Gingerbread House Decorating Party Inspiration Board

Here is an inspiration board which is sure to put you in a festive mood in the run up to Christmas. A Gingerbread House Decorating Party is fun for all ages and is a great way to start the festive season. It is best to keep the numbers small so that all the guests have room to sit at the table with their own work station. To keep things simple and baking to a minimum give each guest a pre-assembled graham cracker house or pre-baked gingerbread house cookies and gingerbread men to decorate. Supply each guest with an filled icing bag and decorate the table with a selection of sweets and sprinkles in little bowls.
