I am not sure about websites since I have not purchased mine yet. You can really use any type of container such as cloth tote bags, gift bags, gable boxes etc… I would google those things and you will find a lot of online sellers.

Yeah, I think it will depend on what kind of container you want to use before you start looking into specific sites. We used kraft gable boxes and got them here:

They seemed to have the best price. Then we made custom tags for them with our names, wedding date and “welcome!” written on them.

It definitely depends on the type of container you plan to use, which will probably be determined by your theme/style. We ended up going with berry tills which are incredibly cheap and really suited our natural, outdoor, farm-to-table theme. Here’s a picture.

We bought white shopping bags from papermart.com, and clear printable labels from Staples. I think for the bag itself the total project cost was under $20 for about 40 of them! (More for the snacks and water)

Thanks KMSull! I wish I could take credit but it was really Martha’s idea (Stewart, of course).

@LoveSmartDesign: Those are adorable!  Where did you get the berry tills?

@sarahnyc23: I bought them from Roof Basket Works (www.roofbasket.com). Don’t be put off by the site — I’m pretty sure they are a bulk basket provider to farmers and such, but they were happy to accommodate my smaller order. Go to “Our Products” and “Till Baskets” and you will see the various types and sizes.

This was on the knot.com this is the description

Grocery stores obviously have goodies galore, plus playing cards, lottery tickets and more. We stuffed $13 worth of items into a $2 flower pot.
