Green Easter Basket
This has got to be the most beautiful Easter basket I have ever seen. Why? Because it's green. My favorite color. It's the most perfect shade. and look at those elegant ribbons.
This lovely Easter basket, created by Hannah Milman for Martha Stewart is simply superb.
The foliage. The beautifully dyed Easter eggs. And last but not least, the stately chocolate bunny wearing a matching bow. What's not to love?
Child's Easter Basket
This adorable Easter basket may actually be a pale blue check, but as far as I can tell it's pale green. It appears to be wearing a buttoned up skirt. Love that detail.
The baby chicks, and bunny nestled in the felt straw are so sweet. This is a great Easter basket for a child. The idea can also be adapted for a baby shower gift.
Rustic Easter Basket
This basket is probably a rustic metal. It may or may not be green, but work with me people. It's filled with moss and hosta plants. The miniature blue Easter eggs add just the right touch of color.
How To Get The Look:
You can make Easter baskets very similar to these by:
- getting an interesting basket, think old not cheap thin ones made for Easter
- painting or spray painting the Easter basket an elegant, muted color. Notice that none of them or overly bright or neon.
- selecting a matching ribbon and simple, not commercial-looking, stuffed or chocolate chicks and bunnies to place inside.
- buying unpainted papier mache or wooden eggs from a craft store and painting them to match or coordinate.
- choosing no more than 3 basic colors for the whole basket and accessories which will give it a designer look
Here's my vintage metal Easter Basket. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to paint it a lovely shade of green and include it in this post. How do you think I should do it up for Easter?
