    Ladies, Today I went to Target just to get out of the house....oh boy am I glad I did. I have been searching online for weeks for an affordable idea for favors for our wedding in St. Thomas next year. I have seen so many great ideas on this site.....So.....onto my find today.... Our colors are Turquoise & Yellow...I found these cute pails with a bow at Target....and guess what the price was.......(drumroll please...) They were $1.00 originally....but Target had them on sale for...... $.25!!!!!!!! I could not believe it! I was literally smiling as I loaded up my cart with the little yellow pails. Every time someone would come pass my cart if they smiled at me...they got the excitement. The bows were put on the pail through 2 holes so it can be replaced. We are expecting about 30 guests so I went ahead and bought 41! The target near me only had 20 so I went to customer service and the lady printed out the stores that had more.... I also found this sparkly kind of card stock paper...also turquoise & yellow.... Now...I need ideas of what to put in them! 2011-04-30 20.00.11.jpg

    The paper was also .25 cent a piece so I bought 10 (three colors come in the packs yellow, turquoise & pink). 

    There were different color pails: yellow (obviously), blue (almost turquoise but wasn't close enough), pink (fuschia), white (awesome to go with any color theme).


    Ladies....if your idea is to get a pail....please go to Target.  Not sure how long they will last....especially if you live near me :-)


    The pails should be light to travel with....I plan on getting stickers (Thank You's)....


    Please share any ideas on what to put in these little treasures!

    So Amazing......July 4, 2012!!!!!!

      One last thing...We will not fill them to we get to the resort.  My fiance and I arrive the day before our guests.  We intend to put our stickers on and fill them there.  Please give any suggestions on what to put in them.....I already have one....My fiance and I met online and I found these cute LOVE keyboard magnets.  The sticker says "Love is the key" and they can be personalized.....
