Expressionery Wraps Gift Basket for the Entertainer

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post but all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands and companies that make this blog possible.Expressionery Wraps Gift BasketToday I am sharing how to put together a fun basket full of amazing goodies from World Market as part of the Expressionery Wraps Bloggy Party. This particular basket would be great as a bridal shower gift or as a housewarming gift and it is PERFECT for someone who loves to have friends and family over for a get together.

First thing I did was gather everything I bought at World Market and my custom self-inking stamp designed by Laura Kelly for

I love that the basket came with a gift wrapping kit which included: raffia, gift, tag, excelsior, and a clear cello bag. I ended up buying purple paper shred to add some color to my basket and in the end I used the heart gift tag which was purchased separately.  Expressionery Wraps Gift Basket

Next I gathered the gift, I went with some appetizer serving pieces which are perfect for entertaining. The pieces are in white and glass which makes it easy for the gift recipient to use at any party.  Expressionery Wraps Gift BasketOk, now to put the basket together. Even though I purchased the purple shred for a pop of color I still added the excelsior to add more height.Expressionery Wraps Gift BasketAfter adding the excelsior I added some purple paper shred.Expressionery Wraps Gift BasketNext, I placed the gift pieces one at a time moving them around as needed until I liked how the whole basket looked. Once all the serving pieces were in their place I added more paper shred to any open spot to fill it in and look more full.Expressionery Wraps Gift BasketI bought some cute chalkboard picks and wrote some appetizers names on a couple of them and placed them inside the basket too. They give the gift recipient some ideas for their next party plus they can use the picks to label the appetizers they are serving.Expressionery Wraps Gift BasketFinally, I placed the completed basket inside the clear cello bag, tied it off with some raffia, added the raffia bow, added the heart kraft gift tag that I stamp with my custom self-inking stamp designed by Laura Kelly for, and finally I added some of the chalkboard gift tags for an extra little touch.Expressionery Wraps Gift BasketI love how this basket turned out and I am sure the person you give the basket to will also love and get great use out of it.Expressionery Wraps Gift Basket for the EntertainerPIN IT
