I bought inexpensive aprons and had each girls name embroidered on and then just embellished with whimsical trims. They looked ADORABLE in them and it was a nice little keepsake for them to take home.
I purchased prebuilt gingerbread houses from Target so that each girl could get right to work decorating the houses and having fun....at this age (or any age) it is no fun trying to get the houses set up. I filled up baking cups with an assortment of candy and bought mini squeeze bottles from think garnish. The wrapper is included in my printable set and could be adapted to larger bottles.
And of course there were a few desserts.....I made cupcakes with gingerbread peeps on top and my awesome sister made fabulous gingerbread men and houses and also peppermint brownie pops. YUM!
And of course there must be milk to wash it down!
During story time we set up a little boxed lunch for the girls.
Some of the cuteness......
How sweet are these girls?!
This whole printable set (or just the invitation) is now available in my shop! It is a great excuse to gather a few buddies for the holidays!
