Holiday Experiences (in Gingerbread)


There are many holiday-themed activations this time of year. With family visits and time spent with loved ones, a special experience can make 2016's holiday season stand out. How about a couple ideas of the Gingerbread variety? 

First, let's visit the desert. How much material does it take to create a larger-than-life Gingerbread house? Our friends at The Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain have the answer: 400 pounds of honey, 856 pounds of sugar, 350 pounds of flour, 100 pounds of ginger powder, 50 pounds of cinnamon, 250 eggs and 10 pounds of nutmeg! With it’s own working fireplace and dining room furniture, guests are flocking to this desert oasis for a one-of-a-kind dining experience. Those lucky enough to secure a reservation are able to host up to 6 people in the mega-sized house.

While tourists flock to New York City for the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center, this year a new attraction garnered quite a bit of attention. In Madison Square Park, guests engaged in an interactive experience on Gingerbread Boulevard. Lined with life-sized gingerbread houses, guests could virtually decorate a Christmas tree or create a marshmallow snowman.

Hope these ideas inspire your own Gingerbread-flavored experiences!

Happy Holidays!
