Pretty DIY Easter Basket
Head to TJ Maxx or Michaels to find your Easter basket (both places have tons of options), you really don't need to spend a lot on the basket itself. I recommend a white basket with a white or natural liner. The basket pictured is from TJ Maxx. Create the base of your basket first using shredded paper (and tissue paper underneath in a matching color to create extra volume) - I recommend white, ivory, or kraft. Add real or paper flowers to add volume and dimension. These paper flowers from Paper Source were so easy to assemble (just pull the tissue paper apart to create the petals). See before and after below.
Find filler items in pastel colors and try to mix in perishable and non-perishable items. I love the striped paper cups and floral dessert plates from Paper Source, they are perfect for a spring party! I want the entire set, which includes dinner plates, cocktail napkins, and dinner napkins. The bunny crackers (from Paper Source, as well) come in a pack of assorted pastel colors and can be re-used as favors at each place setting on your recipient's Easter table.
For the sweet treats, I chose some of my favorite things - cupcakes, macarons, and candies from Sugarfina. The macarons are from a local shop, Olivia Macaron, and are perfect for an adult Easter basket. They are chic, delicious, and come in plenty of Easter colors. Sprinkles Cupcakes does a sample of mini cupcakes for just $5.
The backdrop for this photoshoot is actually fine wrapping paper from Paper Source! I used two sheets of the Distressed Blue Floral paper. I can't wait to try other styles for future shoots!
