At the beginning of the year we shared a post with you on Memory Jars. It’s a wonderful way to save memories for your family throughout the year. Take a jar and use it all year round to hold family memories. You can add little notes, ticket stubs, photos, etc to the jar throughout the year. At the end of the year, you take some time to go through the jar with your family. You can either close up the jar and keep as a time capsule, or empty the jar and begin a new set of memories for the new year. I took the idea of a Memory Jar to a different level with my daughter’s bridal shower a few weeks ago. I decided to make a Memory Jar that guests could write “Words of Wisdom” to the bride and groom and place inside the jar.
I placed a display table in one area of the room where we held the bridal shower.
On this table I placed the glass jar and papers for guests to leave encouraging
words to my daughter and her fiance.
A simple printable sign explaining how each guest could help create a Memory Jar for the happy couple…
I used a simple glass jar and added glass beads to the bottom. Guests placed the papers into the jar when they finished writing their Words of Wisdom…
The jar and sign made a nice display on the table with all the other photos…
