Hello There – I arrived home Saturday around noon from my Women’s Retreat!! I had a wonderful time, and as most of you know I share treats and notes with my fellow retreaters! This year I wanted to change things up a little bit and encourage note writing by everybody. More on that in a while!! But I put together a fun WELCOME basket for each lady!!
Here is my basket:
What was included in their Blue welcome basket (from Dollar Tree) was the following things:
A Mailbox to receive Love Notes in
Each person had a mailbox made from a gable box with their name on it! I cut a slit in the top part of the box with an exacto knife and a ruler! A couple of fun buttons and twine were added to jazz it up a little!!
A Love Notes Kit
More information about this Love Notes kit will be in my next post!! But this is what they looked like from the front!
The tissues were for when we had touching moments and there were lots of those!! The message on them was good for a chuckle from the ladies!!
A Scoop of Chocolate
And no activity involving women would be complete without CHOCOLATE!!! I had some plastic scoops from the Dollar Tree that I filled with Dove chocolates and Lindt truffles!
Water Bottle w/ drink mix and a straw
Attached to the water bottle was a drink mix packet (also from Dollar Tree) and a cute yellow straw from a Party Goods store! The patterned paper replaced the regular label and on it it says: H2O and juice to go, with a pretty straw to help it flow, to cure thirst, ya know!!!
We lined them up in the hall way on the main floor next to a big chest that was there! We put some of them on the chest as well!!
When I say WE I mean myself, and two close friends! We arrived first and were able to set these up before the others got there!!
On the last night we took a picture of all of us – 1 Silly and 1 Regular
Here are the wonderful ladies I spent time with:
Can you guess which one is me?? Just look for the gal in yellow!!!
I am grateful for all the friends I have that enrich my life!! I appreciate EACH one of them, near and far!!
