Men And Women

plus a few extra just in case. Gather items that can be used to
decorate the gingerbread men such as buttons, ribbons, string, frosting
and candies. Buy or prepare plenty of frosting to be used to stick
the items to the cookies. Have each male guest decorate a
gingerbread bride and have each female guest decorate a gingerbread
groom. Let the bride pick the best "groom" and vice
versa - give the winners a prize, then let everyone eat their artwork.

and have the guests create bride and groom potato heads. Give a
prize for the best "bride" and the best "groom".

lips on the bride and groom. The guest to get closest to the mouth
wins. In the event of a tie pick the guy who got closest to the
bride's lips or the gal who got closest to the groom's lips, or give a
