Santa Clausen’s Christmas Party

Ho Ho Ho! What does Santa love more than milk + cookies? A Plates by Lisa curated a dining experience, obviously.


This holiday season, Plates by Lisa catered the 2nd Annual Santa Clausen Christmas Party. With 40 guests dressed in Santa attire, Chef Lisa + Santa’s helpers prepared a meal fit for the kings + queens of Jess + Jimmy Clausen’s Winter Wonderland.


The fabulous hostess, Jess Clausen created an extravagant + beautifully mastered production in celebration of her birthday that had guests feeling holly + jolly!


The tablescape + ambience were picturesque with a beautiful + majestic elegance with florals by Mid Summer Mother. Perfect for a candlelit dinner where every Santa could gather + be merry for Mrs. Claus-en!


The crew of Santas began the evening in the North Pole with a charcuterie spread from BonAppecheese, specialty cocktails + passed appetizers curated by Chef Lisa. Nothing goes better with a Candy Cane Lane cocktail than lobster skewers and crabcakes!


When the sun set + cozy fire pit was lit, Santa’s little bartender filled glasses of handcrafted Santa Clausen Spicy Margaritas as guests gathered to play in the outdoor Clausen Casino. Good ole Saint Jim passed out presents from his list as the Santas were busy betting on who was naughty or nice.


The Clausen Santas took to their seats as the lovely Chef Lisa served up a beautiful holiday feast. A highlight of the meal were the bread rolls drizzled with rosemary infused butter, a moment on your plate that made your heart flutter.
