    I decided I would do a little amenity basket in the bathrooms since it was going to be so cheap and I already was going to do custom hand towels.  The bathroom near my reception site is pretty bare so I felt it needed something.  And while its a public restroom, its off the beaten path from anything else so there shouldn't be anyone in there that isn't a guest.


    I don't want to carry any "baskets" in my suitcase so i just took some old gift boxes and wrapped them in extra invitation paper and put a ribbon around it.  Not my greatest work, but hey, its gonna be thrown away.  The girls basket is a lot more full than the guys.  Here is a list of items I put in:



    Tissue, lint roller, shout wipes, static guard, Advil, band aids, tic tacs, lotion (using hotel sample packs)


    Girls only:

    hair brush, hair spray, hair ties, bobby pins, nail file, tampons


    The hand towels were ordered from The Knot

            Our guests loved this and apparently so did some other people.  My WC had warned that the bathroom wasn't private for our event space but I figured, no big deal, there was a sign that said compliments of the bride and groom.  Well I guess people don't care and will basically take anything that isn't nailed down.  I went to the bathroom to fix my hair early on and the box was almost empty.  I had seen some brides that wrote signs about "use what you need and leave the rest for other guests" but I thought that didn't need to be explained.  Oh well - live and learn.  I'm still glad I did it.  And the guests loved the hand towels.

                I've got a lot of templates uploaded under different threads (there were none involved in this one).  After my honeymoon I'm going to work on my planning thread in which I'll provide links to some of my other threads.  In the meantime, I think you can go under my profile and choose "threads started" and find them.  If there are any not on there, just PM me.

                  I really liked your basket. I have to say I wasn't going to do one. However I just went to a wedding and they had this and I ended up using the lotion and hair ties. So I guess I need to do one now.
