I’m so excited that we’ll finally have a room for guests in our new home (let’s hope the lack of this was the reason we never get visitors). I’m planning on getting new fluffy towels, nice linens and fun soaps and such. I found this wooden box at a thrift store and thought it would make the perfect midnight snack box to put on the bedside table.

First I created a label from Pinhole Press with a polaroid I had taken. Then I filled it with my favorite local goodies: Boulder Canyon chips, Izze Sparkling Juice, Chocolove mini bars (the dark chocolate and orange peel is life changing) and packets of Justin’s Nut Butter to spread on crackers. I’m surprised I didn’t have to restock before I got around to taking photos. You want to visit now don’t you?

Pinhole Press is a YAMF sponsor but I would love their pretty photo products even if they weren’t. If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities, please email me.

    I did the EXACT same thing for my wedding welcome bags — all local Boulder products, including many of the delicious ones above! :)

    Melanie – I adore this! I live in CO too and I love how you filled the box with local CO treats. Watch out – those Chocolate Love bars are addicting! Cheers, (with sparkling cider as I read you are expecting)! :)
