This time of year, the kitchen seems to be the busiest place in the house. And, really, who doesn’t love a full kitchen packed with holiday helpers … as well as sweets, cakes and Christmas cookies? We all do! But the mess? Not so much.
With AtmosFX’s newest holiday decoration, Santa’s Bakery, you can entertain friends and neighbors with the high-energy kitchen help from Santa’s elves. After all, it’s not just toys they create – Santa’s industrious helpers are hard at work cooking-up sweets and confections for the children of the world, too!

Now, here’s the good news. Unlike a kitchen full of holiday helpers creating all sorts of Christmas concoctions, Santa’s Bakery Decoration is easy to set up and mess-free. Doesn’t that sound perfect for the holidays? We think so too!
So, how best to use Santa’s Bakery Decoration? We have some great ideas for you.
Something is Cooking in Your Home
This long-running single-scene decoration is practically made for your front window – or any other window that neighbors can see from the sidewalk. The larger the better! Simply place AtmosFX Window Projection Material in a window and project directly onto it. From the outside, people will believe that Santa’s elves have taken over your home, turning it into a busy bakery where they are icing cakes, decorating cookies … and making a few messes!
Don’t forget that his display looks great on its own, or as a lively addition to an already established Christmas display. Especially for those who have made a North Pole village or similar creation, where the hard work of Santa’s elves are on full display. Santa and his Elves Decoration, for example, is a great accompaniment. So too is Santa’s Workshop Decoration Collection. And might there be another, similar, decoration in the offing later this year?
Don’t Forget the Screens
Don’t overlook your television, computer monitor or tablets when it comes to displaying Santa’s Bakery. It is a great passive decoration when the TV is not in use. Or, for a less passive use, display it where the children gather and play – this looping, long-running decoration will keep them occupied for hours!
For those who have smaller Christmas Village displays in their home, another great use for Santa’s Bakery is to copy it to a tablet or unused smartphone and place that screen in the window in your Christmas Village. It will add some unexpected dynamism to the village – after all, who would have expected to see a miniature Santa in there, sipping on some cocoa and nibbling on some goodies?

Walls Work Well
Lastly, you can always create a great display by simply displaying Santa’s Bakery on any wall. Indoors or out, it doesn’t matter – just wherever it looks best! If you have a lot of Christmas-themed inflatables or animatronics, you’ll create greater interest and depth by projecting onto a surface directly behind it. Just make sure you place the projector up high, so that nothing casts a shadow onto the projection!
Indoors, pick any wall that is relatively uncluttered. That might be the room where the kids play, or perhaps near the kitchen. Anywhere! Put Santa’s Bakery on loop and everyone will be entertained as ol’ St. Nick and his elves stay busy in their bakery.
And if your family and guests are entertained by these industrious elves, then – who knows?! – it just might free up a little extra time where you can get back into the kitchen to create something for yourself!
