Boston Christmas events are a heartwarming way of bringing in the season, and our Gingerbread House Soiree is hosted in that spirit. Come to the city’s charming historic district and spend time with loved ones in a warm, grand turn-of-the century mansion designed by architect Ogden Codman for a one-of-a-kind holiday event experience.

For over a century, this beautiful mansion and former luxury hotel on Beacon Street has been appreciated by countless visitors. Fittingly, Hampshire House is now one of Boston’s most popular special event destinations. And even though its purpose has changed throughout these many years, this elegant space has always been a place to gather and celebrate life’s special moments.

On Saturday, November 30, 2019 and Saturday, December 7, 2019 between 7:00pm and 11:00pm, the Hampshire House is hosting our fun adults-only Gingerbread House Soiree. Mark your calendars and get your event tickets now to ensure your spot at this limited attendance special event. All attendees must be 21 years old or older.

Here are only some of the delightful reasons to attend:

Discover Your Hidden Gingerbread Decorating Talents

Let your creative side run free as you get your very own gingerbread house to decorate from scratch. There are no decorating rules, and you and your companions can decorate however you please. If you do want some tips, Corporate Swiss Chef Markus Ripperger is going to be on-hand to give his professional decorating pointers. Either way, you’re bound to create a charming holiday centerpiece for your home.

We supply the gingerbread house, a candy buffet with plenty of sweet treat variety and lots of icing for creating those unique house accents. You also receive a souvenir apron to take home. Each time you display your decorated gingerbread house, you may find yourself remembering all the fun you had participating in this event.

Enjoy Adult Refreshments as You Decorate and Mingle

Decorate your gingerbread house as you relax and enjoy any of our seasonal cocktails. This event has a two-drink maximum and our cocktail selection includes our special Hampshire House Mulled Wine, a blend of red wine and warm spices garnished with orange. Or perhaps you’ll enjoy Spiked Hot Cocoa made with hot cocoa, butterscotch schnapps, Malibu rum, and whipped cream. Non-alcoholic beverages are also available.

Delicious treats for you to snack on during your house decorating task are provided by our butler-passed hors d’oeuvres. These tasty bites feature fine dining combinations that tantalize your taste buds.

Live Music Entertainment

Tap your feet or hum along with the beat of the live musical entertainment. Music uplifts the spirit and live musicians help make the holiday atmosphere come alive with the sounds of the season.

Ideal for Date Night or Me Time

For couples, our Gingerbread House Soiree is the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time together doing a unique activity with a holiday theme. Make it a date night that you and your partner will always remember. Bring another couple along to share in the fun.

Family groups and friends are welcome to indulge in some much-deserved “me” time in a fun atmosphere among other adults. If you have never been to the Hampshire House, or if it’s been a while since your last visit, this festive evening is a great way to experience one of Boston’s most iconic event spaces.
