Decorating A Magnolia Basket

My BFF, Roxanne, went to Magnolia this past weekend. She found this wonderful basket in the dent and ding section and thought of me. Honestly, I am in love with it. It is HUGE! So huge it takes up almost the entire end of my dining table. Once I got it home, it was time to have some fun. I’ve spent the morning decorating a Magnolia basket!

Did I mention that she only paid $15.00 for this basket? Original it was $88.00.

What a steal!

I knew that I wanted to decorate my basket with fall decor.

In my mind, the basket would be decorated with lots of white pumpkins, some soft sage greenery and maybe some filler.

However, as I was unpacking my fall decor to see what I had and what I needed to buy , I saw that all of my velvet pumpkins matched my dining room chairs.

Since this basket was definitely going in the dining room, wouldn’t velvet pumpkins be a good fit?

So, I thought why not?

I could always try it out and if I didn’t like it, I would only be out my time.

I stacked the pumpkins in the basket and stepped back to see how it looked.

Right away, I noticed two things.

One, that white sweater pumpkin was too white to be with the rest of the pumpkins.

It had to go!

Two, it needed a little something else, besides pumpkins!

A little more texture, something to break up all of the velvet texture.

After digging through my stash, I found this simple berry vine.

And you know what?

I really like it!

Don’t get me wrong, I may still change it to the white pumpkins and sage greenery, but for today I’m loving all of the wonderful fall colors.

Decorating a Magnolia basket was a lot of fun!

So much fun that I see a lot more playing with my basket in my future!

Until next time…


    1. Thank you Cindy! That little white pumpkin found a new home. I have to admit while I’m drawn to lighter, brighter colors as I get older I sure do love the jewel tones for fall! Try and stay cool my friend! Oh, I saw that you were featured recently. I saw the picture of your porch and donkey and I knew it was yours immediately! Congrats!

    1. Thank you Benita! Loving getting the fall colors out, which is unusual for me when it’s this dang hot! Girl…. I need some fall weather soon. Stay cool and have a great week!

  1. Love 💕 the basket 🧺 and what a deal! Your multi-colored, velvet pumpkins 🎃 are perfect 👌🏾 for it . The berry vine adds that finishing touch. I know you didn’t ask for opinions and this is just mine. It’s not written in stone or expecting it to be yours. I am not an expert decorator. I would remove the leopard one.

    1. Shirley I love all of the ideas I get from my friends! I will do a little rearranging – or buy a new one! lol! Thanks and you imputes is always welcome!
