Bathroom Baskets
Just bought two lined baskets today at Michael's for 70% off!!!
I wanted to start making a list of things to put in the baskets for the bathrooms at the reception. Does anyone have a list of what to put in them? Any pics to share?!

OMG Jessica I don't even have all that stuff in my house! Also I just got the funniest visual of someone polishing their shoes, changing their contacts, and lighting a candle while trying to put on a condom in the washroom at our wedding. Sounds like a Ben Stiller movie. :)

Seriously, I would keep it very simple.

For the ladies:
*static spray
*fashion tape
*indiv packets of advil/tums/immodium
*hand lotion

For the gents:
*lint roller
*indiv packets of advil/tums/immodium
*hand lotion

Holy cow Jessica that is one heck of a list! So far I'm putting in hairspray, lotion, tampons/pads, gum, tissues, and a simple clean scent body spray for the ladies rooms. The guys I figured hair gel, gum, and a clean scented body spray (something not too over powering). We have two sets of bathrooms for each gender. I might steal some of the ideas Jessica gave though! I don't hink I'd put any advil or anythng out just because we have a lot of kids coming and I'd hate for them to somehow get ahold of anything like that.

Yea Kids are also the reason I'm keeping out mouthwash, you just never know what those little hands will get into! Our two year old climbs like a monkey so even putting it up high wouldn't make me feel safe.

I agree with the deodorant idea but make sure it's spray! ;) I like the idea of a "bathroom basket"... great another thing to add to my to-do list :)
