Gingerbread House Building Party

My creation





Today six little girls came to our house to decorate gingerbread houses, make ornaments, eat cupcakes, nibble cookies and drink hot chocolate with Michal and Kenna.


It was a candy-filled, mess-making, little girl squealing -- do have you have any idea how loud eight six- and seven-year olds are? -- sugary-fun afternoon.





And the fact that it started snowing at midnight last night, and didn't stop snowing all day today, just added to the Christmas magic of it all!




  1. What an amazing party. The looks on the girls faces is priceless. I am sure this is a day they will remember for a long time.

  2. Amazing! You have to win some sort of prize!!

    Wonderful time had by all, I am certain of it.

    Wow your beautiful girls are so lucky to have such a lovely mother one day I hope I can be so fun and creative like you I don't have kids yet so hence the one day but I absolutely love reading your blog. The party came out amazing such a wonderful idea :)

  4. This makes me wish I were a 6-7 yr old girl at this party!!! Looks like so much fun!

  5. Kristi - what fabulous photos of your gorgeous party! Are you for hire? Actually we probably don't live too far away :)

  6. P.S. Did you make those gingerbread houses? I haven't seen any like those in stores before.

  7. This is sooo darling Kristi....I have to know... WHERE did you get the Campfire Marshmallow tin man??!! Did you make them???

  8. I first saw my marshmallow snow men in a house that was on a Christmas House Walk. I loved them and searched and searched for them to no avail. I even tracked down the owner of the house on the house walk! More than a year later I walked into a holiday boutique at a charity fashion show and there was the lady who makes them sitting in a booth surrounded by snowmen. I think she thought I was a crazy person when I ran up to her and said, "I've been looking for you for the past year!" She actually lives in the same town as I do. They are my very favorite Christmas decorations. I always let them hang around for awhile after Christmas, even when everything else is put away.

  9. Lovely decorations...I know everyone had a wonderful time!

    What a stunning party Kristi! I'm sure the girls had such a wonderful time. This gets me even more excited about taking my daughter to a friend's house to decorate cookies this coming Wednesday. You are such an inspiration!

    Hi! Came over from "Feathers in my Nest". Love the pictures of your party. I did that one year for my daughter's birthday. This year we are planning to have some friends over for gingerbread houses. Where did you get those adorable aprons? We made those glass ball/paint ornaments last night! Fun!

    Hi Kristi,

    I would really love to get a bunch of the Campfire Marshmallow centerpieces for my house. Can you give me the ladies contact info to have her make some? Even if it is after the holidays. I really love them and want them for my house.



  26. Hi Kristy, What an amazing party! I'd love to have the lady's contact info for the snowman centerpieces also! Those are so adorable! I love this gingerbread party!!! So fun!

  27. This party is amazing! I absolutely love all of the details, especially the marshmallow snowman centerpieces. I was also wondering if there is a way to order them from the woman who makes them.

  28. I am having such fun catching up on your fantastic blog after being gone for a while. It is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

    If it is available, I too would love the contact information for the woman that makes the snowmen. My email address is

  29. This is all gorgeous! I live in IL and I am very interested in the Campfire Marshmallow Snowman for my Christmas breakfast table. Also, can you please advise on where you purchased the striped table cloths. Thanks!
