Slipper & Flip Flop Baskets

Weddings are a great time to let your personality shine! if you love to party then the perfect event detail for your special occasion would be a slipper or flip flop basket. We can design and personalise a slipper/flip flop basket for any occasion from a casual beach wedding to a girl’s night in fuzzy slipper delight!

Sandy beaches, country affairs and back yard weddings are just a few of the great Wedding venues that are perfect for a slipper/flip flop basket. Your guests will love to slip out of those heels and kick on for hours of fun and dancing!

We tailor each basket to exactly what you want, there are various types of slippers or flip flops you can choose from (including a personalised flip flops range), you can choose to have your basket placed around your dance floor, on guest chairs, or even in the restrooms for easy access for anyone whose feet may be feeling a bit weary from all the fun. You can choose the vessel (baskets, tubs or something creative) that you would like to have to display them, and most importantly you can choose the colours!

The colour options in both slippers and flip flops are endless and can be easily matched to your wedding theme colours. You can have several different colours or opt for one more natural colour and dress them up by having them in their own individual organza bags of a specific colour.

We can incorporate additional details such as single or double sided tags (one side might have the size and the other side have the wedding/event/logo/date/poem/ or anything you like.) We can help you pick the perfect display idea that stays within your theme and your budget, including signage & how you want the slippers/ flip flops organised.

When you want to give your guests a memorable gift while also supplying them comfort, let them kick off their heels and just dance in a comfortable pair of slippers or flip flops!

Amenity & Bathroom Baskets

One of the most popular details we create for weddings & special occasions are amenity/bathroom baskets. They are an affordable way to personalise your wedding and provide those small comforts from home for your entire guest list.

We have all been out enjoying ourselves when we realise we need a safety pin for our dress or perhaps mouth wash to freshen up. Our amenity baskets provide for such a situation and knowing that you have one on hand in the restrooms will not only help you feel more at ease that everything is taken care of but also make your guests feel well looked after.

Amenity/bathroom baskets can be as extravagant as your budget will allow, however a simple basket with some necessities is inexpensive and extremely well received by guests. You can arrange to have your baskets compliment your wedding or event theme through décor on the basket’s themselves and through your informational signage. Depending on your venue and destination, you can incorporate some of the region necessities into your wedding bathroom baskets to give them even more personality and flair.

You can choose from a variety of vessels such as various decorative boxes, baskets, vases, totes, and tubs to display your amenities into while working with in your budget. Even a small budget will offer your guest that extra touch on those moments when they think “I wish I would have brought some…”.

Bathroom baskets can contain a multiple of items such as:

• Aspirin/Panadole or Anti-acids tablets (Women’s and Men’s Bathroom Baskets)

• Feminine Hygiene Products and Hollywood Fashion Tape Items (Women’s Bathroom Basket)

• Personalized Hygiene Products such as deodorant (spray), mouth wash, individual disposable tooth brushes, dental floss, mints, contact lens solution, Q-tips, Tweezers, perfume/cologne, tissues (Men’s and Women’s Bathroom Baskets)

Welcome Bags ~ Say Thank You with a Guest Welcome Bag

Weddings bring family and friends together from all over the globe. Close friends and family will travel great distances to lend their love and support for a loved one’s big day. When our family & friends go to such length to be present for a day as special as your wedding, offering them a welcome note & gift is a great way to show them just how much it means to you that they are there.

Guest welcome bags, also known as OOT (Out of Town) Bags/Boxes are a great alternative to saying “welcome” and “so glad you came” when you are dealing with an usually hectic schedule taking care of last minute details and preparations for your big day.

Welcome Bags/Boxes can be as large or as small as your budget will allow. The extra expense in this inclusion into your wedding can give you the opportunity to personalise and memorialise your day for everyone.

From just a simple welcome letter to the ultimate splurge you can fill your gift bags/boxes with snacks to curb the traveler’s appetite, local treats from the area, or even homemade delights.

Easily incorporate your wedding surrounds into your gift bags/boxes too! If your setting is a beach front consider putting beach towels, sunscreen and flip flops into your gift bags/boxes. If you are planning a country getaway, perhaps a welcome gift bag full of homemade goodies; handcraft items and local treat. Winter wedding bags could be filled with hot chocolate mixes, coffee mixes, fuzzy slippers or even fun matching flannel pajamas. Top off any destination wedding bag with chocolates & candy.
