Shower Idea: Guestbook Apron

February 15, 2008


In the last few years, I’ve had many friends get married and have had a few opportunities to host their bridal showers. Always looking for a creative, inexpensive idea, I wanted the brides-to-be to have a special, lasting memento of their showers. So I decided to combine the guestbook and my gift to the bride…in an apron!

Here’s what you need:

1. A plain white apron (You can purchase this at Wal-Mart or a craft store for $1 to $5.)

2. A permanent marker in the color of your choice

3. Cute ribbon to embellish the apron with (I prefer grosgrain.)

4. Iron on sticky tape/thread

At the shower, have guests “sign in” on the apron. After the shower, iron-on (or sew) the ribbon, and tada, you have a cute apron for the bride to use for years to come!



Total cost?

Apron: $1-$5

Markers: $1 (or free since most of you already have this item)

Ribbon: ~$2

Iron Tape: ~$3 /Thread: $.50

Total: ~$3.50 to $11
