So remember when I was adamant on having chocolate & peanut butter Buckeyes as our favors? No? [Please reference this post or this post or this one]
Well, I suddenly began to think about the weather and how chocolate & peanut butter tend to react to 75 degree temperatures (which is apparently what the temp. will be in the Fall here, according to Weather Tracker). Do I really want my cute little boxed-up favors to be a melted mess for our guests? Nope.
Enter our new and improved favor (a.k.a. our former Welcome Basket ingredient): Salt-Water Taffy.
Next question: Now that I've eliminated my cutest addition to our Welcome Baskets, what should I replace it with???? All I'm left with is local magazines and brochures, a few munchies, water bottles and the standard aspirin and sunscreen all bundled into the galvanized buckets. I need something fun and beachy and adorable. Help! :o)
msteacherlady: I heart your ideas!!! I love the sweet tea mix idea -- I'm thinking I could put a Lipton mix with a heaping bag of sugar and a note about 'Sweet Southern Tea' ... and I adore the cookie-cutter as well as the Magnolia soap!!! I'm still brainstorming but these are fabulous ideas I would have never thought of myself! Thank you!
Also, I really, really, really like the arrangement Heather from the bar recommended below. It's ridiculously charming! I'm going to try out my Mom's silver trays, etc. and if those don't work, I'm definitely going to try and replicate this (from the one and only):
