Gingerbread

Thursday, December 24, 2009

Leslie and I go to the spa at the Renaissance Ross Bridge once a month and spend an afternoon (if you're looking for one in the 'big city', we've been to at least 80% of them and this is the nicest and prettiest one. Promise.).


Plus...Nall curated the art in this hotel also, so on display are photographs by Kathryn Tucker-Windham, quilts by Yvonne Wells, sculpture by Bruce Larson, and Nall's own art:


This week when we went, there were several gingerbread houses in the lobby, decorated by different bakeries and culinary programs with a 'Polar Express' theme - these were three of the best:

This one was done by the Ross Bridge chefs themselves - it was huge!

Leslie just got back from the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina where they hold the National Gingerbread House Competition each year. Some of the ones she took pictures of were just *amazing* and some we couldn't figure out how they didn't win because they seemed so much fun and/or elaborate. The GPI has pics of this year's grand prize winner here and the top ten finalists here. Wow.
