A reader wrote to me and gave me the heads up about a creative new trend in the bachlorette party world. Beading Buds, an Ontario based travelling jewelry making party. This company is ideal for bridal showers as a fun activity for the guests who will love creating one-of-a-kind jewelry. This also takes care of the bonbonniere since the guests will be taking home the jewelry that they make. Jewelry making parties are also the perfect solution for brides that want to have a bachlorette party and would prefer celebrating by spending a cosy girl’s night in with their close friends and family, especially in the Canadian winter!
Another great service this company provides for brides is a “bridal jewelry making party”. The bridal party and the mothers of the bride and groom get together for a fun night where they make the jewelry that they will wear on the big day. A Beading Buds designer will work with the bride prior to the party to design the bridal party jewelry using pearls, swarowski crystal and semi-precious stones to create beautiful jewelry that is completely custom and fits in exactly with what the bride is envisioning for the big day. The designer will be at the party to assist the bridal party and to make sure that everybody has a piece of jewelry that they love and will be proud to wear. This is the perfect attendant gift for the bridal party and is a fun way to celebrate the bride and the upcoming wedding.
The concept of Beading Buds is that they are like having a bead store come to your home or choice of venue to assist you and your guests in making jewelry. They send beading designers/instructors who bring beading tools and hundreds of beautiful glass beads in every shape, size and colour imaginable as well as a wide assortment of unique sterling silver plated clasps. The instructors assist you in picking your beads and designing and creating your piece. Their prices start at $18 per person. The company originally started out as a birthday party entertainer for kids, but in the last few years have expanded to doing adult birthday parties, corporate events, holiday parties, bachlorette parties and bridal showers.
They are located in the GTA and service Hamilton, Guelph, Georgetown, Milton, Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga, Port Credit, Streetsville, Brampton, Etobicoke,Toronto, North York, Vaughan, Woodbridge, Thornhill, Richmond Hill and Newmarket. You can reach them via e-mail or telephone by visiting their MPW profile at Beading Buds.
