Welcoming Your Guests

It's such a nice gesture to give your guests a nice surprise when they are traveling from out of town to your event.  Whether simple or elaborate, a welcome bag should always have a personal note from the hosts or honorees and an itinerary of the weekend festivities.

I just did these Palm Beach welcome bags for a bride & groom from New York City who were having their wedding in Palm Beach.

Some fun items to include in your gift bags:
water bottles - personalized
honey roasted peanuts
granola bars
personalized mints
personalized hand sanitizer
mini champagne or wine
gourmet popcorn
personalized drink mix
something local

It's fun to include things that are your favorites to really let the guests get a glimpse of who you really are. Have fun with this - use creative containers (beach buckets, palm leaf totes, canvas totes, boxes) and fun foods and it will show your guests that you appreciate the distance they have traveled to celebrate with you!
