Construct a mini gingerbread house for each guest, attached to a cardboard base with icing. Make it the centerpiece of each place setting.

To continue the theme, you can also add a gingerbread man or woman for each guest to eat or use for decorating.
To create this look, search your favorite vintage stores for glassware and dessert plates with pink or gold detailing. Use a basic white dinner plate on the bottom of every place setting.
