We have another brand new hen party idea here at Glam Hatters. Book a Glitter Station with us and watch your party sparkle!
Book a glitter station with Glam Hatters and our glitter artists will bring the highest quality sparkles to your party.
Your Glitter Artist takes 15 minutes to set up and once set up you can choose your desired looks from inspiration we provide. From glitter roots to glitter delecotage we can create looks in a variety of colours and textures. We need a table and high bar stall or chair to be provided and we bring a ring light with us so you can have fun taking selfies! This also adds a fun element while the rest of the party are getting glittered.
Each look takes approx 3-5 mins (depending on what you would like) and in a one hour booking your artist can do groups of 12-15 hens. If there are less girls in your group you can go all out and have multiple areas glittered!
All the glitter we use is cruelty free, vegan, biodegradable and sourced in UK. We also have latex free glue for anyone who has allergies.
Q&A with our Glam Hatter Glitter Queen.
Q. How did you come to be a glitter queen?
A. Make-up has always been such a creative outlet for me and with glitter you get to involve everyone so it’s double the fun. Guys, girls, old and young – it just simply works for anyone, everyone and at any time of year. Seeing people’s faces light up post-glittering is priceless and addictive.
Q. What do you love most about your job?
A. I get to meet some fantastic people… Most of my clients to are now friends and we go out for drinks.
Q. Who is your ideal customer?
A. Someone that just loves having a great time and who isn’t afraid of getting glittered or face painted!
Q. What is the funniest secret you’ve heard from a customer whilst getting glittered?
A. It’s funny how much of a counsellor you become as a Glitter Artist. I had one lady that couldn’t sit on down on the stall for me to glitter her. Then told me she had just had a tattoo done on her derriere and couldn’t sit down! I was the first to know! We were laughing together and I glittered her whilst standing.
Q. What surprises you about your job as a Glitter Artist?
A. How fun it is. I’m one of those annoying people that just completely loves what I do. Don’t get me wrong, we work hard but I’m so grateful that I had the chance to do something I love and have fun!.
Q. Have you ever organised a hen party and if so what advice would you give to hen party organisers?
A. Sat & Sun hen-dos are my thing. It’s hard to get all those friends together in one place at the same time. They could be from different locations, with different life commitments and budgets yet they are still as important to the bride. A weekend hen means people can pick and chose what they want/can get to and reduces stress for the organisers.
Q. What is your favourite glitter colour/design.
A. I’m loving really chunky emerald greens and turquoise glitters at the moment…that mermaid look always turns heads.
Q. Why should people choose a Glitter Station and what do you bring to the party?!
A. Our glitter stations are portable and sit nicely on top of a table. It can be taken to a venue or home. We set up a full array of glitters/pearls/gems/stencils & face paints. Basically, if it sparkles we’ve got it! You don’t need to limit yourself either…We have a fun menu of looks to chose from so you can easily choose how much glitter you want. Why not try glitter lips, a glitter hair parting or even some glitter body painting!
Our Glam Hatter Glitter Girls are such fun people to be around and ooze positivity, they are truly inspirational. They’ll get everyone involved and before you know it you’ll be snapping selfies of glittered hens. For more information and a quote for your Glitter Station contact Janie on the form below…

When the team at The Red House called up to discuss their corporate event ideas we were in our element. The Red House was built by William Morris – the King of Craft!
We work on our corporate event ideas with our clients in mind. We come up with the perfect creative event for the client and the space they are hosting in.
The team at The Red House were hosting a Wassail festival. The whole house was open to their clients and they also planned a Wassail procession around the orchard making as much noise as possible to scare away the evil spirits, and give the apple trees a glug of cider to encourage a year of good growth. Clients would then be invited to finish off with a hot mulled cider and mince pies in the café.
Flower Crown Workshop – Corporate Event Ideas
The Red House team required a rolling workshop for 50 people which would be completed in 2 hours. We set up a table to fit 20 people at a time and designed the flower crown workshop to take 20 minutes.
The Glam Hatter Girls arrived an hour previous to the event on a freezing December morning and were welcomed by the staff and volunteers at The red House. We quickly got to work setting up the room ready for the visitors.
That way people could pop themselves down as and when they wanted to. We provided three Glam Hatter Teachers to help customers make their half crowns and keep everyone on track time wise.
We had lots of materials to choose from and had pre-made the circle crowns so that the attendees could easily decorate them. Using soft green, pliable wire, the attendees wrapped on faux berries, leaves, holly and all things Christmassy. They made beautiful winter flower crowns and then wore the crowns for the Wassail procession around the orchard.
The Red House is a beautiful building which William Morris designed and lived in. It is absolutely incredible in terms of craft on display. It also has a super cute little cafe (fabulous cakes!) and a fab shop, ideal for Xmas gift shopping. Choose from William Morris print bags, cosy wool blankets (which make very chic scarves), and very stylish stationary.
Glam Hatters’ Events has run corporate events for law firms, galleries (including The National Gallery), retailers and events companies. We have lots of experience in this field and would love to come up with a bespoke workshop for your event. Call us for details and help with planning your corporate event.

We have a brand new hen party workshop at Glam Hatters. A Fascinator and a Flower Crown eloped to LA and nine months later the Flowernator arrives into the world!

Just the thing to wear to the hen party or save it for a festival or boho wedding.
Our flower crown workshops and fascinator workshopsare both super popular. The flowernator is a way to combine the two styles. That way everyone in your group can be sure to make the style that really suits them. We have noticed that the twenty and thirty somethings in the group tend to go for the flower crown style. The Mum’s of the bride and Aunties really love the fascinator look. This workshop is the perfect combination of styles in a hen party workshop so that everyone can feel comfortable with the piece they make. The lovely thing about the fabric flowers is that they will last until the wedding.

Crafty Hen Party In Oxford
The Glam Hatter Girls know that whilst the hen party organiser and bride-to-be may be big into craft there may be someone in your group who is not. That is why we teach our workshops with a lot of fun and giggles. We have had experience with all kind of groups. One lady (the bride’s Mummy) arrived at a workshop a few years ago and she was not keen on crafting at all. By the end of the workshop she had made a beautiful piece, chatted to her friends and spent the workshop crafting beside her daughter at the table. She then said to the teacher, “Wow, this is the best thing I’ve ever made!” And then she turned to her daughter, placed her hand on her daughter’s arm, and said, “Except for you!” There was not a dry eye in the house!

Hi There Craft People, here is my DIY Xmas Wreath Making Tutorial. As you know I am a big fan of leopard print, so for this tutorial I am going to be teaching you to make a leopard print DIY Xmas Wreath. If you’re a fan of kitsch this is definitely for you!We will be using tulle, sparkly felt and leopard print.
Everybody wants a DIY Xmas Wreath so I am thinking, leopard print and tulle. Because you don’t want to look like everybody else right?! And you want to have your own little stamp on it. I bought some gorgeous leopard print a few weeks ago for the How To Make A Katy Perry Outfit that I did for my daughter Tilly. I am using the extra bit that was left over. I’m also using a piece of card which I cut into a doughnut for the Hen Party Decoration Tulle Pom Poms Tutorial. I have cut the hole in the middle a bit bigger than I had for the pom pom. I will then use some gardening wire and tulle strips. We will be wrapping the wire circle with floristry tape and then adding the tulle strips to that by tying them on.
The tulle circle will then lay on top of the leopard print circle to make your DIY Xmas Wreath. I’m using green tulle and if you want, you can add in Xmas colours. You could add in red, I’m going for a dusky peach as I like to do it my own way! I will also be adding in some sparkly felt stars because I’ve got those left over from my Star Fascinator Tutorial.
This is a really simple and fun DIY Xmas Wreath Tutorial, here is the step-by-step guide.
DIY Xmas Wreath Step 1
My first step is to cut the doughnut to the right size. Take a look at your door and see how big you want your Xmas Wreath to be. Then draw a circle onto your card – I drew around a bucket to get a nice circle. Then measure about 8 cm in from the outside of your circle and cut the middle out. You will be left with a cardboard doughnut shape.
DIY Xmas Wreath Tutorial Step 1
DIY Xmas Wreath Step 2
Put your leopard print fabric on the table with the leopard print side down. Lay the cardboard on top and draw around it with a sharpie pen leaving a 2cm seam allowance. Cut out the fabric.
DIY Xmas Project Step 2
DIY Xmas Wreath Step 3
Cut out the fabric and lay flat on the table again with the leopard print face down.
Xmas Wreath Tutorial Step 3
DIY Xmas Wreath Step 4
Lay the cardboard doughnut on top of the fabric. Use the glue gun to stick the inner circle of the fabric to the cardboard and pull up onto the card with scissors. (This will stop you burning your fingers on the hot glue). You may find it easier to make little snips with the scissors around the leopard print on the inside circle of the Xmas Wreath. (See video above!)
DIY Xmas Make Step 4
DIY Xmas Wreath Step 5
Use the thick gardening wire to make a circle. Make the size of the wire circle slightly smaller than the outside of the doughnut (as you will be glueing it to the doughnut at a later stage.) Use the tin wire to wrap the 2 ends of the wire over each other.

DIY Xmas Wreath Step 6
Using floristry tape wrap around your circle. You don’t need any glue or water as floristry tape will stick to itself as you wrap it around the wire.
DIY Christmas 2017 step 6
DIY Xmas Wreath Step 7
Cut your tulle into strip, make them around 3 cm wide. Then once you have the strips cut out, cut them down to 10 cam lengths – you will need quite a few.
DIY Christmas Wreath step 7
DIY Xmas Wreath Step 8
Layer the small strips 2 at a time and tie to the wire circle. It took me about half an hour to tie them all on and fill up the circle. I tied on all the green first and then went back over tying in dusty peach and then went round again tying in the black tulle. I put on the most strips in green and then about one third peach and one third black (scattered in amongst the green.)
Christmas Ideas step 8
DIY Xmas Wreath Step 9
Using the glue gun stick the tulle circle to the leopard print circle. Please be very careful with your fingers as the glue gets super hot. I find it’s better to do a bit of glue then hold it down and then a bit more glue. (Otherwise the glue cools down and doesn’t stick so well.) Once you have glued it down, cut out stars using your sparkly felt.
Christmas Ideas 2017 Step 9
DIY Xmas Wreath Step 10
Then cut into your star towards the middle so that you will be able to fold edges up. Stick your stars to the leopard print with glue gun.
Chritmas Ideas DIY step 10
DIY Xmas Wreath Step 11
Once you have glued down the stars fold up the points for a more three dimensional effect.
Christmas Ideas Tutorial step 11
DIY Xmas Wreath Step 12
Using a long strip of tulle (about a meter long) hook one end between the wire hoop and the leopard print. Then pull around the wire hoop and tie the ends together in a double bow. This will be hung from your front door.
Christmas Ideas 2017 step 12

Wishing You A Very Merry Xmas Filled With Love & Laughter, Glam Hatter Girl xxx
In this post The Glam Hatter Girl researches the unusual metallic wedding cake trend. Here are the most stylish wedding cakes you need to know about!
This Unusual Metallic Wedding Cake Is By Never Pie Cakes
I’m all about metallic right now. Like a magpie it is totally on my radar. From my metallic brogues to my metallic make-up bag I am down with it! As I was scrolling through Pinterest earlier looking at cake (as you do) my eye caught upon a beautiful cube stacked metallic wedding cake. Congrats to Never Pie Cakes, I haven’t seen anything like that before. And that’s something I don’t say often in wedding planning world.

When you are planning your wedding for 2018 there are two wedding cake trend predictions you need to consider. The first is the metallic wedding cake and the second is the concrete cake. We’ll save the concrete cake for another post.
Stylish Metallic Wedding Cake By De La Creme
I stumbled across De La Creme Creative Studio on Pinterest, they are certainly not local (based in Missouri) but if it’s inspiration you’re looking for check them out. I absolutely love the details of their work (above). The colours are simple, which means the amazing detailing stands out. The metallic wedding cake above is so stylish it reminds me of all the things that make a hat beautiful. Perfect balance, poise and understated beauty. This really is a graceful metallic wedding cake.
Stylish Wedding Cake By Sweet Treats Bakery
For more intimate weddings try a one tier metallic wedding cake. Add a calligraphy style cake topper, a wash of subtle colour and gold metallic leaf. This cake from Sweet Treats Bakery is styled to perfection and I love it.
Metallic Wedding Cake Combined With Gorgeous Flowers
Flower & Metallic Wedding Cake by Cake Ink
The flower trend prevails – this cake from Cake Ink really took my breath away – possibly because I have just created a hat which looks just like this! (See below). The hat is an example from our new Luxury Fascinator Making Hen Party Workshop.

The cake below from Cakes Decor is super sweet and of course it appeals to me because it’s wearing it’s very own floral crown! What could be better?! For more beautiful flower crowns that you can wear yourself or dress your cake with check out our Flower Crown Hen Party Workshop.
Metallic & Flower Crown Wedding Cake by Cakes Decor
The subtle metallic highlights on this wedding cake combined with the straight metallic lines and super-pretty flowers make for a work of art. If anyone does “pretty” really well it’s the guys at Cotton & Crumbs. Look at their website if you’re after a very pretty and unusual metallic wedding cake.
Metallic & Floral Wedding Cake by Cotton & Crumb
Next week I will be bringing you the concrete cake. Purely because it gives me an excuse to get on Pinterest and look at cake! I have lots of inspirational boards on Pinterest, from hen party planning to wedding cake, to DIY ideas for your hen party and wedding. Take a look and remember to follow me on Pinterest for all the latest hen party and wedding news.
