DIY Christmas Gingerbread house Bowery Beach Farm

Every year it’s the same old story …. I cannot believe it’s almost Christmas! And I’m sure it is the same in your house this time of year. The most magical time of year is always going so fast.

As I do every year I made my gingerbread house. But this year I made it significantly bigger and Houston, we have a problem. The roof broke. But no worries.

A little super glue (we don’t eat our house, its more just to look pretty), more frosting to ‘hide’ the damage, and some string to hold it together while the glue and frosting reset and we were all good to go. again.

Then after spending some quality time with Pinterest I just had to make some of these DIY Snow Globes. Which I was rather satisfied with. 🙂

One of my favorite traditions of the season is to wrap all the gifts. My husband always says he plans to help but seems to ‘disappear’ when it comes time to wrap. But that’s okay. Me and Mr. Bert settle in with a pile of Christmas movies and go to town!

This year I went old school with my wrapping plan. I used brown kraft paper, greens and wild rose hips cut from the garden and some bakers twine to hold it all together.

But the gifts would be nothing without the tree …

A few years ago my mom and I found a local nursery that sells these sparsely branched ‘Charlie Brown’ trees which I just LOVE! Hope you all are finding time this holiday season to enjoy your favorite traditions.
