This year, we decided to throw a gingerbread house party. Since we were going up/down (I can never remember which) to visit my sister and brother in law’s home in Clinton, SC to see their holiday decor, we thought why not make it into a Gingerbread House Party for the four of us.
Before we got started on our houses… we took a tour around the house, to snap a few pictures of their holiday decor.
Next… my brother-in-law made us some of his ‘famous’ pizzas.
Finally… time to get started with Gingerbread Houses… here’s what you’ll need.
- Gingerbread House Kits (I purchased the kits from Harris Teeter but they’re also available at Target etc.)
- Candy (although candy is provided in most kits, it might not go with the color scheme you’re after. So it’s always a good idea to do a bit of candy shopping before.
- Extra bags and colored icing. (If you’re planning to stray from the standard white icing that’s included in most kits.)
- Christmas music or movies to listen to while you work.
