This is too funny!  We did this for my sister’s shower a few years ago and it was a lot of fun!  One thing we did was note that the items we painted were our gifts to my sister.  That way, people didn’t have to purchase a gift beforehand, plus she got a bunch of really personal gifts from her close friends and family.  Also, it meant that we didn’t have to worry about picking up the pottery a few days later and distributing it to all the ladies.

It is not too childish at all!  My sister was 29 when we did it.  A lot of her friends are artsy or crafty, so it was perfect for them.

I think this is an AWESOME idea! I am a big giant fan of paint your own pottery places – I think this would be a blast!!!

I think that is a cute idea and unique.  I’ve been to so many boring standard showers that would be a fun change!

we also did this for my sil’s shower. my mom covered the cost of the pottery. she went above and beyond and had my sil pick out whatever she wanted for people to paint, but they also had everyone paint a tile, which the people at the pottery place put around a mirror so you have a nice mirror surrounded by pretty tiles. you could see if they have something like that there because it’s a reasonable price and you get to keep something memorable from your guests at your shower.

we’ve also thrown a shower for a friend that was scrapbooking. a few of the bride’s friends are scrapbookers so they had a TON of stuff and we just laid it all out on a table. we told everyone to bring their favorite pictures of themselves with the bride, and everyone created a scrapbook page and we put a whole book together by the end of the night.

I think that this is a fantastic idea! I know that if my MOH’s did something like this for me, I’d be all over it. Great thinking!!
