Gingerbread Houses

What fun we had this past Saturday....a tea room full of moms and daughters each working together as a team to decorate a Gingerbread House. It was a delight to see the many creative ideas that were swirling around the room. These photos show a sampling of the houses that were crafted that day. Mini pretzels were used as a fence around the house. And tree-shaped pretzels adorn the yard of one of the other houses. Wheat Thins became shingles and M & M's evolved into a path to the door, a mini candy bar. Why, even Santa is atop one of the houses, with a candy bar sleigh and candy cane runners. How clever - no two houses alike! After the decorating project, we had a very simple tea party with hot chocolate and gingerbread.
