Guest Baskets… part 2? *Free Printable Banner*

September 11th, 2011

So when I did my last post on the guest basket, I so thought I was done with my basket. I was just going to put some random bow on it. So I pulled out my ribbons, and played around with a bow, and NOTHING looked good. So then I was just going to leave it be, but then I thought if I did a pleated ribbon, it might work better. So I took some burlap trim from my Lost & Found Sunshine set, and just folded it as I ran it through the sewing machine. Then I played around with that and it was so cute draped in the front, but the draping called for a cute banner. So off I went to design and print a banner. And voila, the perfect cherry on top.

I also added the water bottles with their label, put the flossers in that I had forgotten, and made little tags for the toiletries:

Here is a sneak peak of the guest room, all ready for our guests:

I really am done now! If you want to download the graphics to make your own welcome banner, here is a free PDF download:

  8. [...] source Amenities and Necessities It’s a good idea to include some basic amenities in your welcome baskets. Las Vegas wedding guests may forget some everyday local must-haves like bottled water and sunscreen. Snacks at major hotels can be expensive, so including cheese and crackers, or a couple of candy items can help while weary travelers are first settling in. Go the extra mile and make your baskets personal by featuring some of each of your favorite childhood (or even current favorite) snacks. Local Flavor Capture the local flavor by including items with regional significance. A basket for a wedding in Ireland, for example, may include an assortment of local teas, a bottle opener or perhaps a pair of wool socks for the potentially cool weather. If you are planning an upscale or more sophisticated affair, source local wines or add in a bottle of your favorite bubbly with personalized toasting flutes. [...]
