Gingerbread House Guest Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

Nothing is better than decorating gingerbread houses on a cold winter day. This party was sent to us by Nicole of Tradewind Tiaras. Instead of a dessert table, Nicole created a candy display for decorating the gingerbread houses. An assortment of decorating candy was displayed in colorful boxes with tags from Frog Prince Paperie. Do you see the cool backdrop? It is made of painted and cut Styrofoam to depict snowy hills.  The houses, snowmen and Christmas trees on the snowy hills were made of cookies. Pretty amazing, right? We also love how Nicole decorated simple cups with felt for homemade cozies. Guests filled their cozies with hot cocoa or mulled cider, and then stirred up their drinks with “Mixie {pixy} Sticks” to add special flavors like cinnamon and mint.  We love these fun holiday decorating ideas!

    Thanks so much for the feature! It’s always such an honor to have my parties debut on your amazing, inspirational blog. And huge thanks to Frog Prince Paperie and Modern Frills for their contributions that made the party so much more cohesive and special than it would have been otherwise! Little details really matter!

    Did you make the “mixie sticks”?
    If so, how?
    If not, where did you get them?

      I’m going to have a tutorial up for the “mixie sticks” in the next few days. It was so easy, and such a huge hit!
