Easter Picnic Baskets with Pretty Pink Posh




What is it about Easter baskets?  I've always loved them.  



When I was little I used the same one every year.  One that was passed down from my uncle.  My daughter, Lauren, used the exact same Easter basket (this is when she was almost two) and I'm keeping it for Louisa.  She'll be the fourth generation to use it.  It's old, it's worn, but I love it!



I'm also in love with these mini Easter picnic baskets.  So fun to make and they turn out adorable, especially when topped off with that sweet little bunny.  I'm sharing these today over on the Pretty Pink Posh blog.



I've sized these to hold 2 plastic eggs.  Even though they're mini, they'll hold plenty to give as an Easter treat.  



You can check out the video to see how easy the baskets are to make and there's a couple of quick tips on the tag, too:





Louisa (even though she's only 4 1/2  months old) is definitely getting one of these.  Her momma can keep it and put it out every year.  If you make an Easter Picnic Basket to give away, I bet it will be loved enough to keep from year to year.  

Do you still have an old Easter Basket?  Or maybe, an old bunny?

  2. I just love these. You always make the most adorable things! I always got a treat for Easter; but I only remember having a real basket one year and that was b/c I went to an Easter egg hunt in the local park and had to to collect my eggs. I remember there was one prize egg, a large foil wrapped chocolate egg and I was dying to be the one to find it. I didn't though. And back then they hid real eggs that had been dyed. Back in the dark ages, haha. I think mama basically hid one thing, like a chocolate bunny most years. I do remember always wanting a store bought Easter basket b/c they were over wrapped with that crinkly cello paper and tied with a ribbon. That was 'to die for' to me. But my all time "I could just die if I had one" was the big sugared eggs with scenes inside them. They were expensive, but it thrilled me to pick them up at the store and view the scenes inside. It was like magic. On Easter I always got a new 'bonnet'; straw with an elastic string that went under the chin, with a ribbon around the band; got a fancy organza ruffled dress and patent leather shoes with socks that had ruffles on the top. I felt like a princess.

  8. These are so, so sweet and adorable, Lori! Love the pastel colors and polka dots and love those little tags with the bunnies! The shape and size of these are fabulous. I agree with you about Easter baskets being the sweetest things. There's something so nostalgic about them. I think it's just beyond precious that you still have your childhood basket, and that little Louisa will make four generations of family that will use and love it! <3

  13. Those are so cute Lori! LOVE the sweet paper 3D baskets.. My boys each had their own baskets while growing up.. Everyone had to have a different one! LOL I don't have them anymore.... Just don't like to save things like I use too! I still have 1 basket left since my youngest is 13... we still pull it out every year for him and color Easter Eggs.. Honestly I don't think you could ever be too old to color Easter Eggs! (wink Wink) Have a great day!
