Southern Living

The Designers: Becca Knuth and Melissa Porter of Asheville Event Company, ashevilleeventco.com

The Inspiration: Nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains, Asheville, North Carolina, is
one of the South’s most scenic cities. This welcome basket celebrates its rustic charm with rough-hewn details, such as a tartan camp blanket and nubby wooden candle. The inclusion of a hiking trail map and tickets to Biltmore Estate encourages guests to enjoy the area’s natural beauty—and a packet of wildflower seeds lets them take home a little piece of it.

Wine Box
Think inside the box! Upcycle the crates from your wine order, like Becca and Melissa did here, for your welcome baksets. Wines from local vineyards offer a taste of the region.

You can even give away the iconic landscape of the mountains with this tree limb soy candle, $22; mountaintrollcandles.com

Jar of Honey
Oh Honey! Your guests will love Sweet Betty Bee’s variety,$5; sweetbettybees.com

Seed Packets
Flowers are always a perfect present. With seeds of charming North Carolina wildflowers, guests can make the gift of flowers last even longer, $12.95; 828/210-2726

No one gives visitors a taste of the city like the local brewery, $32 per case; highlandbrewing.com

Let them take the flavor of Asheville to their own kitchen with the Tupelo Honey Cafe$34.94; tupelohoneycafe.com
