The Candy Cottage – No Bake Gingerbread Houses Giveaway

 This giveaway is closed. Congratulations to Amy and Brenda!

The Candy Cottage

A few months ago, I came across The Candy Cottage in my FamilyFun magazine and knew I had to have them.  I love to decorate gingerbread houses with my kids, but if you are like me, you may not have the time or skill to make them from scratch.  Seriously, that is a lot of work!

The two moms who started The Candy Cottage had the same idea in mind and turned the classic gingerbread house into a modern,  reusable item for year-round family fun.  That’s right…you can decorate them for any and everything you have in mind.

Rock it for the holidays…

The Candy Cottage Christmas Cottage

The Candy Cottage Valentine's Day Cottage

The Candy Cottage Party Pack Easter Cottage

The Candy Cottage Happy Birthday Cottage

As a  special birthday centerpiece…

The Candy Cottage Party Pack Barn Cottage

Or anytime the kids are bored.

After the fun is over, clean them up and store them away!

They come in two sizes; the Original, 14″ wide and almost 10″ tall for family decorating and the Party Pack, four 6″ X 8″ houses where everyone can decorate their own.  I ordered the party pack and couldn’t wait for them to arrive…I mean, my boys couldn’t wait. They assemble easily and the dreaded ‘house collapse’ is not on the list.  They are so sturdy, even when frosting and goodies are piled on.

The Candy Cottage Thanksgiving cabin

How do I know? I created a Thanksgiving kids’ table where the highlight is creating log cabins. Even with tons of frosting and pretzel rods, it is still standing strong.  That is always number one in my book. (PS…if you would like to see the full shoot, head over to The Celebration Shoppe).

Please visit The Candy Cottage for more decorating ideas and to order your own.  Unless you have the pleasure of passing through Monroe or heading to Leavenworth for the holidays, these are the only retail places (for now) in our area that carry them.

Or…you can enter to win your own! The lovely folks at The Candy Cottage are graciously giving away an Original and a Party Pack to our readers.  All you have to do is leave a comment here on which one you would like to win, the Original or a Party Pack, and we will pick one comment of each size to win.  Good luck!

This giveaway ends next Wednesday, December 4th at 11:59 p.m. PT.  Comments received after the deadline will be invalid.  Open to US residents only.  Winners will be drawn via Random.org, notified by the email in their profile and announced on this post.   Please note that winners will have 48 hours to respond to the email for verification or alternates will be drawn.

    Our family would love the party pack! We celebrate the magic of every holiday with love and art as our jumping off point! Decorating houses for Valentine’s Day, a house for Bob our mischievous leprechaun, a sweet spring cottage for my favorite holiday- Easter, a creepy mansion for all of the goblins, and then all of the elves decorate their own for Christmas! In our home we strive to continue the magic of growing up! The excitement, the mystery, and most of all, the hope of all things wonderful!
    Merry Christmas everyone!

    I would love the party pack! This is a fantastic idea, much better than trying to balance grahm crackers or gingerbread onto milk cartons!!

    I would love to win the party pack of the Candy Cottages!! We are a family of 5 and even my older kids still like to decorate a gingerbread house but it’s such a waste because no one likes gingerbread. I can see us using these for all of the holidays! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂
