Gingerbread House Workshop

UPDATE:RSVP and prepayment has ended. I have already bought the kits.

Wilton Pre-Baked Gingerbread House Decorating Kit
At this year's NCHHOA Breakfast with Santa, we are offering something extra fun! If you want to join in on a Gingerbread House Workshop, please come to the Breakfast with Santa. The  Naperville Park District used to offer this but with the recent closing of the Barn, I suspect that is why they did not offer it this year.

What is the Gingerbread House Workshop:

- for NCHHOA members only
- prepay for your Wilton gingerbread house kit ahead of time and plan to bring a base for your house as none will be provided for you
- check into Breakfast with Santa and sign in
- grab 1 bowl and pick and choose some extra decorations from our buffet of assorted candies and pretzels
- start assembling your Gingerbread House centerpiece
- if you don't have time to decorate at our BWS event then take your kit home
- RSVP and payment is due by November 5, 2016. The RSVP form is at the bottom. Scroll down. This RSVP form is completely separate than the one for the Breakfast With Santa by the way (as not everyone wants to build a gingerbread house)


How can I help?
Come early and assist with set up. Stay late and help with disposal and trash please. 4-6 Teenagers or Adults are needed.

When do I need to register by?
I will place an order on November 5, 2016 because Wilton told me there is a chance the kit could sell out. If it doesn't sell out, I will place a second order closer to Breakfast With Santa 12/3/16.

I have leftover Halloween Candy, can I donate it for our event?
Yes. Absolutely. Sharing is caring. We will not encourage eating your gingerbread house and its stale candy. Email your donation note to [email protected]

How big is the Gingerbread House Kit?
Measures approximately 5.25 in. wide x 5.75 in. deep x 4.5 in. high. It is a small one and not super big. 

Will there be expired candy present?
There might be some clearance and expired candy present to use for decoration only and not for kids to eat.

How much will a house cost to take home?
I think it'll be $10.00. Just email [email protected] the per unit cost after you fill out the form below requesting a kit to be brought home instead of built at the workshop, at Breakfast With Santa, on December 3rd.

How much will a house cost to build?
 Pay here: $17.00 *if I can get this price down lower. I will absolutely refund the difference to you as I make returns that were unused.

What sorts of candies will be present?
Assorted mini pretzel twists and rods, licorice, gum drops, junior mints, m&ms, peppermints, red-hots, gumballs, etc. I will update this FAQ once I've shopped and gathered all of the candy. There will be no candies with nuts. Some candies are made in the same facility where other candies with nuts are made though.

There will not be nuts present at our NCHHOA event just like at Fall Fest. As always make sure to use extra caution when you are at any Elementary School cafeteria as many surfaces are cross contaminated with typical allergens like nuts due the nature of it being a school.

Gingerbread House Workshop Payment to be completed with the form

Only those who pre-pay for the gingerbread house, will be able to pick up their kit(s) at the check in table at Breakfast with Santa on 12/3/16 at 10:00 am. Each kit will have a copy of your form printed and taped to the box.

Please make sure you filled out the order form for your Gingerbread House(s) here or the same exact link is on the Payments tab too. If you want a kit to take home, please email [email protected] and I'll get you pricing as I think it'll be $10.00 but I don't know with s&h/ taxes yet.
UPDATE:RSVP and prepayment has ended. I have already bought the kits.
