bridal shower craft

If you have ever attended a party thrown by the Karons, you will know that it wouldn’t be a Karon celebration without a little crafting. When we were little living in Rochester, my mother threw a birthday party for our “Gen X Karon kitties,” Pokey and Smokey, which included everyone making their own cat collars out of mason jar lids, and painting whiskers on our faces. Since I am being honest, there was also a contest to see who could lick milk out of a saucer the fastest. Part of me thinks now that this was an excuse for our parents to see a bunch of 3-9 year olds behave hilariously, but regardless, we all had a ball.

At Rosie’s bridal shower, we set up a “make your own veil” station. Even though Rosie was the one getting married, why shouldn’t everyone feel special and beautiful. The table was stocked with miles of tulle, elastic, flowers, pom poms, ribbons, feathers, pipe cleaners, lace- everything that you could have wanted! My mother told me “we have so many supplies, we will have to do this at yours and Evey’s weddings too!” That did not happen, we almost cleaned out the table completely.

This was such a fun activity to get people up and moving around, taking pictures, and doing something different! Scores better than more popular shower activities like “toilet paper dresses” or “what’s in your purse,” as every vendor on Etsy tried to convince me was an absolute MUST activity.
