“First Annual.” Such a nice ring to it with such good intentions. But this is really one I’m hoping to recreate each year. With a table full of treats to decorate with (and snack on) the kiddos were in gingerbread heaven.
I decided to build the houses the night before since all of the kids are still pretty young. Thanks to Target, I had a quick and easy kit that came with 4 kid-sized Gingerbread houses, all with different details to make each one unique. I also bought extra frosting (in a jar from the grocery store, no judgements) and lots of extra decorating goodies.
We ordered some pizzas for the kids while the moms enjoyed a cheese plate and wine. Then the kids did a book only gift exchange and everyone left saying “Happy Christmas friends!” It was pretty perfect.
Ingredients for a cute Gingerbread House Party:
This incredibly easy Gingerbread Village kit (includes 4 houses, I bought 3 boxes)
Extra frosting, I used 3 store bought jars.
Fun decorations. The kit comes with sprinkles, spice drops, and candy balls. I bought extra plus holiday m&ms, marshmallows, skittles, candy canes, and candy lights.
