    when you say jewelry party do you mean they buy what she makes? or that everyone will make it togetherand wear what they made.

    I think the second would be fun, but i think a party to support your friend might be a little uncomfortable at a shower where peole might feel pressured to buy you a gift and buy something form her. Could you make it a totally seperate party/ event?

    I think its a cute idea as long as you still treat your MOH with business sense and don’t expect your materials to be free. Also I would reimberse your MOH for her time with a gift or gift certificate if you expect her to teach all your girls how to make the jewelery. Other than that, I think it is a fun a fabulous idea! A great way to make a memory!

    Love it!!!!  I’ve been to bead shops that host parties and they show you how to make necklaces and everything, it always looked so much fun!  Plus I think the girls will enjoy the necklace more because they got to spend time with eachother so everytime they wear it they will think of all the fun.  As long as your supplying all the materials and people don’t feel pressured to buy stuff it should make for a great time!!!!

    It’s not inappropriate (“tacky” does not fit here or anywhere else) but many people are not crafty, nor are they comfortable doing so. If everyone involved feels confident in their skills (not everyone does) and genuinely want to do this, then go for it. If even one person does not feel comfortable, find a different activity that does not require hands on participation by everyone.

    I think it’s a fun idea, even if people aren’t “crafty” they should have fun- I don’t think there’s much pressure to be a pro at an event like this.

    I had a craft shower. We went to a paint your own pottery place. My shower was pretty small (10 people all together, including my best gay friend), and we had a great time. Plenty of the attendants were not crafts, but I showed them tricks on how to make it nice. Turns out, their projects, the least ambitious ones, turned out the best!

    I loved my shower because it was really social without having to resort to silly games. Asking people to pass the paint and evaluate your idea is a great ice breaker. Big success.
