Our venue actually has two sets of bathrooms, both of which are easily accessible and close to the ballroom. Of course, I didn't find that out until I had already made two baskets, so I had to run back to Target for more supplies and make a second pair!
By the time I made these I was so sick of spending money on things that would get thrown away after the wedding, so I got creative with the baskets to avoid purchasing them...
Women's Restroom #1 - My mom's bread basket!
Women's Restroom #2 - The basket that holds my headbands and hair accessories in my bathroom!
Men's Restroom #1 - A basket from my mom's craft cabinet!
Men's Restroom #2 - A decorative bowl from our Guest Room!
I decorated the bowls with double-faced satin ribbon (which is HUGELY hard to find in navy, as it turns out) and those little bracket frames that I love so much. As for contents, the girls' baskets were way more full than the guys because I figured they'd notice/appreciate it more. I also put maroon candles with navy bows in the girls' bathrooms.
Women's Restroom Contents:
Tampons and Pads
Gum & Mints
Men's Restroom Contents:
Gum & Mints
A lot of the stuff from the baskets was used/gone at the end of the night, so I guess the baskets were helpful to some people!
Funny story: At the end of the night as Jeff and I were on our way to the hotel, I realized I had never gone to the bathroom at the reception (weird, right? Especially since there was an open bar that I was utilizing...I guess I was having too much fun to pee?), so I didn't even know if the baskets ever made it to the bathroom counters. So I asked Jeff, and it turns out he never went to the bathroom either. So when we got home from Jamaica I asked my mom how the baskets looked in the bathroom, and guess what... neither my mother nor my father ever went to the bathroom either. It's like we have abnormally huge bladders or something.
