Southern Details: Welcome Bags

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted a Southern Details post, but what better Southern detail than a warm & hospitable welcome bag to greet your traveling guests! I love how these have evolved into an extension of the wedding weekend with beautifully crafted maps and itinerary booklets, hometown classics, and creative packaging. Here are a few of my favorites that I’m totally smitten with!

I love that all of these can be modified with a non-wedding theme to simply greet a house guest that is coming for the weekend! There is something so sweet and thoughtful about being welcomed with a basket when visiting friends or family.

Have you ever been greeted with a welcome basket at a wedding or just for a weekend stay with friends?
