This week I’m going to post about some of the things I use and love for parties. And then you get to choose your own giveaway prize.

Day 2: berry baskets. Cute berry baskets are the best. And they look so much better in photos than those boring plastic ones from the grocery store. But don’t stop there–you can use them to package gifts, homemade treats, or fresh fruit from the farmer’s market. Okay, I doubt that anyone will really want to win these, but I still want to include them in my list of great party things. My favorites so far are these wooden baskets from Garnish and these classic cardboard baskets from Bake it Pretty.

These berry baskets are also eligible items for the giveaway. If you win you can choose any item you’d like from everything that I’m featuring this week. You can enter on any of the posts. One entry per person. Just leave a comment and a valid email address to contact you at when you win. This giveaway will close at Midnight on Friday, July 16th and I’ll post the winner on Saturday or Monday.

Day 2: you can choose 10 wooden baskets from Garnish and 6 cardboard baskets from Bake it Pretty.
