Team Members from departments across Universal’s Aventura Hotel went head-to-head in this year’s Gingerbread House Decorating contest. We stopped by to look at all of the entries.
Team Member Gingerbread House Decorating Contest
All of the houses were put on display for guests to not only view, but also vote on. A ballot box on the table encouraged guest to submit their vote on their favorite gingerbread house display. The one rule? All decorations must be edible.
Stewarding kept things simple and sweet with a classic gingerbread house design, trimmed with candies.
The HR/Storeroom went for a galactic theme. “AVH Universe” is written along the galaxy base. It’s certainly the most unique creation of the bunch.
We’d happily live in the house made by the Culinary team. The front yard is beautiful, with detailed trees and grass. The home itself is two floors, with stained glass windows. Through the windows, you can see Christmas gifts, a holiday feast, and more.
Housekeeping gave more than just a house — they created a whole gingerbread village! With varying style homes, gingerbread friends in front of massive Christmas trees, a firepit, and a fence made of chocolate-covered pretzels, this one is truly impressive.
The Front Office made their very own Barbie Dreamhouse. Like Barbie herself, the accessories are just as important as the home
Parked out front is a pink and white camper van for any of Barbie’s weekend getaways.
The Barbie head lake may be the best part of the whole display.
Engineering went for a true snow-free Florida Christmas! The candy cane palm tree and the tiny candy car in the front yard really make it for us.
The gingerbread house by Events/Finance is another classic design. The bubblegum balls and crushed candy canes offer a nice pop of color.
Outlets used a unique mixture of candies and treats to make their house. We like that the black roof stands out among all of the other creations.
