Five Things : Southern Hospitality

Invitations: Check

Looks like you've got all your ducks in a row, miss-priss! But you forgot one little detail that will make your out-of-town guests remember why they love ya so much. In the south we pride ourselves on being great hostess. We throw great parties, give adorable favors, and make sure you have lots of wine with a ball'a cheese. Why should this be any different for our wedding? 

Your out-of-town guests came over the river and through the woods to celebrate your big day so how's about you show them some appreciation with an affordable gift basket! And don't fret, I found some great options for even better prices! 


Pull out your colored pencils or grab a crafty friend to make maps of your town and it's hot-spots. Your guests may come a day early or leave a day late and might want to do some sightseeing. Take your sketches and favorite simple craft paper to a printer and boom...make-shift map!


If your wedding is in a warmer season, consider straw hand fans. I found these online for $3 each! 


Your wedding city is bound to have some sort of local beverage. Whether it's wine or beer, throwing some of this in the basket is sure to please. If it's beer, put 2 in a basket or get sampler bottles of the local wine. This should only total to $2-$4 per basket. 


Along with your drink of choice, throw in some local cuisine. Whether it's Hubigs Pies from New Orleans or Loveless Cafe jam from Nashville, your guest will appreciate a treat just for them! This pack of 3 is $8.95 so divvy 'em up for more to go 'round!


And to help them rest in a foreign bed, add a lavender sachet to go under their pillow. Here shows you an easy DIY way to make them! So precious, right? 

Pile 'em all in a cute tin basket ($4 at this wholesale site) and you've got a goodie-bag-to-boot!
