Another important goal of a gift basket is to give the guests a hint of the two young people getting married. An uncle from the bride’s side will not know the prospective groom, so how does he get to know the groom?
Well, we started with their favorite snack, a popcorn bucket, and filled it with shredded paper. A cup from my daughter’s alma mater, Ole Miss was added. The basket included the couple’s favorite candy, water bottles, a bottle of Jack Daniels… a native drink for Tennesseans.
The hotel did not serve breakfast so we added freshly baked blueberry scones
And some homemade blackberry jam,
One of the most important things we added, was a fun fact sheet of the bride and groom. The fun fact included favorite things, baby facts, how far away the groom was when he proposed, etc.
Lastly, we added an itinerary for the guests so they knew directions to the all the events.
I know the guest enjoyed the baskets and we had fun putting them together.
