I am a bridesmaid next weekend and at the last minute all of the bridesmaids decided to have a little party for the bride.  It's kind of just a last night of singledom...nothing wild and crazy.  We'll probably go out to eat and end up watching chick flicks with face masks on. 

But I was thinking that it would be fun to do some sort of craft.  The bride is super crafty and loves that sort of thing.  It has to be something where we can get supplies last minute and nothing too extensive since it has to be done in an evening.  I was tossing around the idea of all of us girls making her Christmas ornaments as the bride and groom probably don't have any yet. 

Any other bright ideas for us?

I think that is such a sweet idea! Making ornaments is very clever, given the season. I am also a huge fan of making gift tags...that's super-easy. Pick up a box of manila tags at Staples, then ask everyone to bring some markers, stickers, 3D embellishments, etc. and make holiday gift tags?

Another thought...thank you notes...she'll always need some of those! pick up blank cards, rubber letter stamps, colorful ink, etc.

have fun!

It all depends on what they have for their house already...
Personally I think I would LOVE having all my friends make throw pillows!Or something to that effect. Yeah... Grin

you should make throw pillows and stitch on the bride and groom's names, "I love you," "i do," etc.

that's all i have.....i hope that i've helped! Smiley

You could get the bride to give you or bring with her all of the pictures that she has of her & the fiance , and pictures of places they've been together while they've been dating and/or engaged, any pics of memorable places/moments/seasons,etc while they've been together.  Go buy a really nice, very large  leather-bound scrapbook album (that she could later have monogrammed or something inscribed on the front of it) and some nice, quality scrapbook supplies....make a "themed" scrapbook of their life together before marriage.  I say to buy a large album because you could leave plenty of pages for her to add pictures of the wedding and pictures from their first year of marriage.  And each "era" could be themed by color....dating/engagement - pink; wedding - silver/gray; 1st year - blue....or whatever colors you choose for the first part and she chooses for the other 2 later.  Then all of you could help her do the pages of their "dating life" at the party.

ORRRRR.....if all of the bridesmaids have pictures of themselves with the bride, then all of you could bring whatever pics you have and do a scrapbook of her with her friends and then after the wedding you, another bridesmaid, or the bride herslef could add pictures of the bridesmaids and the wedding with all of you together at the end.

The only thing this requires would be an album, scrapbooking supplies and pictures!  Quick, easy, fun and not too expensive unless you go over the top with the album purchase itself!

For my girls night out event we made thank you  notes to be sent out after the wedding.  We set it up in stations and it worked out really well.  My maid of honor is really into stamping so she had all the supplies ready.  We made about 80 elaborate cards in 2 hours with 8 people making. It was just what I wanted.

it's all jewelry all the time!
