This Gingerbread decorating party was small and sweet. My daughter and 5 of her preschool buddies got together to kick off the holiday season by decorating gingerbread houses. I bought the pre-built houses to save on the frustration of building them and we went straight to the fun part- decorating them! I bought inexpensive pink aprons on Amazon and had them personalized at a local sports shop and embellished them with a little hot glue and ric rac. The girls had a blast decorating the gingerbread houses in the matching aprons. The table was set up as a "decoration station". Each place setting had 6 cups of candy and mini icing bottles. The girls were so creative. After the decorating we had lunch, story time (The Gingerbread Boy, of course) and dessert. The desserts were simple....gingerbread cookies, cupcakes with gingerbread marshmallow toppers and peppermine stick cake pops. It was a great way to get everyone into the holiday spirit.
