Come one come all…it’s PARTY TIME! Oh did I have fun with the hot glue gun for this circus shingdig! Once again, I was honored to be asked to decorate for UBC’s Welcome to Children’s Ministry Luncheon! The goal is to incite curiosity, wonder and excitement for the incoming kindergarten and first graders as they Step Right Up to all the fun that awaits them in Children’s Ministry.
The chapel is a large room with incredibly high ceilings. It’s always a challenge to make the space seem intimate and inviting. Without careful planning, a room of that size can easily eat up your decor and all your hard work will go unnoticed.
In order to avoid the dreaded space-eating-decor scenario, I swagged colorful pennant bunting across the room in a random pattern and instantly brought the focus down to where I wanted it. I welcomed all who passed with giant popcorn cups filled with yellow and white balloons and each table was set with a one of a kind circus themed centerpiece. (I’m still picking off hot glue strings and glitter from my hair.) With a church event and a conservative budget, crafting and good ‘ol fashioned sweat equity is always the best bang for the buck. Thanks again UBC, for getting me away from the tile and drywall dust for some fun with glitter and glue and a chance to Step Right Up for some seriously cute fun.
