Decorating With Baskets

Baskets are the most versatile home decorating accessory, wouldn’t you agree? Not only are they pretty and practical, but they also infuse texture and warmth into a room. I love decorating with baskets because they’ll never go out of style!

Even though I already have more than I need, I can never pass up a pretty basket! And I never regret buying more.

I use baskets for many things but my favorite look is filling them up with an abundance of flowers. As you can see above I used seasonal lilacs for a spring display. This was truly beautiful. The more flowers, the better.

You can also fill them with flowers and hang them from a doorknob or furniture hook.

Decorating with baskets works outside too.

I have a large vintage basket on my small front porch that I use as a seasonal display for flowers and plants. It’s a small area but it packs a big punch when I fill it with color.


Or just fill a big floor basket with seasonal branches from your yard. Any basket, filled with flowers, anywhere!

Of course, the most practical use for baskets is for pretty storage. I have them all over the house, in every room.

You can even hang a small basket on your coat hook for small things like sunglasses and keys.


The basket on my kitchen counter holds snacks like potato chips and other unsightly kitchen items that I like to have easily accessible.

My upper kitchen cabinets also contain baskets. In that area I have them filled with things we don’t use too often, such as birthday candles and cake decorations.


Baskets with handles are great for a caddy to carry things around. Such as garden supplies, condiments for a barbeque, or cleaning supplies. Filled baskets make such great gift ideas with a pretty presentation.

Use a large round tray as a serving platter or on your coffee table filled with decor such as candles or plants.

You can also use baskets as decor even without filling them with anything. In my daughter’s room, I hung a gallery wall of baskets over her bed.

I used a collection of vintage mini baskets as a display in my dining nook. It really creates a cozy cottage vibe. I also love the look of a group of baskets hung from the ceiling.
