close up bug bucket 2A fun pick-me-up idea for Wednesday…Create a bin for your guests with a few essentials to make their outdoor experience a delight!  Mosquitos are trending right now and continue to wreak havoc on outdoor fun.  To keep the focus on you and your fab party, offer a variety of mosquito repellents in a galvanized pail.  I had my friend Megan with Cleggraphy Designs make a fun tag “We don’t want to bug you” and tied it to the handle.

Other ideas to add into the pail, bottles of sunscreen, sunglasses (you know the kind you get as giveaways — perfect use for them), and battery operated personal-sized fans.

After the party, stow it away with your stash of beach towels and you’re good to go for the next time!
