be it from los angeles or holland, all of our lovely guests traveled for our wedding. to thank them and greet them with a big smile we delivered these little welcome boxes.
first we had to make them look pretty. to personalize the kraft paper gable boxes, I gooco'd "hello there" labels. first the yellow chevron design. while that dried, i mixed the paint for a nice gray and printed the greeting on top.
to help our guests get acquainted with the area and the plans for the weekend, we put together a little booklet with all of the important weekend information as well as ideas for things to do in their down time. after all the pages were printed and trimmed (thank you honey) i stitched each booklet on our sewing machine. the thread stuck a few times - slow and steady is definitely the key here.
because information will only win over so many hearts we had to include some yummies too! here's a quick list of what we included in each box:
• 2 bottles of water
• the BEST tater chips ever made
• horizon organic milk
• famous amos chocolate chip cookies
• sunscreen (so important in palm springs)
• excedrin (so important for the morning after)
• a vintage-inspired palm springs postcard
oh, i also gocco'd the wine tag you see in the first photo. once you start gocco'ing it's incredibly hard to stop!
