2. Create your guest list with an RSVP date. Decide if you want just all women, or if children and spouses are included. If you invite couples or families, make sure they tell you how many houses they would like to decorate, because not all couples will want to decorate a house together. This is what makes the guest list important. Start your guest list with a small number of people, and see if it grows. You can always add more people later. Requesting that they RSVP by a certain date is of extreme importance. You need to have enough time to bake all the houses, so the sooner you know how many you need, the better.
8. Make your royal icing the day of the party. Royal icing is not something you want to make ahead of time when dealing with gingerbread houses. The longer it sits, the softer it becomes and doesn't do a good job of holding onto the candy. You can make it about an hour before your party, and then put it into the decorating bags. Just cover the tips with a damp towel to keep the icing from drying out.

French Country Decorating Ideas
Another area that is generally skipped is the space above your kitchen cupboards. Try adding some traditional French kitchen ware and other ceramic or terracotta jars or urns. And a French country kitchen would not be complete without some assortment of copper pots and utensils.

Usually wooden surrounds can be supplied in Pine, Oak, Mahogany, Cherry, Maple, Beech, Butternut, Choi, Poplar, Basswood...in fact, pretty much any wood you specify. Natural wood is the best choice whether you want an ornate carved fireplace surround or something simple and colonial in style.

Most of us have at least some type of look or style we'd like for our front porch: country, Victorian, Southern, contemporary, southwestern, Tuscan, eclectic or even a sports theme. Or perhaps you want a seasonal look depending on the time of year - spring or fall decorating, for example. Some prefer, especially those along the coast, a nautical look. Others, like in the southwest, might prefer a western theme. This will help determine the items you want to display on your porch. Look at garage sales, flea markets, your dollar store, or a thrift shop to find items like pictures for your wall, furniture, tables or other charming knick knacks to carry out your theme. Chances are you have some items in your home already that you can re-purpose for your porch.Quick Front Porch Decorating Guide - The Key to Easy Decorating Ideas!

Some of the important aspects to keep in mind when thinking of galley kitchen ideas, is the width of the aisle, the lighting, and the storage. when possible. If you can hide the fridge or dishwasher behind a cabinetry panel, this will give the room a tidy appearance. Other tips to use for kitchen remodel ideas are open shelving,a large pass-through window, and light colored cabinets all work to create an airy, open concept.
To avoid having to deal with too much traffic with not enough room, try making sure you can have four to six feet of aisle space. If you place the sink and refrigerator on one wall, and then the range opposite it on the other side, this will allow the room to be evenly spaced out and not look over crowded. You could even add an island or peninsula off the end of one counter which will aid in allowing a place for quick eat in meals.

Plants and Flowers
Candles are actually the traditional decorations for fireplace mantels. Back then, they didn't have electric lights and had to use candles for light in the evening. It was the perfect place to situate candles, which can be taken to the room at bedtime.

1) Pick a great quilt or comforter to start your theme. There are tons of cute bedspreads so let your little girl pick her favorite!
3) Purchase some white picket fencing. I picked up some unfinished pickets and sprayed them white. You can then attach them to the wall. I nailed mine right to the wall with a nail gun, but you could use picture hangers or any kind of wall adhesive.
