Once the season of Advent sets in, we very well know that it’s time for gifts, joyful wishes, and attractive decorations. Something that most of us await, especially the kids is the arrival of Santa. While there is a lot being told about the good old Santa Claus, let us spare this article to explore about the elves.
Elves are believed to be the ones who help Santa in making and delivering gifts to the children on Christmas Eve. Since the 19th century, elves have become a regular face in Christmas celebrations. We come across a lot of elf Christmas tree decorations and elf ornaments from gift stores. Let us take a look at some of the best representation of elves in Christmas celebrations.
A pair of elf shoes:
Elves are characterized by their distinct green color (even though they have red in their costume) when compared to the red or crimson Santa. A pair of elf party shoes such as the one available here – would turn out to be one of the best elf Christmas decorations this fall. These are made of polyester and would augur well for parties and Christmas celebrations at home. The children may even use it as stockings at the mantel.
Elf cake decorations:
Cakes are an integral part of Christmas Eve feast and cupcakes are also made to distribute among friends and relatives. Along with the traditional cakes, you can bake decorated cupcakes for Christmas celebrations.

However, you would not be able to use these elf legs to decorate the Christmas tree as there would be none of these delicious elf decorations left after some time.
