This month has all the fall feels in a basket. I LOVE MY Goodwill basket find. It was originally a picnic basket, but now it includes two of my favorite things- pumpkins and more pumpkins.
This Goodwill basket find was perfect for a fall basket idea for the entry.
This summer I discovered the treasures at Goodwill.
I found this picnic basket this summer and was waiting for inspiration. My family cannot wrap their head around me going to Goodwill the week after we dropped off a haul of treasures for others to find. Bless their hearts!
FALL BASKET IDEA FOR THE ENTRY
I am always ready for fall by mid-August. And this photo makes me think of warm and cozy- even in August.
I knew I wanted to use this picnic basket and just removed (and stored) the wicker basket’s lid.
When I assembled the fall basket it was like packing a grocery bag. I considered the weight and placement of the pumpkins. Instead of wheat bundles, I went with these fall stems from Hobby Lobby.
With the floral stems anchored in the middle, I had a strong base.
From there I used a variety of pumpkins with different colors and textures.
I tried my hardest to stay with muted tones, but I had to add a little pop of color.
I planned this fall basket for our hearth, but the textures between the basket and the stone were too busy.
That’s when I set my eyes on our entry table.
Recently, I moved a desk (from the college at-home year) to our entry. Do you remember this twenty-two-year-old Pottery Barn piece in the entry. The desk is a place to drop the mail before I sort it. I decided an oversize basket with a side lamp was a way to welcome fall at from the front door.
I love this fall basket challenge.
Thank you for stopping by today. I would love it if you pinned this fall basket.
