Instead of gingerbread houses- Turn ice cream cones into christmas trees & decorate. Much easier for kids! Or you could add a tree by your gingerbread house. I don't think I'd do the cookie inside, or the lollipop stick ;) just a nice tree.
Amanda's Parties To Go - Snowman punch bowl idea. Just a large decorative fish bowl on a nice serving tray, surrounded by marshmallows and filled with your favorite holiday eggnog or winter drink recipe!
For hot chocolate ~ marshmallows dipped in chocolate, rolled in sugar and speared with a peppermint stick. I would dip them in the chocolate and roll them in the crushed peppermint instead of the sugar.
