This year, I’;m going to have a Gingerbread House Decorating Party instead of our annual Christmas Cookie Decorating party. After 16 years of throwing the best Christmas Cookie Decorating Party, it’;s time to shake things up!

I’;ve partnered up with?Cost Plus World Market this year to create this fun holiday tradition that is going on its 16th year! I was able to find everything I needed to freshen up my holiday decorations and I found easy pre-built gingerbread houses!

Like you, we have created many holiday traditions, but the two that stand out the most is our Christmas tree tailgater and our Cookie Decorating party.??

When my son was 3, I invited 3 of my best friends who had children around the same age to join us for an afternoon playdate of decorating Christmas cookies. There were sprinklescustomized baby gifts, candies, and frosting everywhere, not to mention some very happy kids. We all had such a good time, we just kept gathering year after year, and eventually including the fathers too. Families got bigger, kids got older and other items like cupcakes and gingerbread houses were added for more fun. It’;s always potluck style, so we are well fed and entertained. The perfect combination for holiday traditions that last.

This year, with the help of Cost Plus World Market, I am using the pre-built gingerbread houses and sprucing up the table.

With many of the kids in college now, they enjoy the challenge of creating the best-decorated gingerbread house. Maybe I’;ll even hold a contest to inspire some creative competition.?

Another perk with the kids getting older, I can create an easy and stylish centerpiece that can stay throughout the season.?

Like all my centerpieces, I keep them simple, grouping like items together for a seasonal look.

A seasonal centerpiece will set the tone. Sure you could just sit the kids around the table with a bunch of supplies, but wouldn’;t you like it to make it special and festive? I found all of these items at my Vancouver Washington?local Cost Plus World Market.


It literally took me about 5 minutes.

By having everything accessible and ready to go, your party guests can start decorating whenever the creativity hits!

When the party is over, all you have to do is clean up the gingerbread house items and leave your beautiful holiday centerpiece to enjoy!

Holiday entertaining can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’;t have to be. Break it down into the following steps.

Choose a theme and go for it! Keep in mind that it’;s about creating memories, not perfection!
