Gathering Baskets…

pulling together your entertaining,

party or project pieces,

gathering them up and artfully displaying them

in wonderful baskets,

~ gathering baskets~

Here’s a peek, at a La Famiglia gathering basket,

I’m working on for the upcoming

Assistance League of the Eastside Auction.

I started with a vintage inspired Tuscan wire basket/tray.

Stocked it with gorgeous mismatched glasses,

from some of my favorite décor haunts.

Love the mix of shapes, styles & sizes.

Great for flowers, votives

and of course, beverages!

I added a rustic Italian cheese board,

and a rattan baguette basket,

(love the texture it adds)

I tucked in crisp, white, cotton napkins,

chunky faux ‘horn’ knives,

a cotton, drying towel,

one of our signature La Famiglia

Burlap & Chalk bags,

AND a few hours of Lifestyle Design time.

Keeping a basket like this on hand,

will make your next gathering, project or daily rituals, a snap!

ALL of the pieces are so versatile;

plus, it looks cool!

I’m pulling together a few of these baskets for our

kitchen, dining room and butler’s pantry,

(where an UPDATE is in progress.)

I’ll share soon.

Hope you check back.

Oh, one last thing,

French ‘Bubbles!’

I hope they like it.

Hope you…get gathering.

Make it beautiful.

Would love to know.

Send me a photo via my e-mail, so I can share it!
