This charming, rustic container is actually concrete made to look like a basket in Danielle Rollins edible garden. You can find these containers and other housewares on her online interior design site.
Woven baskets placed underneath the mudroom's console table offer storage for flip flops, towels and other items carried in and out of the home. Photos of beach life hang on the mudroom wall, bringing the coast indoors.
Keep your sweets on display with rustic buckets packed with brown paper bags filled with favorites like popcorn, pretzels and chocolate candies. Once the party heads inside the stadium, each brown bag can be brought in rather than having to traipse up stairs with the entire bucket.
What’s better for fall color than a pansy? How about a trailing pansy that naturally rambles and scampers over the edges of hanging baskets? Cool Wave pansy does just that, opening classic pansy blooms in a rainbow of shades. Look for hanging baskets planted with Cool Wave spreading pansies, or whip up your own. Choose baskets in single colors to complement your home’s exterior. Or get in on nature’s autumn act by hanging baskets overflowing with pansies that contrast with the fall color of nearby trees.
A basket will organize and easily transport your indoor picnic. Be sure to include your napkins, drink mixes and snacks. You can achieve a unique look by spray painting the basket or adding a ribbon to your current picnic basket. Include your guests by asking them to bring a favorite food and background information on its origin, perfect for a history lesson and unique dinner or lunch experience.
