Planting Flowers in Thrift Store Baskets

Last week my daughter and I went to a local nursery ..They had the cutest baskets planted with flowers,
watering cans and wicker picnic hampers too ! The picnic hamper above is my daughters .. She loves those African daisies !
 So off we went to the Goodwill and Salvation Army .. we bought a bunch of cheap baskets ..then on to the Home Depot to buy some flowers..

 Here are our versions , our flowers need to grow in and we will need some warm weather for that !The above basket is huge ! On our way to Home Depot it was hanging out of someones garbage can :)
 We used Miracle Grow potting soil and just planted right in the baskets. The baskets were 99 cents to $4.00 for the picnic hamper.
 This basket was 99 cents and has a fabric liner..

These are my daughters..

I will show you all these again when they start to grow and fill in !
Hope you all have a wonderful week  ! Thanks so much for stopping by ! I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest , Etsy..all the links are in the sidebar !

Linking to these fabulous parties !

What a darling idea! I have oodles of baskets! Whenever I see them, I buy them at GW and SA. I have a lot I can use for this. Once, many years ago, I received a beautiful basket of plants and when I planted it in the soil, I just planted the whole basket! I will be doing this for sure!!!

What a cute idea, Priscilla! I'll have to go down to the basement to see if my husband saved any of my old baskets (he's been on a cleaning kick lately and it's driving me crazy!).

I do love flowers planted in baskets! I have one (a moss covered thrift find) out on my porch. You did a great job on yours! One year I went to our local nursery and saw a giant basket planted it was at least 4 feet long. It was only $50 and my daughter was getting married in Aug. I bought it and placed it at the edge of our deck. It was the hit of the wedding. I had it for 4 or so years before it finally just fell apart. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
