Christmas season has officially kicked off! The music, the decorations, and all the amazing events that are going on around the country. The magic is certainly in the air. Our family recently experienced the best holiday event in our area: Gaylord National Christmas on the Potomac! This is a a must do for any family visiting or living in the DC area.
They couldn’t wait to get to breakfast with Charlie Brown and Friends!
From now until January 1st 2017 you can experience everything the Gaylord has to offer for the season. The entire resort is like a Christmas wonderland. With special shows in the atrium, activities for the whole family, and the number one holiday attraction in the Capital Region- ICE, Gaylord National is the place to be for the holidays.
Our Christmas on the Potomac started off with Breakfast with Charlie Brown and Friends!
This event includes a buffet breakfast, featuring Peanuts-themed dishes, and one-of-a-kind time with everyone’s favorite Peanuts characters!
After breakfast it was time to experience ICE! This year explore Christmas Around the World as you walk through more than TWO MILLION pounds of hand carved ice!
There are ice sculptures, two-story-tall ice slides, a live ice carving demonstration, and more!
The detail of the ice sculptures is amazing. I don’t think these pictures do it justice, you have to see these for yourself!
Brr! 9 degrees is quite cold! Time to warm up with the other holiday fun at the Gaylord. Grab your hot chocolate and decorate a Gingerbread. You might even spot a familiar Gingerbread Man! There is also The Elf on the Shelf® Scavenger Hunt, tea cups, carousel, Build-A-Bear Workshop, and more!
At night the atrium comes to life with two free new shows: Very Merry Atrium Show and Rock’n Around the Starlight Tree Atrium Show! Lights dancing, indoor snowfall, 60-feet high water jets, and more will delight the whole family. Shows begin at 6pm nightly. Check with the guide for any changes during your stay.
Christmas on the Potomac 2016
There is so much to do and see at Christmas on the Potomac. Plan your visit here today!
Our visit was hosted by the Gaylord National. All opinions are my own.
Saturday August 23rd from Noon to 4pm, Belfort Furniture is having a big Back-To-School Ice Cream Social!
This fun-filled event is packed with things to do for the whole family. Everyone will be able to enjoy delicious ice cream from Scoops2U!
Kids will also enjoy story-time with Belfort’s mascot Bucky!
Belfort has several classes for parents to get their kid’s rooms ready for the new school year.
Universal SmartStuff’s spokesperson Annie is sharing about trends and organization tips. Belfort’s Staff Designer, Stefani Arnold’s class is about room planning and how to get the most out of your child’s bedroom. Stefani will be sharing room layout ideas, furniture to include without losing space for creativity and play. My favorite topic: storage options for their rooms. I hope she talks about all those tiny tiny pieces my daughter’s toys include! Another will focus on accessorizing their rooms with wall art, lamps, rugs, and more! Plus, Karyn Roed of Casegoods Buyer, is teaching us about furniture safety and features to keep our children safe.
Bonus: Every Kidzgear purchase includes a FREE backpack!
Check out all the details for the event, including the schedule and learn how you can win a $2000 Youth Bedroom here!
If you have never been to Belfort Furniture you have been missing out. We went there to shop for my daughter’s big girl bedroom furniture and loved the selection and the prices.
