Over 200 people attended the Seton Village Gingerbread House Making Party this past Sunday, December 4th. “We were thrilled that this popular event was so well attended and could be held indoors at the Vincent Monella Community Center in the middle of Seton Village,” says Sally Unsworth, NPP Coordinator, “I think I may have experienced cuteness overload at one point as the big smiles and holiday cheer were overflowing all over the room.”

The event was sponsored by Seton Village NPP and Jacqueline Hunter from SOMA Hearth Realty Group. “I was delighted to sponsor this family-friendly event right in my neighborhood,” says Jacqui Hunter. “This is such a wonderful community and it was great to see so many people from all ages out and enjoying being together again. I was so impressed by the creativity and hard work everyone put into their house designs. It was difficult to select the winners with so much competition.” In addition to Jacqui, other gingerbread judges included Julie China of Ideaspace Architecture + Design, local artist and author Elly Lonon, and Village President Sheena Collum.

With over 45 submissions, the prize categories and winning Gingerbread Houses designs include:
