We’re sharing 5 ways to style a spring basket today!
When we were little my Mom used to let us ride home with our Granny from church and it was always such a treat.
Truthfully, she was kind of a wild lady on the road, so it frequently felt like an adventure.
Thankfully, her home wasn’t too far from the church ?
She kept an old church pew under her carport.
And nearly every time we came home there would be some sort of basket, galvanized bucket, or pea shelling pan filled with goodies.
Most of the time it was fruits and vegetables from surrounding farms.
Especially, in the summer.
Other times it would be sweets, a batch of soup, a bouquet of flowers, jars of jelly, or something that had just been canned.
Sometimes people would leave a note.
But more times than not, it was a random blessing that would show up unannounced.
Now that Spring has arrived and we’re starting to get out more thanks to the vaccine and some restrictions being lifted, I’ve been thinking about how we can keep that same spirit of community alive.
These simple gifts can quickly be made and easily dropped off or left on the porch of a friend, family member, or loved one.
Some of them might even be hospital or nursing home approved depending on what area of the country you live in.
Most are budget-friendly and you don’t have to have any special talent or skill to pull them off.
Here’s a look at 5 Ways to Style a Spring Basket…
To keep things consistent, I’m going to use the same basket for each example.
This one is medium to large in size.
Feel free to use whatever style of basket you like best though. There are so many budget-friendly fun shapes and sizes to choose from these days!
Keep in mind, you’ll need to have a few items on hand like floral foam, ribbon, burlap, moss, decorative bunnies, eggs, or other goodies to use as filler.
Also, and this probably goes without saying, the smaller the basket the fewer supplies you’ll actually need

Spring is such a great time to reclaim a sense of hope and purpose.
To find a way to bless others with random acts of kindness and small gestures of encouragement.
I know we’re all ready to get “back to normal.”
But I just want to gently remind you that some people’s lives will never feel normal again.
Taking the time to let someone know you’re thinking about them with an unexpected gift is an easy way to deliver happiness.
So, take advantage of the opportunity when you can.
