Living baskets serve as versatile decorations for any occasion, but finding the perfect basket isn’t always easy. In this video, Vonda LaFever AIFD, CFD, PFCI discovers the rectangular willow basket from Pioneer Imports & Wholesale is the perfect size to hold up to four plants in 6” pots.  


Vonda uses this basket to walk viewers through the process of creating a gorgeous plant arrangement from start to finish. She starts with the collection of four green plants, placing each one comfortably in the basket. If you were working with fewer or smaller plants, the oval willow basket in the background could serve as a suitable alternative too.

Simply use a small block of foam to boost the height of any plant that might need it. 

Arrange any hanging ivy or foliage to create better balance within the living basket design. Cover visible pots with a small swath of moss – Vonda points out that sheet moss and Spanish moss are attractive options. 

But what about color? Vonda picks a set of bright silk mums from the Pioneer catalog to bring a splash of vivid red to the arrangement, a terrific way to complete the look and add more visual interest. 

The Pioneer Imports & Wholesale offers a wide variety of wholesale baskets, silk flowers, and other useful accessories that can take any living plant arrangement to the next level. Explore the website for fabulous ideas and inspiration.
