Honeymoon Basket

Since its been awhile since I last blogged I figured I better update lest I lose the few faithful readers that I have :)

I was looking through my pictures for inspiration and realized I never shared my "Honeymoon Basket." I waited for fear the bride and groom would see it before it was delivered to them, but that has been months ago!

When we married my best friend and her hubby made us one of these. We took it along with us to Santa Rosa Beach and loved everything in it! So I copied the idea for Ronnie's brother and his bride.

This is a fun, creative, and practical gift (well if the couple is driving somewhere, I don't think it would make a flight. It could also be used as a house warming gift.) Just find a cute and sturdy basket- think about something that could be used for a cute decorative purpose after. Then fill it with fun food and champagne.

We filled ours with champagne, fun fruit teas, chocolate, nuts, olive oil and bread dipping spices, salsa, crackers, cheese and nutella.

Don't forget to add some cute dishes, napkins, small silverware and towel. We found a lot of this at World Market.

Then pack the basket, wrap some cellophane on it, tie a bow and deliver to the happy couple!

Love it! Wish I was getting married all over again just to get a cute basket with such wonderful stuff in it. I know that Caleb and Katie loved it - I saw it in the getaway car! Happy memories.

Wow, that looks so pretty! You know, sometimes those baskets are very attractive, but they don't have anything in it that you actually look forward to eating--but THIS ONE LOOKS DELICIOUS! (I loved the nutella and the chocolate hazelnut balls, whatever they're called. . . nice European touch!)

loved your post!

Gift baskets are so fun. There's something about receiving a beautiful package full of fun things to taste and sip.
We went to a World Market in NC--I so wish we had one around here!
