Plants In Baskets

It’s almost Friday — and almost Thanksgiving!  🙂  I’m so excited, as there is so much to look forward to, and I am in full-on nesting mode and having a blast.  I was perusing the clearance aisles of HomeGoods the other day and found a large basket on super discount — it was only $12.  I knew just what I was going to do with it!

 I love that the basket is dark and adds a new texture to the room.  You really can’t have enough baskets, people.  Corralling dog toys, shoes!, odds and ends, receipts, napkins… I can think of about a million ways to use baskets, and I bet you can, too.  But this was a new way to use a basket for me — and I love it!

The poinsettia adds that touch of red that I was told every room needs when I was in design school.  😉 I’m not sure how long these are supposed to live, but I hope it lasts through the season.  I’ve been good about watering it, but not over-watering it, so we will see.

This got me thinking about baskets and plants as a pair… I see this everywhere — Pinterest, design magazines, catalogs…  And I see it in different styles.  Ultra modern aesthetics usually use a more saggy or casual basket, and with traditional vignettes, I see a lot of structured baskets.  But that doesn’t mean you can’t break the rules!  Do it — I dare you!
