Hi there friends! Thanks for stopping by today!! We are finally having some true fall weather in Louisiana and I’m LOVING it!!! I spent most of last weekend outside soaking it up. Today, I’m joining some of my blogging buddies to share our bountiful fall baskets and you all are in for a treat!
Amber at Follow the Yellow Brick Home did such a fabulous job putting this group together and you are sure to find lots of inspiration. If you are visiting from The Crowned Goat, I’m so excited you popped over for a visit! Get ready for a picture overload because I may have gotten a little carried away snapping photos. 😉
I have a slight obsession for vintage baskets. Well… truthfully, I have a slight obsession for ALL things vintage! Vintage items add so much character to a space. Using 4 vintage baskets that I already had, along with natural elements from outdoors, I was able to create these spaces without spending a penny. That’s my kind of decorating!
How to Style Vintage Fall Baskets

Baskets are the perfect fall addition. They are relatively inexpensive and their beautiful wood tones add a warmth to your fall decor. There are so many different ways that you can style fall baskets and today I’m going to show you a few. If you are looking for vintage baskets, the best places to find them are at goodwill, yard sales, and flea markets. There are also plenty on Etsy, one of my favorite places to shop vintage decor.
Split Oak Basket
The first basket that I used is a hand woven oak basket. The deep brown color and all the imperfections are what drew this vintage loving heart to this beautiful basket. I clipped some goldenrod, and other wild flowers on side of the road, to place in the basket. I love the simple statement that it adds to this space.
Stacked pumpkins in vintage crocks is another simple idea for adding in fall decor. I love the colors and the varying heights that they add to the space.
Bushel baskets are a staple for fall. They are a visual reminder of harvesting season. I can just imagine farmers gathering their crops and their harvest overflowing in these baskets. What a beautiful image! I love the simple things in life and have been craving more simplicity lately.
I clipped some crepe myrtle branches to place in the bushel basket for another simple fall look.
This beautiful grainsack pillow is from my sweet friend Mallary at The Feathered Farmhouse. I just love those leather ties on the sides! Mallary is so sweet to offer my friends 10% off all purchases by using the code BEAUTYFORASHES. She has some of the cutest farmhouse finds!
Wicker baskets are pretty readily available. I find them at my local thrift store quite often and they are usually only a couple of bucks. They are great for all seasons, but I especially love them in the fall.
I clipped some of my dried hydrangeas to place in the basket. My 5 year old and I went on a little scavenger hunt and gathered some acorns and dried leaves to scatter on the table. I love the color and texture they add! And the best part – free decor! Oh yeah, baby!! I did purchase the pears, but those will be enjoyed by my boys. They couldn’t wait for me to snap these pics so they could hurry and bite into one.
The amber bottles seem to be a big trend this fall and I love it! This is another item that you can find at most thrift stores and flea markets. There also plenty on Etsy, if you’re not able to find any locally. I love them grouped together in a collection of varying shapes and sizes.
This picnic basket brings back lots of memories. I remember going on picnics as a child and those are some of my favorite memories. Isn’t it funny how it’s usually the simple things in life that are the most memorable. I love creating the same experiences with my children that I enjoyed so much as a child.
Pine cones are another way to bring fall indoors. I gathered some pine cones from the yard to add into the picnic basket. The contrasting browns are the perfect combo.
I hope some of these vintage fall baskets have inspired you to create a fall space that you love. Be sure to head over to White Arrows Home next! You are going to love Kristin’s cozy cabin!
Have a blessed day, friends! xoxo
