Berry Baskets

It's the cutest packaging since the paper plate, or even the cellophane bag! Tie up treats and tiny gifts in berry baskets to give away.

Risa Baker is blushing over her berry basket obsession. She shares her ideas with Studio 5.

Have you seen the darling berry baskets that are all over Pinterest these days? I fell in love the minute I saw them! They are so fun, and add so much to any gift no matter how big or small! I thought I would share a few ideas with you for berry basket fillers. First, I have found two fantastic sources for berry baskets.

Glacier Valley Enterprises, which is basically a wholesaler for berry baskets. They specialize in selling large quantities of berry baskets in any and every style you can imagine.

Think Garnish, which is a party supply store, specializing in making your party decor unforgettable, with a large selection of decorative garnishes (including berry baskets) for every occasion.

The berry baskets on today's show came from both sources.

This basket works as a deep cleaning chore organizer for the year. You could also use it for coupons, or anything you have that you want to file. It was made using scrapbook paper cut to fit into the berry basket, a flower punch, circle punch, hand written labels, and mini clothespins from the craft store.

This basket is extra fun and full of paper strawberries that can be filled with candy or sweet little notes! The template for the strawberries is found HERE. This would work great for any occasion, including a teacher appreciation gift!

With Mother's Day right around the corner, why not give your mother or grandmother who likes to crochet, a cute little berry basket embellished with ribbon, and stuffed with yarn, crochet hooks and a new crochet pattern geared to her likes and interests?

Does your mom get breakfast in bed on Mother's Day? How darling is this presentation? Homemade granola, strawberry milk in a sweet small milk container, and fresh berries, packaged adorably in a lace embellished basket, complete with a wooden spoon for eating!

For the gardener on your list, you can't go wrong with this basket. It is filled with things from the dollar section of Target!

For the mom in your life who loves jewelry, give her some berries she can wear!

This darling little printable will melt her heart.

My son is turning eight this month, and we are having a family luncheon for him, where I will be serving some of his favorite foods. How much more adorable is it if the foods he likes are all packaged nicely in a berry basket? Notice the two donuts on the skewer make the number 8?

You can make your own tag with your child's favorite things listed as well!

The same son who is turning eight is having a friend party, and these sturdy cardboard berry baskets with a handle are perfect to hold and display all the food and favors at the end.

Wouldn't it be fun if you were planning a date night for your significant other, and left this little basket filled with everything you need for s'mores in his or her car in the morning, inviting him/her on a date with you? It would even be fun for a family night! The marshmallows are strawberry shaped and chocolate filled (from Wal-mart). Perfect for a berry basket!

Berry candy is fun for a berry basket as well!

It would be so fun to give someone a basket filled with fresh or candy berries, and a copy of this darling book, Blueberries for Sal.
