Kids Thanksgiving Table

Happy Thanksgiving week!! Today I want to share a super easy kids Thanksgiving table that you can quickly put together before your guests arrive. For this table I used coloring books as the place settings instead of plates. This way the kids can sit down and color while waiting for their food.

 I found these coloring/activity books in the Target dollar section a little while back so if you can't find them anymore you can print out free coloring pages found online and make your own book. I used some washi tape to stick the box of crayons onto the book.

I also used washi tape to stick the straw to milk bottles and stuck a cute little turkey die cut to them. I embellished each spoon with some polka dot ribbon.

Hope my kids Thanksgiving table has inspired you to create your own on Thanksgiving Day for the kids to enjoy. Have you began any Thanksgiving prep yet?

I got to use my Sizzix Big Shot for a lot of the paper decorations and favors. I love how everything turned out.

I mean look at this banner how cute is it and it isn't scary at all perfect for the little kiddos. To make the banner I used the Witch with Broom, Pumpkins with Crow and Leaves, and Spider dies.

 The cupcakes were placed in these adorable spider leg stands and topped with a cupcake topper that I made using some black yarn and phrases that I cut out from the Halloween backgrounds embossing folders.

The bottle labels were made using the Halloween set debossing folders. I added a little black ink to the folder before placing the paper so it would add a bit of a shadow.

Here are some things to do so your guest can have fun
  • Paint or carve pumpkins
  • Costume contest
  • Cupcake eating contest (hands behind their backs)
  • Dance contest
  • Crafts (draw haunted house, Frankenstein puppet)

I hope our kid friendly Halloween party has inspired you to have you own party.

Sizzix DIY Halloween Treat Box

Happy October, hard to believe it is almost Halloween already. Today I am sharing a Halloween treat box perfect for party favors, my son will be taking these to his class party and he is just so excited to hand them out. 

Making this box was so easy with the help of my Sizzix Big Shot. It easily fit a a pack of fruit gummies, a pencil, and a cute little bat ring.

For this project, you will need the Sizzix Big Shot, cardstock paper, ribbon, hot glue gun, 3D foam stickers and the following dies:

First, you will cut out 2 pieces using the Sizzix Movers and Shapers box. Next you will put one at a time in the embossing folder with all the tabs folded in, pass that through the Big Shot once. 
Then you will glue your 2 embossed pieces together to form your box. I also cut out a Trick or Treat saying with the Halloween Shadows Strip die, added some 3D foam stickers to it to give some dimension and finally top it off with a neon green bow.

Look at the awesome texture that the embossing folders give it, seriously my favorite part!

I just love Halloween we still have our annual Halloween party to do plus some to attend. Do you have a Halloween party you're hosting or parties that you plan to attend?

Hostess Gift Idea

Today I am sharing a cute and simple way of putting together a hostess gift. I have a couple of these drink holders stored away because I knew someday I would need them for something and here is one way of re-purposing them.

Hostess Gift Idea via Creativities Galore

I gathered my supplies: a drink holder, chalkboard paint, and my painting brush 
I did a couple of coats until it was just right then in order to fit the notepad I wanted to gift I had to unstick one of the tabs and re-position it, I just hot glued it in its new place.

Then the really fun part began putting it all together. With chalk I wrote the hostess' initial to add a personal touch, as for the gifts I included things from the Target dollar section (that spot gets me every time). I also added some crinkled paper that I already had on hand. I love how it turned out so simple and cute. A gift your hostess is sure to love.

Football Party

It's that time of year again, football season!!!! What a better way to enjoy the game then with a party. Good food, good company, and some cute decorations are what you need to bring it all together. Here are some ideas to set up your own football party on game day.

Putting a table together with just a couple of desserts or food items makes it less of a hassle so you can enjoy the game too. The artificial turf was perfect because it allowed me to use footballs in many different ways. The banner is available in our shop.
Creativities Galore:: Football PartyFootball bowls, boxes, and little toy balls were a cute addition to the table.
Creativities Galore:: Football shape cookies and football pudding cups
Football cookies were a must, found these at Walmart. I also painted some white laces to the front of chocolate pudding cups.
