Thank you for sponsoring this post, Walmart+.
Favorite Holiday Tradition
For as long as I can remember (even while in college!) my sister and I have been decorating gingerbread houses each holiday season. It’s one of our favorite things to do each year and always look forward to it! We find a good gingerbread kit and stock up on all our favorite candies and go for it! Some years they turn out spectacular and some years they are a complete and utter disaster – like the year we tried to bake our own gingerbread, ha. Regardless it’s always a GREAT time.
Gingerbread House Kit
We’ve been trying to find a time to get together this year and last week on a total whim we made it happen! After chatting about a date and time I quickly put together a Walmart+ order! It couldn’t have been easier. I knew I wouldn’t have time to get to the store in between deadlines and shoots, so I just placed a giant order of candy, sprinkles, peppermints, and called it a day! A few days later all of our ingredients for a Gingerbread Extravaganza had arrived at my door with little to no work!
If you are unfamiliar, Walmart+ is a membership at $98 per year, or $12.95 per month. And it truly will revolutionize the way you shop in store, online, for groceries, and more.
I’ve been such a fan of Walmart+ (see here, here, & here for proof!), and have been using this membership for a while now… and honestly, it’s fantastic! Not only am I constantly scooping up baking goods, but I’m also constantly popping clothing items into my cart as well. This is my favorite brand!
Gingerbread House Decorating Kit
Even though each year is really so fun, this year was honestly our best yet! My niece is at the perfect age where she is interested in EVERYTHING and wants to participate. We could not stop laughing as she quite literally chucked sprinkles all over my sister’s freshly cleaned kitchen. It was just one of those special Christmas memories I never want to forget.
I love utilizing this membership to scoop up those items I need quickly that may take a little longer to arrive; if you are in a SUPER rush, you can also use the mobile scan & go benefit through Walmart+ and checkout while you shop in store, which is awesome when you are trying to get to your sister’s house before nap time!
If you haven’t yet decorated gingerbread houses this season, let this be your sign to add all these goodies to your shopping list! It’s a relatively inexpensive Christmas craft, this kit is was only $5! Such a fun activity to do at a girls’ night over festive cocktails or an afternoon with your best littles.
These photos are definitely going in the albums! 😉
