Red, White & Blue Celebration Basket

This basket just screams Celebration for the Red, White & Blue!  I was so excited when my Sister-in-law handed me all these wonderful items for her themed basket she chose to do!

Red, White & Blue Celebration Basket


The items can be used for Memorial Day, Flag Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day!  It’s the American colors so you can keep the decorations out around the house all year!

This basket was one of four different baskets that I put together for some lucky winner!  The other 2 prize baskets that I have already posted are the Sports Fan Basket and the Strawberry Lemonade Mojito Basket.  My Sister-in-law did a fantastic job in getting items for this basket!  Here’s what she gave me to put it together:

  1.   Cherry Vodka
  2.   Patriotic Bottle Cover Dress with Bonnet
  3.   Red, Silver & Blue Necklaces (3)
  4.   Patriotic Door Knob Bells
  5.   Red Headband with Pom Poms
  6.   Boxes of Pop-its (2)
  7.   Patriotic Star Tattoos (8 pk)
  8.   Sparklers (3)
  9.   Red Balloon Holder with Streamers
  10.   Star Serving Plate
  11.   Dish Towels (2 – 1 Red and 1 Blue)
  12.   Recipe Card with 3 Recipes using Cherry Vodka*

After putting everything in the basket, it was easy to wrap it up.  Check out how I did that on my How To Wrap Up a Gift Basket post.  The only difference is that I chose plastic wrap instead of tulle to wrap this basket up.  I chose plastic wrap because it looked shiny, which I thought would go well with this theme.  Again, looking at this picture, it doesn’t do this basket justice.  Unfortunately, I really need to work on my pictures!  I was always bad at taking pictures, so that’s definitely a must to work on for me!!  I’m hoping after you read all the ideas in this post, you will be encouraged to go ahead and make your own basket!  It’s really easy to do, no matter what kind of basket you choose!

*The 3 Recipes I put on the recipe card were:  Love on the Rocks, Dirty Shirley, and Cherry Dum Dum.
