Our party calendar for May is packed with bridal showers—stay tuned for an upcoming feature on real-life parties with loads of stealable inspiration! In the meantime, we found this gem to hold you over from our blogger friend Taryn, who runs formalfringe.com. All of the stunning showers we've seen recently have two things in common: handmade details and customization. This do-it-yourself apothecary jar would make a thoughtful guest favor or bridesmaid gift. Display them in neat rows near the entrance to make a sweet first impression.
Leave the bottle (or bottles, if that’s the case) in a cool, dry place overnight. Since acetate isn’t very breathable, this label will need to sit for at least a day to dry. It’ll be ready when the glue dries to become completely clear.
Taryn filled hers up with water and a tiny drop of pink food coloring. We think it would also be fun to fill it with a purchased or homemade fragrance. You could choose specific scents based on each bridesmaid's personality and preferences.
