Since I think this is quite possibly literally the cutest bridal shower idea I've EVER seen, I obviously have to share. Dawn, the shower host, asked each guest to paint a tin can during shower craft time.
Great work, no? Months later, the tin cans were tied on to the bride and groom's "getaway bike" at the end of their reception! Here's a photo of the lovelies in action on the big day:
I LOVE this idea! First, I think it would be such a fun shower activity, and second, I adore the sentiment of incorporating a piece of so many special women into your wedding!
You can read more about the planning of the shower from Dawn, the mastermind behind everything, here. You can also see more photos on the bride's blog here. Lastly, if you'd like to see more photos from the actual wedding, click here and here!
