Simple Ideas For Bushel Baskets

Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest. Today I’m sharing one of those simple ideas for using bushel baskets. I’m also joining a fun group of bloggers for a Bountiful Fall Basket blog hop. If you are just stopping by or joining me from Kristin’s White Arrows Home, welcome!

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.

The apple slice with brie and prosciutto served on a slate cheese board is a favorite appetizer of ours. For recipe ideas check out the post Three Easy Appetizers For Fall.
