Care Packages for Out of Town Guests

Such a thoughtful idea, putting together care packages for your out of town guests. Add anything from snacks and drinks to maps of the area, mints and maybe their itinerary. I love incorporating local specialties or using a theme, for instance for a beach destination throw in some sunblock. They can be packaged in so many ways, I obviously love using a box, but a gift bag or basket also work nicely. This first care package was done for a large wedding at the Ritz Carlton. We delivered thirty care packages to four different hotels in the Newport Beach, CA area and I am sure the out of towners were thrilled to be greeted with this personal display of refreshments.
I love using my favorite snacks from Trader Joe's and repackaging them in cellophane bags or clear view boxes. I just created simple labels on Microsoft Publisher, but you could definitely order them for My Wedding Labels {link to the right under sponsors}. I need to think of a reason to make these again soon. I do love them.
These cute little boxes were for a beach wedding. For a more whimsical feel we added a starfish cookie, Glee gum, snack mix and chocolate sea shells. These were really so much fun. I wanted to be one of the guests that opened these.
