Color:  any

Make an inviting and warm atmosphere.

Use some kitchen or food related things as accents such as a soup tureen, large serving bowls filled with fruit. 

Some old kitchen utensils might be fun such as graters, large spoons and utensils in a crock (old red handled items would work well).

Use a large basket of potatoes, fake food such as grape clusters, etc.

Place bibles strategically here and there along with your items or make scrolls to resemble the Scriptures.

Place individual verses in small frames. 

Tablescape Display

Make a table top display of fruits, vegetables, or any type of food products. 

Place a large Bible as the focal point. 

You could have a place setting (plate, silverware, napkin, and glass with the Bible placed on top of the plate.


Songs about the Bible

Break Thou The Bread of Life Lathbury

The B-I-B-L-E (Chorus)


Scripture Bookmarks

Nice Recipe Card with recipe written or set of blank cards.

Bible Food (This idea was sent in from one of the CLM visitors)

Cover mini cereal boxes with black construction paper and write "Bible" on the front to look like a Bible.  (You could also use small boxes of raisins).

Use white paper, making vertical lines along the side to look like pages and write Bible on the other edge with a couple gold lines to make it look like the binding. 

Attach the theme verse (Jer. 15:16)
