{Real Parties} Gingerbread House Decorating Party!

What a fun way to start the holiday season! This adorable party was just sent in from one of our fabulous readers, Kristi. She hosted this Gingerbread House Decorating Party for her two daughters and their little friends. She described it as "magical" as it started snowing at midnight the night before and snowed all day the day of the party! We are a little jealous, here in Phoenix since we never get magical snow days!

Kristi created so many fun details to this cozy party! The girls started off by decorating gingerbread houses. Each little girl had a gingerbread apron at her place when she arrived with an embroidered pin with her first initial attached to it. She also had a gingerbread house, eight cups of candy and a pastry bag of frosting waiting for her. The girls decorated - and ate candy - and then Kristi put each of their completed houses in a cellophane bag tied with a bow and pre-labled with a sticker Kristi made with their name on it.

Look at these adorable cupcakes!

The girls also decorated glass ball ornaments, felt candy cane mice, enjoyed hot chocolate and snacked on these adorable mitten cookies!
The girls then took home all of the fun things that they made, the adorable aprons, some extra candy and a little stuffed dog, all perfect snug in a cute gable box tied with an monogram ornament. We love Kristi's attention to details!

Thank you so much for sharing this adorable party with us, Kristi!
It is sure to give tons of inspiration to our readers!
