Three Section Baskets
This basket, sprayed with a glossy black coat, is sectioned into three parts. At first glance it reminds you of a utensil holder or a non-traditional picnic basket. It's a wonderful vessel with many use options.
- Flower arranging is easy in this three-part basket. It's not easy
creating an attractive bounty in a wide-mouth container, especially when
you're not familiar with placement techniques.
- This is the perfect anchor basket for a gift that includes a bottled
beverage. The bottle is elevated, in one of the smaller sections, on the
bottom and sides by a few sheets of crumpled paper. Drink goblets or
champagne flutes fit nicely into the other small section.
- Ideas to fill the larger half section include Chinet plates (or similar, disposable dishes; fruit; cheese; sausage; cookies; assorted nuts; popcorn; tortilla chips; dips; and salsa.
This basket is decorated along the sides with popcorn knots.
It's a weaving technique you may not find in baskets at most retail and wholesale stores, but you'll still find beautifully-styled three-section baskets to make your home decorating or gift giving a success.
My reason for buying this black basket was to experiment with creating a black-and-white themed gift.
One of the items I added was black-and-white checked napkins draped over the basket's rim. The white accents brightened the dark basket.
I'm going to take this basket, which is the last one I have, and add candles in it. Tapers and large pedestal candles will fit into the larger section. Shred will be placed into the two smaller sections to elevate floating candles on one side and votives on the other. How do you plan to fill this type of basket?
