I was invited to Attend the 4th Annual Ivory Homes Gingerbread House Blogger Event.  I had a blast working with Ivory Homes and other bloggers to build Gingerbread Houses that would be auctioned off to benefit Guadalupe School.  


I thought this house was adorable!  It was the gingerbread house that 3rd and 5th graders from Guadalupe School Built.  I thought it turned out fabulous.  I loved all the bright colors!


We were spoiled at this event with lots of different delicious treats.  The Gingerbread Cupcakes were my favorite!  I also highly appreciated the Hot Chocolate because its really cold in Utah! 🙂
 We drew sticks to decide which group we were in and we immediately went to work collecting the candy that we would use to decorate our home.  This instantly became crazy fun as 40 bloggers rushed to the table to get the perfect gingerbread decorating candy.
There were 6 different houses that were decorated for this event.  I thought this was incredibly fun because each house was one of the layouts that Ivory Homes builds.  We received our house as well as the plans to help us in designing the perfect house.  We decorated the Ivory Homes Melbourne house. Here is our house before:  
 Here were are putting on hundreds of little silver beads on our scalloped room.  Yes, it is as hard as it looks! 🙂
Here is our completed house from each angle.  I thought that we did pretty good!   We got SECOND place! 🙂  It came down to the toss of a coin. 🙂
 Here are the six blogger Gingerbread houses. I loved how they each turned out different, but completely unique and awesome.  The one on the top was the winner.  

I had such a wonderful time and am so excited to be able to support this wonderful event!  Ivory Homes was so kind to send us off with this adorable swag!  Thanks for a great event!
