Mother/Daughter Gingerbreatd Decorating Shindig!

Yesterday afternoon my daughters and I hosted a Mother/Daughter gingerbread decorating party.  It was a perfect afternoon of Christmas music, gingerbread, desserts, hot cocoa and FRIENDS!  I really did love this party so much that I may turn it into a yearly tradition!  :)
 
As always, gotta give a big thank you to AMANDAS PARTIES TO GO.  All the printable decorations you see came from her shop.  I just love throwing a party when I get to use her beautiful designs!!!
 
Sit back with a cup of hot cocoa and get ready to see lots of red and green!! 
Here is my mama and me gingerbread decorating par-teeeee!
 
 
The reindeer went on strike this week.  Demanding they get paid more $$ or they were gonna walk out (or unionize).  I think Santa was trying to show them "I'll do it myself if I have to".






Cake pops.  Its not a party without these!!
 
Its also not a CHRISTMAS party without a HOT COCOA BAR!!!   


 How cute are these travel mugs!?!  I found them at the Dollar Tree and thought they'd be perfect for the children to drink out of. (any cup with a top on it is always a good idea with little clumsy hands)  The best part about these mugs is they have an interchangeable insert that allows you to totally customize.   I used the patterned paper from Amanda's Christmas set so they would coordinate with the table. LOVE.  And then the adults just drank out of boring ol' white mugs. lol (we never get to have any fun!!)

 
 
 
 
 
OHHHHHH-ME-GAAAWWWWSH!!!!  I found THIS crockpot hot cocoa recipe online and whoa.  It was gooooooood.  I don't think I'll ever be able to make that packet hot chocolate again! ;)
actually I will because its easier....
 
 
It was sooo rich and creamy and just GOOD!  I used a big spoon/dipper thingy to serve it.

 Oh, and then we made it eeeeeven better by adding "toppers".  I mean really?!!?

 

 
Toppers included...Andes mints, peppermints, marshmallows, chocolate chips and m&ms.  I also had peppermint sticks to stir, cinnamon, sugar, and more chocolate. lol (I don't normally eat like this y'all!)
 
 



 


 
Chocolate dippers.
(just incase it wasn't chocolate-y enough for you, here's some more chocolate)
 
 
 

 Y'all got a cavity just by looking at these pictures.  I'm sure of it.
 
 On to the gingerbread houses.



 
Each little girl got their own apron (sorry moms, none for y'all!).  I used a heat press to add the adorable gingerbread man graphic from Amanda's Christmas set .  These turned out sooo cute and the girls loved them.
 
 
I asked every guest to bring a bag or two of candy to share for the decorating.  We ended up with a great assortment.

 
 
Once the guests arrived they were eager to get started. 
 
Let the chaos begin!!!!
 

 



Check out this glorious gem my girls and I created!!
 
We were proud.  ;)
 
 
After we were finished with the houses the kids chugged their hot chocolate and ran around my house like crazy people, stopping every few minutes to grab another sweet thing from the table. ;)  
 

 
 Remember these guys?  Yeah well, sadly they all got beheaded.  Most even lost their legs.  I can't understand why children want to eat gumpaste figurines. but they DO!  Thank God for pictures because that is all that's left of these cuties.


 

Once it was time for all the kiddos to go home I made sure they took a mini bottle of Sixlets with them. You  know, just in case they didn't get enough sugar at my house.   hehehe evil laugh


 How adorable are these girls!?!!?

  19. It is never a good idea to try to take on a big electrical problem by yourself because you will often find that you get in over your head and may even create more problems than you fix. Hiring a professional electrician is the best choice when it comes to maintaining and repairing your parking lot lights.
