Gingerbread Christmas Party Ideas
Christmas parties don’t have to be elaborate. Simple parties with cute Gingerbread Village themed party-ware and handcrafted decor is all you need to create a festive Gingerbread themed tablescape and party table. I started my decorating with a small table for sweets and a table for the kids to craft and eat.
I added small Gingerbread Village Picks to my faux cake. Don’t they look like they are in snow?
I altered a Gingerbread Tag in Cricut Design Space and made toppers for my Candy Apples. I’m excited to share how you can make these too in just a few steps!

Cut the background tag out of the Burlap Paper.
Because of the thickness of the burlap, I used the custom setting and selected the Chipboard Light setting, which worked great.
Next, cut the second image on white card-stock and glue it onto the burlap tag.
Simply put the straws through the holes on the tags and you have adorable little Gingerbread Men for your apples or even drinking straws!
I used the Gingerbread Man design to make the garland, the Honeycomb balls remind me of gum drops!
I also cut extra Gingerbread Men for the kids to decorate their own little Gingerbread Men.
I set out mini buckets of buttons for the kids to add to the little men.
I love no mess projects for the kids. Clear glue and buttons are that’s needed to make custom Gingerbread Men. These make great gift tags for large gifts or even ornaments for a tree!
I used the Gingerbread Village Gift Wrap for the table runner and set out the adorable Gingerbread house plates and napkins.
Themed treat bags are perfect for wrapping up their little masterpiece Gingerbread to take home.
And that’s it! A super simple and fun Gingerbread Christmas Party for the kids!
