Step-by-Step Guide on how to make a Fruit Gift Basket
Now let’s discuss the steps that the gift shops generally follow when preparing a decorative fruit basket for you.
They do select a particular container to keep the fruits. It is generally the wicker basket but they can also select any type of container that looks alluring, robust and big enough that can hold on a maximum number of fruits.
Then they add a cushion to the bottom of the basket with different types of fillers such as shredded paper, plastic basket grass, raffia strips, etc. If you have ordered a basket that is deep enough then they will add a thick bed of filler to bear the fruits and it to make them visible
Various types of fruits are added into the basket ranging from apples, oranges, pineapple, grapes, bananas, etc.
As per your order, they may even add small goodies in the basket apart from the fruits such as candies, nuts, coffee or tea packages, etc to make it look much more desirable.
The basket is arranged with the heaviest fruits being placed at the beginning towards the bottom. The smaller fruits are placed around the edges while the largest ones are placed in the middle with the smallest fruits on the top of the basket to fill up the gaps.
The design is then completed with a large bow. Generally, wires are placed to attach the ribbon on the outer edge of the basket as the part of the decoration or a ribbon is tied to the handle of the basket as well.
Some of the tips that can be useful if you decide to design the basket on your own sometimes. Select the fruits that are strong enough and do not have even the slightest mark on them (totally fresh).
Avoid adding in very small fruits such as blueberries, raspberries, etc as they may crush easily under the weight of the basket if they fall on the side of the basket among the heavier fruits or they even trip and fall off when placed on the top as it would be hard to place them firmly in the basket.
