Birch Baskets

The snow has melted here on the east coast, and as the grass (yet to be green) appears I am dreaming of spring days without coats.  I found these wonderful birch baskets on New Hampshire Creation's Etsy shop.  These birch baskets are made by hand from by floral designer Allie and her husband, Chuck.  The baskets are made to order from already fallen trees.  The pair also make birch vases, grapevine baskets, boxes and accept custom orders.
Can you imagine this basket filled with colorful eggs for Easter?  Perhaps it could be a hostess gift of flowers for the center of the table.
These smaller baskets could be take home party favors filled with a few eggs and candy, or for an adult gathering some pretty spring flowers.
A mayday flower door hanger for your neighbor, or perhaps multiple cones hanging in a row to brighten a celebration?
I'm imagining a great photo prop for a flower girl or just a young child's first Easter.  We saw our first robin this weekend, spring can't come soon enough!

Those are beautiful .. I just may have to check them out.
I wonder if they'll sell me the wall in the background as well... I love things with a story to tell!
