Tips for creating the Perfect Bathroom Baskets
•Grab yourself a nice basket, a pretty decorated box or tray to put your items in but keep in mind the space you will be placing them, make sure the basket isn't too big for the counter or too small for all the items you are including. If there is no counter space at your venue ask if a small  table can be left in the toilets to hold the bathroom kit.
•Create his and hers baskets for ladies and gents' bathrooms. Tweak the above list by adding in or omitting items.
•Collect product samples throughout your planning, they’re free and they are perfectly sized for bathroom baskets.
•Don't put any sort of medication (paracetamol/aspirin etc) in the basket. Leave these items behind reception and leave a little note in the baskets telling your guests where they can get them if needed.
•If you have little ones attending you may not want them getting their hands on scissors, needles or glue! Keep these items out of reach from little hands.
•Don't go overboard filling these baskets, head to Penneys, Eurosaver shops and supermarket own brand items are fine.
•Ask a bridesmaid or a family member who is offering to help, to organise this for you. Just send them on this list to print out and they can pick up bits and pieces throughout the planning process.
