Chinese Baskets

June 3, 2013 by
Ever thought about making a Chinese Basket for the festival?  Themes are as simple or as complicated as you wish. Start with something simple: Summer Toys: think beach: sand bucket, shovel, sunscreen, water bottle, Crystal Light, ball, bat, net, tennis balls, golf balls, sun hat, beach towel, backpack to carry all the stuff.
Or what about a shared basket: for grandchild and grandparent? Fishing pole, tackle box, a few lures, and a coupon for lunch at a local fast food place.What about a coupon for a movie? And a couple boxes of movie candy, a couple of dollars for popcorn. Done.Don’t be intimidated by the size of previous baskets. Good things do come in smaller packages.

Don’t really want to make a complete basket, but you have an unused holiday gift card? Why not donate it to the auction committee. They will take that gift card and add it to an already existing basket.

The possibilities are endless. Catch the sales while they’re hot, do your shopping before the summer heat rises, get it done early, so you can sit back and enjoy every minute of SummerFest 2013. No need to wrap: Joan and Crew will do that job for you: call: Joan: 586-786-0347
