No Gingerbread theme party would be complete if we didn’t reference one of my all time favorite children’s books. It is the perfect focal point for a school holiday party!

PIP’s Holiday Tip – The holiday season can be stressful.  Remember to exercise, eat healthy (avoid sugars as much as possible), drink plenty of water, and take a deep breath whenever you feel yourself starting to stress or spin out of control. Yoga really does help!

Party Hearty!
