    I wanted to give a little something to all of our guests for coming but I am paying for my niece and her mother to which has basically taken away most of the funding for OOT bags, centerpieces and so on. I have since turned to my crafty side and I have amazingly come up with quite a bit of stuff. (mainly thanks to the other ladies on the forum) and some of it I have found online or done before.
    I just wanted to share my ideas with anyone that might like to use them and also say thank you to anyone that has posted stuff that has helped me out

    So far what I have made
    bath salt
    soap
    candles
    mini pinatas (currently making them)
    Mexican recipe book
    welcome letter & booklet
    origami seahorses
    "oh shit kits" first aid kit (got this from another bride on here loved it so much I HAD to steal it)
    matchbooks
    mint books
    treasure map (we are taking everyone on a whale watching boat ride)
    coloring/activity book

    I am also working on centerpieces
    and getting reay to orer some real touch flowers and try to make my own bouquets and bouts.

    I'll post pictures as soon as I can
