Gift Basket of Flowers


Here is a gift basket that I made as a "thank you" gift. Everything in the basket we grew on the farm. The only cost of this gift was the basket itself as well as a piece of fresh flower florist foam.
To assemble: I cut the foam to fit into the basket. I lined the basket with plastic. I soaked the foam until drenched. I then put the foam on top of the plastic liner. I started adding sunflowers until I got the shape that I wanted. Then I took farm vegetables and covered the entire bottom of the basket with them. These included different types of peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes. This basket took me less than 2o minutes to assemble not counting picking time.

Wow, that's a really nice gift basket! It's simple, but its beauty is classic. It reminded me of the Calgary gift baskets that were sent to me by my Canadian friend as housewarming gifts. Too bad she wasn't there at the party. She also said that she can have her favorite florists in Calgary make me some more baskets and I only had to tell her so. So sweet of her! I hope we get to see each other soon.
