Styling Harvard: Grown Up Easter Baskets

Some of my favorite things are pretty packaged gift baskets. I love to do grown up Easter baskets for the adults in my my family. A few years ago, I did simple gold wire baskets with a farmhouse style bottle filled with orange juice, a split of champagne and a chocolate bunny for the ladies and mini Coronas with a lime and a chocolate bunny for the men. This year, I decided to step things up a bit. 

Wooden crates make for pretty packages in my book so I went to Michaels to grab a few. I firmly believe that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make a big impact. Dollar Tree is one of my favorite places to find inexpensive items for gift baskets. I picked up chocolate Russell Stover bunnies and repackaged them in cellophane bags tied with some raffia.

I also got some of these mini candles at Dollar Tree. They’re so cute and look much more expensive! I bought regular match boxes and glued decorative paper I simply printed out to them. Instant glam!I loved these little canvases that I found there too. Dollar Tree was really speaking my love language that day. I added some paint brushes tied with twine along with some faux moss (I’ll give you one guess where those are from!) and some mini succulents for a sophisticated and grown up theme. You know how much I love my champagne so a great final addition was a bottle of bubbles with a couple of champagne glasses (glasses from DT of course!). You could also swap out the champagne for a bottle of wine and different glasses. For a different twist, I picked up this round baskets from Michaels. I love the classic look of these. I made this more of a pampering theme. Nice smelling hand lotions, a good magazine, home made lavender bath salts and another cute Dollar Tree candle. Of course, you can’t forget the chocolate bunny! 

I had so much fun creating these grown up Easter baskets! I love when you can take inexpensive things and give them a high end, high impact look.

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter weekend!
