Gingerbread House Party

This Gingerbread House Party the perfect Christmas Party theme for kids. Decorating these houses kept them entertained the whole time (well, some of them just ATE the gingerbread houses)! I am pretty sure this will be an annual thing for me.  If you make the gingerbread yourself, it’s also very budget friendly. I wanted this party to be colorful and whimsical and it turned out just how I imagined it!

Food

We had gingerbread cake pops, gingerbread cake with cream cheese frosting, cinnamon sugar cookies, cinnamon roll cupcakes and lot of CANDY. All the baked goods but the cupcakes were created by Inspired Sugar. If you live in the Phoenix area, you must give them a try for your next party. Everything was so beautiful and delicious! They also created all the treats for my daughter’s When I Grow Up Party.

Decor

I created most of the decor using my Gingerbread House Party Printables. All the paper items from the gable boxes to the trees were created with my printables. The garland hanging in the middle of the table and on the desk were from Hobby Lobby. The cake stands and milk jugs were from a deal on Pick Your Plum and the scoops were from the Sucre Shop. I accented everything with glitter and ribbon! A little bit goes a long way :)

Before you jump to conclusions about my son being a genius decorator…I actually decorated that house. And now you probably think that’s just sad. It’s fun, but definitely not a talent I possess ;)

My favorite part about the decor was my custom wrapping paper I got printed by StationaryHQ. I used it for the place mats, to cover the window and to wrap the box the cake pops are sitting on. I painstakingly hole punched the place mats, but it was so worth it!

This was the first time I made gingerbread houses. I was nervous, but it’s actually really easy. I used this recipe from the Food Network and I created a custom template so they would be the perfect size for kids.
