In the past month I’ve hosted two baby showers, so I’m in the shower/party planning mood. Last year, I assisted my mom with hosting a bridal shower for my sister and as a gift my mom gave her a dating jar. The truth is: I created the jar and gave my mom all the credit until now. Its a jar filled with dating ideas that range in spontaneity and cost. It ended up being a hit with the bride and my mom was smiling from ear to ear.
This jar is beyond easy to create. It’s so easy that I forgot to take a picture of the finished product. Seriously, I’ll say it again, crafts are not my thing, so if I can do it, I KNOW you can do it.
Colored tongue depressors
Thin Sharpie marker
Decorative Jar (or create your own)
I color categorized the date ideas (click for ideas) for easier planning for the couple:
- Write one date idea per category on each depressor.
- Place the depressors in a decorative jar and present to the bride!
