Spring Basket

• 27 April 2009


















Using Martha's miniature Garden basket as inspiration, I designed this for my mother-in-law recently (and then asked Cactus & Tropicals to put it all together for me). She allowed us to use their Paris apartment for our girls trip so coming up with something special was important to me. I mention this because something similar could easily serve as a lovely Mother's Day gift, or just a pretty Spring gift in general.

While I used little chocolate birds and eggs purchased in Paris, you could easily find similar substitutions. Perhaps try Jordan almonds for the eggs, and then try to find a chocolate lollipop at a locally-owned chocolate store. In fact, you could even make your own chocolate lollipops! It's pretty easy to do this if you have a mold, some sticks and good quality chocolate. My Mom used to make them for Valentine's Day.

That's just simply so darling! So would you mind... what did the cost run with Cactus & Tropicals?

Yours is lovelier than Martha's, actually. Well done.

So beautiful! Your mother-in-law is lucky to be the recipient of such a pretty basket, & you are lucky to have a mother-in-law with an apartment in Paris!!!
