I’ve always wanted to organize a holiday cookie party or gingerbread making party, but the idea of all the baking and clean up during this already busy season honestly held me back. That is until I discovered these PREASSEMBLED Gingerbread houses for sale (you can also find them at Target). This was a total game changer— with ready to decorate Gingerbread Houses, a decorating party sounded like the perfect excuse for a pretty and fun girls night!
Shimmering whites and pretty pastels created the perfect palette for a beautiful festive get together. With the Preassembled Gingerbread House Kits, it was easy to dive right into decorating! No baking, piecing the gingerbread together or waiting for the icing to dry—just straight to the fun part! I set each guest’s kit out over an irridescent sequin table cloth. The table was set with place cards, blush water goblets and assorted milk glass dishes filled with decorating materials and treats.
Apothecary jars filled with various candies to decorate the houses doubled as beautiful eye-candy. Vanilla wafers and creme wafer cookies served as pretty (and tasty) decorating materials perfect for gingerbread house pathways, windows, doors and roofs. A stunning ombre cake by Confection Deception was our table’s centerpiece.
Inexpensive pastel bottle brush trees scattered throughout added to the festive tablescape.
Pink Jelly Bellies, shimmer M&Ms, non pariels, pastel Sixlets and assorted sprinkles were just some of the decorating options provided for guests.
Sweet Tooth Fairy Sprinkle sets were some of the most popular sprinkles—with Christmas lights to tiny candy canes, they made perfect accents!
Extra icing bags were on hand to make sure no one ran out!
This was such a fun and simple party to host, and would work as either a mommy-and-me event or ladies-night-in for just the adults (the kids shouldn’t get to have all the holiday fun!). I have to say all the Gingerbread Houses turned out so beautifully and there was a ton of leftover candy for everyone to enjoy.
After the fully decorated houses dried, we added ribbons to the cardboard bottom to finish the look. All the ladies had such a fun time relaxing and decorating their houses and went home with a beautiful decoration for the holidays. Honestly, this party was such a joy, I’m already planning another one! Happy Holidays!
