Wine is always a good choice to put into a basket. Choose two good vintages and include two pretty goblets.

This basket is filled with everything to host a party! Pretty paper plates, baking cups, paper runners, paper straws and party candles!
Here's a tip: Before the bow, tie off cellane or basket bag with waxed twine or super strong twine first. It keeps your bow from looking over handled.
