Gingerbread House Party

Last year my friend, Kim, decided to throw together this party that became a tradition!  She and her daughter sent out invitations to lots of little girls.  Every girl brings something fun to decorate a gingerbread house with.  The items are sorted into bowls, that each girl gets to use for her house.

Kim used graham crackers to create the houses, and placed them on upside down plates to create the yard of the house.  Last year she used thick frosting to put the houses together ahead of time. If you have ever done this, you know how hard it is for the frosting to dry and adhere the parts of the house.  This year Kim got really creative and used a glue gun!  She has the houses put together before every one gets there.  The moms fill pastry bags with the thick frosting.  They are on had to walk around and add frosting to the houses as the girls work excitedly on their houses.

Every girl poses for an individual photo with her house.
This is a tradition that is sure to carry on year after year.  Thanks, Kim, for your hard work on this super fun event I know my daughter looks forward to every year.
