Fall can be a hectic time of year with work, kids, school and loads of activities. Do you need an excuse to slow down for a movie night or a game night? I look for those excuses all the time, and pulled together a few things to create a special evening on the spot.
The bushel basket brimming with apples looked so pretty on the counter, but even better on the kitchen table with a cozy plaid throw and candles. These red and yellow beauties will soon be part of mouth-watering recipes, but for now they make a delicious centerpiece.
Don’t you just love bushel baskets in the fall? I just want to fill them to the top with fruits and vegetables, then imagine all the recipes I can whip up to impress the family.
Berry baskets are so handy to use along with the bushel baskets. Great for organizing and storage too.
How about using them to hold popcorn, chips or pretzels? Just use a paper napkin or paper towel for an insert. Clean up is a breeze and the berry baskets can be used over and over.
This time of year you’ll mostly see bushel baskets loaded with pumpkins, apples and mums. What kind of fall opportunities are you envisioning? Here’s a list to get you started.
