Camp Good Grief’s Gingerbread Village, Part 1
All December long I was yearning to view this gingerbread display at the Memphis Botanic Gardens, but other things seem to come up. I finally got the chance during the very last week (I sorta played hooky from work…..shhhh!). Now I wish two things happened: 1) I had played hooky gone sooner, 2) I had gotten around to posting this weeks ago. The amount of
detail and sweet treats that went into this village is unbelievable.

If I had to guess, the village was displayed on a 9′ x 12′ table

This post will only cover these 3 structures (in order)
(1) “Nita and Zita’s Gingerbread and Breakfast”
Created by Mary Norman-Jungklas
The biggest house in the entire “village”

I could go for some pretzels right about now :p
Beautiful shades of pastel colors
Vanilla ice cream, anyone?

Where else would you see a chimney like this plus Shredded Wheat roof?
Stay tuned for the rest of the village (Part 2).
