This year, throw a gingerbread house party for family and friends—it’s the perfect holiday activity! Below are a few tips and tricks for making your party a success. Have fun with it!
Tip 1: Lay butcher paper down on your table, that way it’s easy to clean up all the drips and drizzles of icing, not to mention the sprinkles!
Tip 2: Buy a gingerbread house kit! These kits are adorable and make setting up your party a breeze. And any good hostess knows that you can’t do it all and this is a shortcut for success!
Tip 3: If you are hosting a party for the young ones, assemble the houses beforehand so that they can get busy decorating from the start.
Tip 4: Set your table with festive decor and provide cookies and milk for the kids so they’re not set on eating all that candy.
Tip 5: You can also provide little aprons to keep icing and candies off their clothing.
Tip 6: Swap small frosting bottles for traditional piping bags—they’re easier for kids to handle.
