included celebrity parents and moms-to-be Tori Spelling, Tiffani Thiessen, Sarah Drew, Gilles Marini, Lindsay Sloane, Ali Landry, Sean Murray, Autumn Reeser, Ashley Jones, Alicia Coppola, Kiersten Warren, Sean Kanan, Spencer Grammer, Evan Handler, Marisa Coughlin, and many more.
Thanks to HP, guests were able to avoid that dreaded trip to the mall by having their pictures taken with Santa in the North Pole Photo Studio. The photos were printed onsite to an HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One printer, using HP’s ePrint technology.
The event was decked out with living Christmas trees from Adopt a Christmas Tree and baker to the stars, Jenny Keller of Jenny Cookies, flew in especially for the event and created the children’s cookie decorating table filled with delicious desserts.
4moms, makers of the mamaRoo baby swing, amazed guests with the soon be released Origami – the world’s first power-folding stroller. Every child left the event with one of Joovy’s products, which includes tricycles, and their line of strollers, pack-and-plays, and car seats for dolls.
The event helped fund LA Family Housing.
