Thanksgiving Kids Table

Do you remember the fun that you had sitting with all of your cousins and other young family members at the kid's table? The kid's table was the most fun place to be on Thanksgiving day. Glory Haus wants to help you make your Thanksgiving kids table even more fun and adorable this year.


First, print this activity filled place mat off for all your little guests. This is not your ordinary placemat, it has games and Thanksgiving activities.


Then, make these handy pilgrim hat crayon holders for each place setting. 
Simply turn a black paper part cup upside down and cut out the bottom with a knife.




Then, tape a strip of white paper around the top rim of your cup. (which is actually the bottom of your hat)









 Next cut a small square out of some yellow or gold paper.then cut another small square out of your square to create the buckle. Now tape this on to the cup.








Lastly, cut out a circle that is larger than the opening of the cup and hot glue around the edge to create the brim of your hat.








To create this turkey silverware holder centerpiece you will need a Styrofoam pumpkin from any craft store. Wrap a colorful napkin around all pieces of the silverware and tie with twine. Then simply stick down into the styrofoam. You can draw your own turkey, or use this template to cut out of scrapbook paper and attach with a hot glue gun to the front of the pumpkin




The last fun idea for this project was making slip covers out of our Glory Haus tea towels. Just attach strips of ribbon with a safety pin to the bottom side of the towel. Then, fold over the top of the chair and tie on like a regular slip cover. 








Follow these easy steps to make your kids Thanksgiving fabulous!! We hope you have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!!

Trick-or Treat station

Do you hate the thought of knowing that trick-or-treaters are coming to your door, but since you are out with you own children there is nobody there to greet your spooky little guests? Then try this adorable trick-or-treat station!!

This is quick, simple and really inexpensive. We used things that we already had laying around the house. 

First, simply copy and paste this image onto a document, print it out, and place into any 8x10 frame.



Next, to make our adorable mason jar mummy, simply wrap jars with gauze, or tissue paper and attach googley eyes with a dab of hot glue. 






Add a battery  operated tea light so that your mummy will flicker in the night. 

Lastly, add your favorite Glory Haus Products to make your station complete!!

All Things Fall

Fall is finally here!! It’s time to sit around the fire pit, sip on cider, dig out those warm fuzzy sweaters from the back of the closet and pick the best pumpkin in the patch. The cool crisp air and the smell of our favorite pumpkin spice candle just makes us want to “cozy up” our lives.  Something about fall just puts everyone in the mood to be crafty, and fashionable.

Our Glory Haus staff has definitely  caught the fall itch!! Here is a picture of our entry way.









And there is always a line at the coffee maker.




We want to help you get fall off to a great start. We will be doing  a blog series every Friday to help satisfy your sudden urge to decorate every inch of your house with pumpkins, gourds and burlap.  So put on your favorite pair of riding boots and warm sock and let’s get started!!

Christie and Ricky's Shower


"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.




Christie and Rickys Wedding Shower

Here at Glory Haus, we love to celebrate. We celebrate birthdays, graduations, anniversaries and more. But, we especially love to celebrate weddings, because marriage is the perfect picture of Gods love for His people. That is why we were so happy when, Christie, who works in our personalization department married her true love, Ricky. We celebrated her new marriage recently with an Italian themed shower and we would love to share some of our ideas with you for your next party or event.





We decorated a portion of the main wall to be the focal point of the shower. We attached brown packaging paper on the wall, then hung a Glory Haus burlap lovebanner at the top



Next, we hung heart garland on either side to help frame the brown paper. We made the garland by simply cutting heart shapes out of red poster board and hot gluing twine to the back of each heart.         


We hung an old chalkboard in the center of the brown paper. Then, we wrote the couples name in a cute font. 

         


To complete the look we drew a cute, romantic doodle border around the chalkboard onto the brown package paper.
                                                                      



After that, we placed a table beneath the chalk board to create a space for desserts. To decorate this table we created a Wishes and Wisdomjar. Guests were asked to write well wishes, or words of wisdom for the couple on small pieces of card stock, and place in the jar for Christie and Ricky to take home and keep as a memento from the day. Also, just for fun, we filled a large clear bowl with ring pops for guests.

 
  


For tables, we used red gingham table cloths. To go with our Italian theme, we placed different kids of pastas in mason jars and combined them in the middle of the table with flowers and large vintage looking tomato sauce cans.

 

We also placed small chalkboards with scripture verses about love on each table.



Christie and Rickys shower turned out beautifully. The decorations, and the smell of delicious lasagna in the air made our Glory Haus lunchroom feel like a quaint restaurant on the streets of Italy. We had a wonderful time celebrating Christie and Rickys union. We prayed over the the newlyweds, and ask God to pour out His blessings and mercies upon their new family. Please join us in keeping this couple in your prayers.
