Out of Town Baskets

I mentioned yesterday that one of the things I really like is the out of town basket we’ve put together for our guests coming in for the wedding. Budget-wise, we couldn’t go way overboard with any of the wedding elements, but I did want to have at least a little something to welcome our guests, so we put together a basket with some welcome treats and area information. I hadn’t decided exactly how I wanted to package the information, though, to give guests the proper preview. Then I saw this:

I love the half moon envelopes! Really, how can you not have a Paper Source obsession on some level? So now we have gorgeous red half moon enclosures with welcome stickers to go in the box, along with custom-labeled water, tea packets, biscotti, and chocolate.

Those are first on the to-do list for this weekend, since our first guests will be getting in Sunday night! Just one more week — SO excited!!!

Cleaning Up

Saw this soap on Etsy today (loving the lovely gray products). Tell me how perfect it would be for bridesmaids bags…

Speaking of bridesmaid’s bags, the wedding decisions blitz continues. Over the weekend, we made decisions on: flowers, accommodations for the wedding night (which are top secret, but we did make a decision), most of the favors for the kiddie bags, and most of the stuff for the bridesmaids gifts (which, aside from the hint above, I’ll have to share later, to preserve the element of surprise). And, I just saw the folders that Elizabeth created for her vow renewal, and they’d be the perfect size for the OOT packets, so I’m hoping she’ll share (btw, check out the great time capsule guest book!!)
