The holiday season always beckons us to indulge in the sweet traditions that make this time of year truly magical. For my daughter, decorating gingerbread houses with her friends is one of those sweet traditions! If you’d like to start this tradition for your kids too, come with me on a on a journey of sugary delights and creative decor as I show you how I set up the perfect Gingerbread-Themed Holiday Party.
How to Set up a Cute Gingerbread Themed Holiday Party
First, I hung a red, pink, and white fringe backdrop from Oh My Darling Party Co. on the wall.
Next, I set up a dessert cart in front of the backdrop.
The top shelf of the cart held an whimsical pink candy drip cake with a gingerbread house topper on the top shelf, along with some gingerbread-themed Christmas crackers.
On the bottom two shelves, I added Magical Merryland Designer Gingerbread House kits from Bakery Bling.
Then, I set the table. I started by intertwining red and pink fabric in the center as a table runner. In the center of the table, I set up a cute little gingerbread man centerpiece with a “Cookie Taster” party pennant in it.
I added some of the christmas crackers to the table for décor as well.
Finally, I added red and white peppermint striped candles in pink candle holders to each end of the table.
Next, I put out my place settings.
Gingerbread House Decorating
After food, it’s time to decorate! Bring out the gingerbread house kits – they come with pre-baked gingerbread house pieces, a pre-filled bag of white icing, glittery sugar, candy sprinkles, and edible accessories!
To keep things organized, I used more gingerbread treat cups to hold the edible decorations.
Once the decorating is done, have everyone don some paper crowns and pop the Christmas crackers to finish up the fun and festive party.
This holiday celebration a sure to be a sweet and memorable success. Let the gingerbread magic begin!
