Hey guys! Today I am so excited to join a fabulous group of talented ladies at A Lifestyle of Love blog hop hosted by Cindy at County Road 407! A Lifestyle of Love gets together every other month to bring you beautiful vintage and farmhouse decorating ideas using antique and repurposed goodies!
If you’re coming over from Common Ground, welcome!
Today I am bringing you a couple of simple ideas on how to use berry baskets in your decor.
My first idea is a simple way to display live flowers in a berry basket. Of course you can simply use potted flowers, but I decided to use flower cuttings because I have them growing in my garden. It saved me a trip to the store, not to mention they are free.
I used a small bowl that would fit into the berry basket. I cut some floral foam to fit in the bowl, soaked it in water, put it in the bowl and added the flowers (mums).
I then put everything into the basket and covered the bowl with Spanish moss.
I made another one and then placed them on my dining room table as a centerpiece. I used wire berry baskets as well to add some texture.
Here’s another picture with my windows getting blasted by the California sun.
One more picture, which leads up to my second berry basket decor idea on the right…
Berry baskets make great shelf fillers! I used berry and bushel baskets to fill the top shelf of the corner display in my dining room.
That’s it for me! Next up is Decor To Adore!

Your tall wall of shelves is so unique and filled with such fabulous accessories, especially those stacked baskets. Have a great weekend!!

I love your berry basket ideas, Michelle. And love those wire basket things you put them in, too. Where did you get them? I’m definitely ready for sunflower season seeing your pictures! We’ve been picking black cap raspberries and red raspberries in our yard this week; love fresh summer berries!
Thank you so much Lora! I got them on Amazon and totally forgot to include the links here – I’ll add them in a bit! Have a wonderful week!
I love your berry basket centerpiece display. Perched on the wood board and filled with flowers, the berry baskets are so charming. I also love how they look on your shelves.
Thank you so much Paula! 🙂
Hi Michelle, You forgot to mention the cute crates peeking out from underneath your corner display. 🙂 I love your dining room display. Very pretty!
Ha Ha I did totally forget them! 🙂 I was so focused on my berry baskets that I totally forgot about the crates. Good catch!

I love your berry baskets; I prefer these old wooden ones to today’s plastic or green “egg carton” cardboard! It sure is a farmhouse look and so homey!
Thanks so much Kathy!
