An Easter basket is a quintessential part of this springtime holiday's celebration.
Here are three tips to designing the perfect basket every kid will love.
1. THINK OUTSIDE THE BASKET.
Traditional rattan baskets are beautiful, but don't be afraid to do something different. A colorful metal bucket personalized with kids' names is just as fun – plus, it lends a slightly industrial touch, which can be a nice contrast to Easter's typical pastels and brights.
2. CREATE A CLEAN CANVAS TO SHOWCASE THE BOUNTY.
To show off dyed-egg masterpieces and pretty Easter gifts, stick to mostly neutral baskets. A creamy white basket fitted with a decorative white liner offers a simple, clean approach, while white Easter grass – rather than the shiny green variety – highlights the basket's bounty.
3. MAKE IT PERSONAL.
Choose a liner for each child's basket based on the colors and patterns they love. Also, have each embroidered with their name to give everyone their own special look.
