Wedding Bathroom Basket

Last October my youngest son, Joe, got married and I volunteered to make the basket for the bathroom.   This basket was to include essentials that may be forgotten by our guests.  Of course I searched Pinterest and came up with several great looking baskets and ideas.

I bought a large black wicker basket 12" x 18" x 6", lined it with burlap and tied a pretty sheer purple and gold ribbon around the basket with a bow.

Items in the basket:
Pack of Tissues
Box of Panty Liners
Aerosol Deodorant
Static Cling Spray
Sewing Pack with Needles and Thread
3 Toothbrushes
3 Tubes of Toothpaste
Several Packs of Gum
Tic Tacs
Band Aids
Pads for Sore Heels
Box of Tampons
Box of Mini Pads
Safety Pins
  Chap Sticks
Bobby Pins
Granola Bars
Black Mascara 
Make Up Removal Pads 
Hair Ties
Hand Cream
Nail Clippers 
Clear Nail Polish
Dental Floss

This message to our guests was attached to the basket.

The basket looked really nice on the counter in the ladies bathroom during the wedding.  Most of the "good stuff" was used or taken for later use.  The only thing I did not count on was that there were 2 weddings at the venue that evening and 2 sets of wedding guests would be sharing this bathroom...we did share nicely!
