Bring back those cherished moments by hiring a professional, real bearded Santa this Christmas season. I am available for home visits, photo shoots, parades, private and corporate parties, "Caught Ya" events, pet pictures, gift delivery and many other occasions.
I am truly a "Santa for all occasions."
Santa Steve is amazingly patient, caring and very professional! From the moment he arrives until the moment he leaves; he is in character. Whether he is winning over an 18 month old to sit next to him or answering numerous questions from an 8 year old he truly has a gift of understanding exactly what is needed at the time. We absolutely loved Santa's visit in our home and seeing the excitement of all the children. We can hardly wait for Christmas 2018 to be here so we can make more family memories with the magnificent Santa Steve.
I contacted Santa Steve on behalf of Parkwood Hospital in Olive Branch to schedule a visit for our patients during the Christmas holidays. Santa Steve was a huge success and was widely enjoyed by all our patients, from the very young to the young at heart! Everyone was excited and couldn't wait for Santa Steve to appear on their unit, and that included the staff as well. Santa Steve will be part of our holiday planning from now on! I wouldn't dream of using any other Santa!
Thank you so much for bringing the Magic of Christmas to all the children in our area! See you next year!
Thanks Santa Steve!
He’s an awesome Santa and all the kids loved him! We’ll definitely be booking again!
We have used Santa Steve for many years. My kids enjoy seeing him each year. Great suit, real beard and someone who takes being Santa very seriously. Very organized with appointments and bookings. Amazing Santa who will be a great part of your event.
This was the first of what I hope will be many years to have Santa Steve in our home. The experience was priceless!
Santa Steve entertained the senior residences at Providence Assisted Living and everyone had a great time. He is the perfect Santa!
Our Church Senior Citizen Group Christmas party theme this year was “Hear Comes Santa Clause”. Santa Steve timely entrance, as we sang the theme song, with his Ho, Ho, Ho, Jingle Bells and Merry Christmas, was outstanding. Not only did Santa pass out Christmas presents to all 35 seniors, he took the time to interact with each of us. Santa’s remarks with our commentator was a crowd pleaser, everyone had a great time. Most of our Seniors had their pictures taken with Santa, our party was the best-ever, thanks to Santa Steve.
If you need the assistance of a professional and well-dressed Santa at any of your functions, then you need Santa Steve.
Without any reservations, I am honored to recommend Steve.
Santa Steve has done our annual neighborhood kids Christmas party for the last 2 years and I just feel blessed to have found him. Watching the kids around Santa Steve just melts my heart. He is amazingly kind and has the personality that you would expect the real Santa to have. He is great with the kids as well as the adults. From head to toe he is legit Santa! We have him booked for our 2018 party as well and I can rest assured that it will be another huge success.
This is our 4th year using Santa Steve for our Christmas party! He is always so wonderful with the kids and they love it! We plan to use him every year going forward and I would recommend him to anyone!
Santa Steve has come to our client appreciation event for several years now. He's wonderful with the kids and so realistic. He's the reason our event is a success each year. You won't find a better Santa.
I have worked with Santa Steve for 5 years and am thrilled with his work. He knows just what to say & do to make the children comfortable. Everyone is in wonder when he is around. This is money well spent.
This event was amazing for one reason, our Santa! He was so wonderful and great with the kids. His suit was very nice, beard was real, and personality was just that of your favorite Santa! I will never hire anyone else!
Santa Steve did an awesome job for our company Christmas party - east to contact and work with, responsive to our requests and so much fun!!
Santa Steve once again brought magic to our home on Christmas Eve! Our kids were thrilled when he rang the doorbell and we loved every minute of his visit. Thank you, Santa for helping us create memories for a lifetime!
Santa Steve arrived for my daughters 10th birthday party. He was awesome with the kids. I couldn't have ask for a better Santa. Thanks Santa!!
Santa Steve charmed patrons with the "Christmas Spirit" as he entered the restaurant where my workgroup was having Christmas lunch with our boss. Our boss was so surprised and his reaction priceless when Santa Steve presented him with his Christmas gift from Santa's gift bag. It was a great experience for everyone. I highly recommend Santa Steve for any event or appearance...large or small. He is original and exceptional.
Tunica Humane Society has a long, rewarding relationship with SantaSteve. Not only have we done photo shoots with him at our Christmas Adoption Events where people could bring their pets for pictures, one of our most successful promotions was Christmas in July. Steve Dodd is the kindest man and at these events, he becomes Santa Claus in our eyes. We all believe in the magic of SantaSteve. The animals believe in the magic of SantaSteve. We are so thankful this generous man and his lovely wife came into our mist. They have helped us raise countless dollars for the animals in our care at Tunica Humane Society.
Wow! Our family had 11 little ones at our family gathering and when Santa appeared they were so shocked amazed and happy!! a few were on the edge of not believing, but now are true believers again... after all Santa came to see them and handed out presents calling out each child's name on the present. "Hey I'm on the good list , I'm on the good list", said one of my grandsons. He was concerned when his gift was the last one Santa gave out. LOL . he was also the one to open the door and to see Santa!! The parents were just as exicted as the children and all the family took family pictures. He read the children a book about the First Christmas and they all were intense listneners. "This was best thing you ever did" (meaning having santa come) said my 63 year old bother. he was thrilled that his grandchildren were so happy. santa steve is the Great and spoke to each child and was everything santa should be!
Santa Steve is a complete joy to work with and be around. The kids and adults loved him. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Can't wait to see him again next year!
He was wonderful!!! He looks just like the real Santa. He was so kind to the children and let them spend as much time as they needed. We will call him next year for our party again!!
Santa Steve is the best Santa I've ever seen! Not only does he look exactly like Santa, but he is professional, kind, fun, and loves people.
He has attended our WWII Veterans' meeting for the last two year and he so good with them. We wouldn't use anyone else, for he is the best. Deep down, I think he is the REAL Santa.
Santa Steve was fantastic! We had a lot of positive comments concerning him. One of the comments that I heard repeatedly was how perfect his facial expressions were in the pictures taken. I would highly recommend Santa Steve.
Santa Steve is a wonderful Santa to work with during Christmas festivities. We used Santa Steve for two of our events recently: Christmas Open House (11/10/13) and the Hernando Christmas Parade (12/2/13). Santa Steve is easy to communicate with, always answers phone calls and emails, he was always on time and the kids loved him! For our first event, Christmas Open House, we had pictures with Santa. Santa Steve did a wonderful job enteracting with our photographer and was even better with the children and parents. Everyone loved him! Secondly, we used him for our Christmas Parade as the grand finale float with Santa. He was prompt, professional and most importantly a huge hit with all the attendees. We would definitely recommend Santa Steve for any of your corporate and special events!
Having Santa Steve at our restaurant twice this year was a huge success!! Both times, more parents brought their children to see Santa and Santa Cow than ever before!
I booked Santa Steve for a holiday gathering of 80 professionals and managers at FedEx on December 19, 2012. Santa Steve was absolutely great to work with while scheduling his arrival. He was very flexible, and Santa Steve was fantastic when the exciting day arrived for him to add joy and laughter to our departmental party.
Santa Steve came in with bells ringing and was a big hit for the large crowd. He stayed to take individual and team pictures. I dare say that this is one Christmas party that these FedEx people will never forget, and Santa Steve is a large part of that great memory.
Best Santa ever!!! Great with kids. They loved!!
I booked Santa Steve on recommendations from a friend for a party at our home. The comments I kept hearing again and again were "is he the real Santa?". He was great with the kids and even read a couple of books. Thanks Santa Steve.
SantaSteve popped into our staff meeting today to the surprise of the staff. He used his high tech abilities to advise who was on the naughty/nice list. He gave the naughty co-worker the proverbial gift of coal and gave our boss a great gift for a dinner out with his wife. He was witty and fun - a great way to lighten up a staff meeting for sure! He said and did all the right things leaving us full of laughter as he departed. Such fun!
He's great with the kids!
THe radio station I work for was doing a Toy Drive & Santa Steve came out for interviews. He was so quick and stayed in character for the duration.
I LOVE SANTA STEVE
Santa Steve was definitely the hit of the holiday party at our home. He intently listened to all of the children as they shared their Christmas wishes and he enthusiastically passed out the gift bags we prepared for all of our young guests. He even took some fun photos with the grown ups. Skip the fake bears and the vinyl boots - Santa Steve is as authentic as they come. Have him bring some cheer to your next party.
I hired SantaSteve to surprise my monthly Bunko group. He arrived on time, and looked very much like the 'real Santa'. He was jolly, he was merry - and led our group in an over-the-top hilarious story about the Right Family. We were lucky enough to capture the fun in pictures - and will certainly have him back! He is fantastic and highly recommended!!
Santa Steve was an awesome surprise for 13 unsuspecting children. The extra time in a home visit allowed Santa to engage with the kids and put them at ease for some of the best Santa photos we've ever taken. The parents are already discussing who will host next year! Thanks for a great night Santa!!
Santa Steve was very professional and obviously truly enjoyed talking with all 68 children at our party. He made sure everyone had personal time with him and made them feel special. I will definitely book Santa Steve for our future Christmas parties!
Santa Steve exceeded my expectations. Kind,smiling and friendly, Santa
certainly lived up to his true nature. Just the right size and the attire was
right out of Disney. Mid South Toys For Tots was most honored by your
presence and participation in our event.
He was professional, fun, engaging. It was a treat to work with him, I hope to be able to hire him for many more events.
We had a party at our home and had arranged to have Santa Steve come as a surprise guest. When he showed up, the faces of everyone lit up & the smiles remained from that point on thanks to Santa Steve. We all were really entertained by him & there were lots of laughs with a game that he had us all play. I cannot imagine that that there is a better Santa out there than Santa Steve. I would definitely recommend him to others. He's awesome!
Steve and I attend the same church in Southaven. Last year I asked Steve if he would consider to come and make an appearance at our "Young @ Heart", adults over 50, Christmas Dinner. He graciously agreed and brought gifts. After dinner Santa talked to the adults, asking if they had been good boys and girls. Everyone got involved in the fun, talking, sitting on Santa's knees etc. It was good to remember our childhood and laugh a lot. After all don't we all want to enjoy being together and sharing in laughter. Steve can fit in any occasion and you will go away grateful you were a part of the fun.
Santa Steve came to a "Christmas in July" pet adoption event that was sponsored by the Tunica Humane Society. This event was held at the Petco in Bartlett, TN. Not only did Santa Steve come, but Mrs. Claus also came bearing gifts of Christmas cookies in the shape of dog bones. Each bone had a different pet-related message. Santa Steve and Mrs. Claus had photos made with some of the volunteers and dogs and customers and they stayed the entire day and were very patient and jolly! We are so indebted to Santa and Mrs. Claus for adding this special touch to our event. I highly recommend them for any event. He is the real deal when it comes to Santa, as I believe he truly embodies the true spirit of Christmas joy and gentleness.
I saw Santa at the run/walk/bike night that was held on Monday nights. He was a quite jolly ole elf and brought a wonderful warmth to the Visitor's Center on a chilly night. It was a magical treat to see Santa at the end of a fabulous presentation of Christmas lights.
We have had Santa Steve do several personal in home photo sessions with my kids during the holidays. He was so wonderful to work with and my kids adore him! =)
My wife got this Santa for a cookies and tea party. He's good, REAL good! He's good with children and with adults. We'll have him back!
I hosted a tea party in my Olive Branch, MS home and had this Santa as our guest of honor. He is FABULOUS! His Santa suit is top of the line, his glasses are perfect, and he has a great beard! One of the little girls pulled his beard to see it was real, and a huge smile came to her face when she found it was. His demeanor is ideal for children, not over the top and not too laid back, just right. He will make your event something special!
I attended a tea party for six lovely young girls. They were enchanted by Santa Steve! They couldn't keep their eyes off of him, even with cookies and chocolate milk before them. Each one came to him for hugs and pictures. Santa Steve was warm and loving with the children and looked more like Santa than the jolly man himself!
