Welcome Baskets

For our international guests, I decided to... hang on a sec. International guests! GO AWAY! You can find out whats in the darn baskets when you get here!
As I was saying, I decided to add a number of treats, some water, and some information on what there is to do on the island. 


For snacks I added a bag of salted lays, a packet of mixed nuts and raisins, a bag of pretzels, a granola bar, 2 bars of chocolate, and a packet of thin, plain cookies. I figured these were things that were easily transportable, and they could take them on trips they'll take on their own as well.


Here's what the look like for the time being:





Sorry about the grainy pics, they're from my phone. I am planning on adding a personalized note to each one, and also making a small welcome sign, in our wedding colors, that will be tied around the front of the basket, just to make it a little prettier.

What do you guys think? Anything else you would add?
